Municipal Council Meetings 2/29 - 3/4

Flooding seemed to be a recurring theme in this week's council meetings.  Click the links below for the full videos.


CARRBORO

- Board authorizes nearly $70,000 in hydraulic studies to develop strategies to combat flooding.
- The town is currently developing an app to allow citizens to report flooding.
- Apparently the type of flooding the area saw during Hurricane Fran in 1996 has been upgraded from "once every 100 years" to "once every 50 years."  Yikes!

HOLLY SPRINGS

- A presentation of the Wake County Transit Plan to the town council did not receive much support from council members.
