State, federal team tours Fair Bluff


A team of about a dozen state and FEMA recovery staffers toured Fair Bluff and met with city commission members Friday.
What they found was a town devastated by Hurricane Matthew flooding, which left the business district something akin to a ghost town and a number of homes abandoned due to flood damage. Fair Bluff’s population has plummeted, as have revenues from water and sewer services, threatening the town’s finances and ability to recover.
This was the first visit by the team, which it’s hoped will put Fair Bluff at the top of the list when it comes to hurricane aid.
Public input will be sought, and planners will develop a vision that could make the river a centerpiece of commerce.
