Currituck County commissioners voted last week to make a change in lifeguard services on the beaches of Corolla and have decided to switch providers for the first time since the service started almost a quarter-century ago.


Lighthouse Resort Services Inc. was awarded a four-year contract on Dec. 1 after submitting a lower bid than Corolla Ocean Rescue Inc., which had handled lifeguard services on the Currituck Banks since 1991.


Several members of the Board of Commissioners said the decision to make a change was a tough one, owing to the length of experience of Corolla Ocean Rescue on the beach.
