Goldsboro Leaders Commend Efforts During Dorian

Thanks and praise for Goldsboro’s efforts during Hurricane Dorian.

At Monday’s meeting of the Goldsboro City Council, City Manager Tim Salmon thanked the city staff and the collaboration with Wayne County during the storm.

Salmon stated the fire department responded to 19 calls during the storm, and police responded to 13 calls.

Councilman Bill Broadaway said Goldsboro was lucky to have dodged the bullet.

Councilman David Ham commended the city employees on their response during and after the storm.

While Hurricane Dorian brought high winds and heavy rain to the Goldsboro/Wayne County area late Thursday and early Friday, the damage was minimal, especially when compared to areas of Coastal Carolina.

    Also a “thank you” should go out to the Goldsboro Daily News website for providing the community information and updates on the hurricane and it’s after effects. Much better than the local news paper that requires you to go through a paywall on it’s website just to get important (sometimes life-saving) local information.
