North Carolina’s new state budget includes $3.7 million for Spring Hope’s water and sewer infrastructure.

The money is the result of bipartisan work by state Rep. James Gailliard, a Democrat, and state Sen. Lisa Barnes, a Republican. Both represent Spring Hope in the N.C. General Assembly.

“Now that the governor has signed the budget into law, I am thrilled the town can use the $3.7 million to begin critical repairs to its aging water system,” Barnes said. “Soon, water main breaks and crumbling infrastructure will be a thing of the past. I look forward to working with the council to make additional improvements for its citizens and be prepared for future growth.”

Mayor-elect Kyle Pritchard thanked both legislators for their effort. Pritchard said the funding is a perfect example of what can be accomplished when people pull together for a common goal.

“With Tony Jeffreys leading the new infrastructure committee operating out of the mayor’s office, our town can finally start putting together a plan, with goals, timelines and tasks to heal our infrastructure and fix our water problems,” Pritchard said.

Jefferys, a town commissioner-elect, has decades of experience in civil construction.

“We look forward to keeping the community updated as progress is made,” Pritchard said.
