City, county should buy private lakes

Fresh water is a scarce resource and competition for access to it is increasing each day.

Wilson city and county leaders should join forces and purchase Silver Lake and Finches Mill. The basins should be cleaned and deepened, and strong dams constructed. This would increase our long-term water supply, help with flood control and provide recreational facilities for watersports and fishing.
