County: Please Pass The Gas!

There’s a push to get natural gas to the northern areas of Wayne County.

County Manager Craig Honeycutt explained the need to the Wayne County Board of Commissioners this week, saying it would benefit economic development in places like Fremont and Pikeville.

Commissioner Ray Mayo is hopeful the county will set up a working group to help address the natural gas issue.  Mayo says the natural gas hookups would be beneficial to farmers in northern Wayne County.

On Tuesday, the Wayne County Commissioners unanimously approved a resolution supporting natural gas service to northern Wayne County. The resolution asks the State of North Carolina and Piedmont Natural Gas Company to look at the feasibility to provide northern Wayne County with natural gas.
