BAILEY — The town of Bailey is on track to receive a promised $5 million for sewer system repairs, state Sen. Lisa Barnes assured officials.

“Bailey has been a top priority from the get-go,” Barnes, R-Nash, told the Bailey Board of Commissioners during a special meeting Monday.

Barnes made an appearance to ease Bailey residents’ concerns. Some feared the town wouldn’t receive funding due to Barnes’ recent announcement that Spring Hope is receiving money for its water system.

Both towns’ infrastructure projects will be funded because the money is coming from separate pots, Barnes said.

Bailey’s funding is part of the Viable Utility Reserve Fund because the town is on the distressed list, while Spring Hope’s $3.7 million appropriation is part of North Carolina’s share of American Rescue Plan money.

Bailey wants the money to fix its wastewater system and secure removal from a state-imposed moratorium on new sewer hookups, while Spring Hope wants to fix its aging and recently failing water supply system.
