Important end to the story...

Mike McGill from CFPUA here...

This is the reminder of the story. CFPUA is not paying the fine.


The fine will be covered by $1.9 million Wilmington set aside in 2008 – before the formation of the authority – to cover any federal penalties tied to the spills. This money will be given to CFPUA to use and the rest of the funds will be counted as revenue for the authority.

The Wilmington City Council approved the agreement Tuesday and the New Hanover County Commissioners are expected to take up the issue at their June 3 meeting.
