Civic & Business Association

Tonight is the monthly meeting of the Ocracoke Civic & Business Association. Many folks wonder how Ocracoke is governed. We are not incorporated (though there are on-going discussions on this issue). Our most local government is the County Commissioners. However the Ocracoke Sanitary District (which administers our municipal water system) has the potential to act in many ways as a form of local government.

The Civic & Business Association is not an official governmental agency, however it does provide a voice for the citizens of the island, and is a vehicle for Ocracoke residents to debate local issues and influence policies that affect life on the island. You can read more about the Association, as well as peruse minutes from past meeetings here: It will be a few days before tonight's proceedings are posted on the web.
