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.
