JACKSONVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – In response to continuing fuel shortages, Onslow County Government is further expanding fuel conservation measures to include limiting some services and adjusting some work schedules.

Library courier service will be suspended for the next two days. Mobile convenience sites will be closed through Saturday (Nine Mile and Silverdale).
Other convenience sites (Swansboro, Midway Park, Ramsey Road, Folkstone, and Verona) and the Landfill will remain open at this time.
The County has nearly 1,300 employees, and work schedule changes are being implemented over the next two days to reduce the demand for fuel as much as possible. Additional measures will be taken as fuel availability changes.
At this time, Onslow County Government expects limited fuel supplies to become available this weekend in Onslow County area gas stations, but we continue to monitor this situation.
