WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- The Cape Fear Public Utility Authority is cutting jobs to help trim its budget. The CFPUA laid off three people, including a project manager, an engineer and a strategic planner. It has completely eliminated 13 positions and frozen another four other positions.
The cuts will help bring the CFPUA budget down to $64 million. That's a decrease of $6 million from last year.
Despite the cuts, CFPUA General Manager Matt Jordan received an $18,000 bonus just a few months ago.
