Makes the following changes to the charter of the Town of Oak Island (Town) set out in SL 1999-66.
Amends Section 4.6, authorizing the Mayor Pro Tempore to call a special meeting of the town council (currently, only the mayor or the majority of council members have the authority to call a special meeting). Qualifies the provision permitting any business to be transacted at a special meeting that can be transacted at a regular meeting by limiting special meeting business as prescribed by prohibitions set out by the rules of procedure adopted by the town council pursuant to authority granted in GS 160A-71(c).
Amends Section 6.1, providing that the town manager is not required to be a resident of the Town during the town manager's tenure (currently, the town manager is not required to be a resident at the time of appointment but is required to be a resident during tenure of office).
Amends Section 8.1, requiring the town manager to appoint a town clerk to perform duties required by law or as directed by the town manager or town council (currently, the town manager may appoint a town clerk to perform duties as required by law or as directed by the town manager only).
Amends Section 8.2, requiring the town manager to appoint a tax collector as provided in GS 105-439 (provides for the appointment, term, qualifications, and bond of tax collectors) to collect all taxes owed to the Town and to perform the general duties of tax collectors set out in GS 105-350 and any other duties prescribed by general or local law (currently, the town manager may appoint a tax collector).
Amends Section 8.3, eliminating existing language authorizing the town manager to consolidate the offices of town clerk and town tax collector, delegate the functions of either office to the other, or perform part or all of the functions of any of the offices himself. Instead, adds new language requiring the town manager to appoint a finance director to perform the duties of the finance director as prescribed by the Local Government Budget and Fiscal Control Act (Article 3 of GS Chapter 159).
