Evacuation recommendations are based on a variety of factors including hurricane conditions, predicted rainfall amounts, storm surge, and other potential damaging effects that the hurricane could have on the Town of Wrightsville Beach. An order to evacuate is determined by the Town of Wrightsville Beach Board of Aldermen.
- Voluntary evacuation: A voluntary evacuation indicates that conditions are likely to deteriorate and you may want to seek alternative shelter. - Mandatory visitor evacuation: A mandatory visitor evacuation indicates that all non-residents must evacuate the Town of Wrightsville Beach and will not be allowed to return until the evacuation order is lifted. - Mandatory evacuation: A mandatory evacuation indicates that all persons must evacuate the Town of Wrightsville Beach. Emergency services are suspended and will not be available during a mandatory evacuation. - What happens if someone chooses not to leave during a mandatory evacuation? Can they be arrested or forced to leave? YES, North Carolina General Statue 14-288.20A makes it a Class 2 misdemeanor to violate any provision of an ordinance or a declaration enacted or declared by a municipality in an effort to deal with a state of emergency. Under N.C.G.S 166A-19.31, a municipality has the authority to place restrictions, curfews or make evacuation orders in a state of emergency. It is unlawful to violate those restrictions or orders. In addition, emergency services and utility services are suspended following a mandatory evacuation. It is always wise to comply with a mandatory evacuation order as it may save your life or the life of another.
Once the town has suspended operations during a mandatory evacuation, Town of Wrightsville Beach water and sewer services may be interrupted. Electricity services, provided by Duke Energy, may also be interrupted due to weather conditions.

You may also pre-pay for your parking at the Parking Office before you head to the beach. Passes are sold in hourly, daily, multiple days, and weekly quantities. This does not guarantee a parking space, but it is a convenience should you choose to pay before you find a space. No refunds are issued if you cannot find a parking space once a pass from the Parking Office has been purchased.
Approximately 1,800 spaces are enforced and available for public parking.
Meters are enforced every day from March 1st to October 31st.
If you have parked at a parking meter that is broken, please call 910-256-5453. Make sure you have the name of the street where the meter is located and the meter number. Any issues with meters, Pay Stations, or the Pay by Phone system should be reported to the parking office immediately. Citations resulting from unreported equipment malfunctions will be upheld.
Parking must be paid for each vehicle with the following exception:
If a valid handicap placard or license plate is displayed in/on a vehicle parked in a marked handicap space, no payment is required. A handicap placard or plate does not enable free parking elsewhere.
The parking program has the authority to use wheel locks (boots) on illegally parked vehicles for which there are 3 or more outstanding, unpaid, and overdue parking tickets. The operator of such a vehicle is known as a scofflaw.

We do not have a set time of day for each street. Daily routes start at 7:00 a.m. and trash carts should be out at that time. Even if it seems the truck comes by at the same time of day, occasionally issues develop that cause a shift in schedules.
A new employee or route alteration may have missed you by accident.
Trash carts that are not deemed fixable will be replaced for a fee of $80.00 per cart. The fee is added to the next water, sewer, and trash bill.
There is a one time $80.00 trash cart fee for new cart service plus the residential trash cart fee of $24.50 per month or $49.00 per billing cycle. Example: If you currently have one cart and want an additional cart, there is an initial fee of $80.00 for the additional cart. The billing cycle fee for two carts will be $98.00 instead of the $49.00 for one cart. (Billing cycle is two months.)
Public Works no longer looks for lost trash carts. They are the responsibility of the owner. Serial numbers are not tracked. It's advised that cart owners write the cart serial numbers down for their records or write the address associated with the cart under the lid with permanent marker. Carts will be replaced for a fee of $80.00.
