CAROLINA BEACH, NC (WECT) - The town of Carolina Beach is going to put its pier properties on the market.
Town officials say this is just a market assessment to see how much money the properties can sell for.
It doesn't mean the pier project is dead because the town can still take the properties off the market.
"If we get a good offer the council will have to consider that," said Tim Owens, town manager. "The other alternative would be to move forward on the park as we decided to do. It's really about whether we get a good price or not."
They're hoping a strong bid will help them with their debt.
The town is in the initial stages of listing the properties.
