East Spencer will hold second hearing about water system renovation project

EAST SPENCER — A public hearing will be held tonight so residents can give their input and hear details about the rehab of the water infrastructure project.
The town plans to apply for a Community Development Block Grant to help with its water loss issues. The meeting is at 6:30 p.m. at town hall, 105 East Long St. It will be the second of two public hearings about the project. The board held the first public hearing about a week ago.
The grant is offered through N.C. Department of Environment and Natural Resources’ Division of Water Infrastructure.
The board plans to provide details about the project and will take suggestions or comments about the project.
The goal is to file an application by the Oct. 2 deadline, but first the board was required to hold two public hearings.
The board and town staff have said they hope it has as much success as the town of Garland in Sampson County, which was awarded $1.56 million in Block Grant funds to improve its sewer system. Garland has fewer than 1,000 people, and East Spencer town staff feels confident its chances are good to receive the grant.
Contact reporter Shavonne Potts at 704-797-4253.
