COLUMBUS COUNTY, NC (WECT) - Larry Faison began his position as Whiteville City manager Wednesday.

Faison comes to the area after being city manager in Spring Lake for a little more than two years.

He spent his first day meeting city employees and brainstorming future ideas he has for Whiteville.

Faison plans to use many of the community's assets to the city's advantage.

"We've got a concentration of government facilities here, hospital system, medical system, school system and so forth," said Faison.  "I think those are some nice assets to play off of, as well as not too far away, a tourism draw with Lake Waccamaw."

Faison has more than 20 years of experience in local government.
