Meet Town Councilman Ryan Hatley

He encourages Badin residents to get involved in town affairs.
‘Snowbirds’ Winter in Badin
Like migrant birds, Wayne and Lynn Suida fly south for the winter and return north for the summer. Home is the Upper Michigan Peninsula and their second home is Badin, NC. Wayne is a retired state park manager of Tahquamenon Falls State Park in Michigan. Lynn is a retired speech therapist. They discovered Badin while visiting friends in the area and knew they had found their second home. From October through April they settle in a charming cottage on Tallassee Street where they spend mild winter days hiking on Morrow Mountain and volunteering for Better Badin and Friends of Morrow Mountain. At the end of April they return to the cool summers of the Upper Michigan Peninsula. They call it living in the best of two worlds.
Semi-Annual Town Clean-up April 11-14
During town clean-up the town collects tires and rims (if separated), appliances and old furniture, but does not collect cardboard or items accepted at the NC 740 convenience center. Items that are left on the curbside more than 7 days violate town ordinance and could lead to a citation. For a complete list of accepted items see www.badin.org.
