FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. — Because of higher than expected winds much earlier in the day Thursday, the city of Fayetteville has closed City Hall for the day and suspended yard waste and garbage collection.
Household garbage collection will resume on Friday; however, yard waste collection continues to be suspended until next week.
The Fayetteville Area System of Transit started operations on its normal schedule this morning and will continue until weather forces the bus system to suspend its services.
Airline Service at the Fayetteville Regional Airport has been suspended until further notice.
City employees not scheduled to work at storm related assignments are asked to follow city policy about reporting to work. City Hall closing only affects those employees who are scheduled to work from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The City of Fayetteville has opened the Smith Recreation Center, located on Seabrook Road off Langdon Street, as a special needs shelter. The opening is in conjunction with Cumberland County, which opened South View High, Mac Williams Middle, and Spring Lake Middle schools as shelters.
