The General Assembly of North Carolina enacts:
Section 1. Section 6 of Chapter 734 of the 1969 Session Laws reads as rewritten:
"Sec. 6. Out of the gross profits derived from the operation of said alcoholic beverage control stores and after the payment of all costs and operating expenses and after retaining sufficient and proper working capital, the amount thereof to be determined by the Town of Sunset Beach Board of Alcoholic Control, said board shall further expend an amount as necessary for law enforcement purposes of not less than five per cent (5%) nor more than ten per cent (10%) thereof, to be determined by quarterly audit, which amount shall supplement and not supplant the amount usually budgeted for such purposes by the Town of Sunset Beach. In the expenditure of said funds, the Town Board of Alcoholic Control shall employ one or more persons as law enforcement officer or officers to be appointed by and directly responsible to the said board. The person or persons so appointed shall, after taking the oath prescribed by law for peace officers, have the same powers and authorities within Brunswick County as other peace officers. And any such person or persons so appointed, or any other peace officer while in hot pursuit of anyone found to be violating the prohibition laws of this State, shall have the right to go into any other county of the State and arrest such defendant therein so long as such hot pursuit of such person shall continue, and the common law of hot pursuit shall be applicable to said offenses and such officer or officers. Any law enforcement officer appointed by the said Board of Alcoholic Control and any other peace officer are hereby authorized, upon request of the sheriff or other lawful officer in any other county, to go into such other county and assist in suppressing a violation of the prohibition laws therein, and while so acting, shall have such powers as a peace officer as are granted to him in Brunswick County and be entitled to all the protection provided for said officer while acting in his own county.
Out of the net profits derived from the operation of said alcoholic beverage control stores, the Town of Sunset Beach Board of Alcoholic Control, shall, on a quarterly basis, pay over to the following named governing bodies, departments, boards, and agencies amounts equal to the percentages of the net profits which shall be expended by said governing bodies, departments, boards, and agencies for these purposes and none other as follows:
(a) Fifteen per cent (15%) to be given to the
Calabash Volunteer Rescue Squad, Inc.
(b) Sixty-five per cent (65%) to be retained by the
Town Board of Alcohol Control in a special fund until sufficient funds are
available from this and other sources for the construction of a new building by
the board and then this percentage of funds are to be distributed
to go to
the general fund of the Town of Sunset Beach.
(c) Twenty per cent (20%) to go to the Board of Education of Brunswick County for use at the Union Primary School, the Shallotte School, Waccamaw Primary School, and West Brunswick High School."
