General assembly approves Castle Hayne bill

The General Assembly gave its final approval Thursday to a bill that would create a new town of Castle Hayne.

The bill now goes to a people's vote.

Nearly two thousand registered voters in the proposed corporate limits will cast referendum ballots this November.

If it's approved, and certified by the Board of Elections, the town of Castle Hayne would exist.
