Hurricane Florence Updates
NC Legislature - Administrative Approval - At the December 7, 2021 and the March 1, 2022 Board of Commissioners meetings, State Representative Charlie Miller (12/7/21) and State Representative Frank Iler (3/1/22) presented the City of Boiling Spring Lakes with a check in the amount of $14 Million Dollars representing the funding for the dams that was approved by the State on November 19, 2021. Thank you to State Representative Miller and State Representative Iler and others for working to get the City these funds.
The City of Boiling Spring Lakes received a letter from NC Dam Safety approving our Application submitted in January 2021. This is a major milestone and another progressive step toward restoring our dams.
Note to Public: The City has received several inquiries recently as to why there have been no updates posted to the Hurricane Florence page. Per the schedule on this webpage, the City submitted plans and specifications to several state agencies for permits during the month of January 2021, most notably NC Dam Safety. Each of those agencies have notified the City that the plans have been received and that at a minimum 90-days or more will be needed for review. The City continues to respond to questions that generated by these agencies as they review the plans but in the meantime there is simply very little information to share until the permits are issued.
City staff and elected officials continue to work on the funding package with FEMA and USDA as well as federal and state elected officials.
