An open house in the newly-expanded Fair Bluff Town Hall/Police Department will be held Saturday, March 30 from 2-4 p.m.
The town had been operating out of the former BB&T building since its previous town hall was destroyed by Hurricane Matthew more than two years ago, and a combination of state grants enabled a large expansion of the building.
While the former bank space has served as both the town hall and police department, the new expansion permits both town administrative functions and police department operations to operate more efficiently and in a less cramped manner. Officials expect the new facilities to be much more convenient for the public and more service-oriented than the previous quarters.
The Lumber River Visitors’ Center, also destroyed in Hurricane Matthew, now will operate in the older portion of the building that previously had been home to the bank.
