Cary, NC — This week was a holiday week, so activity in the mayor’s office was less than normal.
The Work Week
My weekly meeting with the town manager was cancelled on Monday due to his vacation.
Soul Saving Station for Every Nation
Tuesday, I provided welcome remarks at the 73rd Annual Convocation of the Soul Saving Station for Every Nation. This event was an international non-profit fellowship of congregations from nations around the world. I spoke briefly at the event and was there approximately 30 minutes.
Meeting with a Pastor
Wednesday, I met with a local pastor whose church has been in existence for about five years. We talked about how his church could be involved in the community.
Our meeting lasted about 45 minutes.
Town Council Business
Thursday, the council held a quasi-judicial hearing and decided to table the item and continue the hearing. Therefore, I am not allowed to write about it.
After the quasi-judicial hearing, the council went into closed session to do the annual reviews of the town attorney and town clerk. Cary is blessed to have such great leaders in these positions.
Friday was a work holiday for most people.
I spent the day doing chores, playing tennis and running (my idea of a good day).
4th of July Celebration
Saturday, I gave welcoming remarks at Booth amphitheater for the Fourth of July celebration. This event continues to be popular and draws people from around the country and from around the world. Two of the people in the audience, Mr. and Mrs. Inoue, traveled to Cary just for this celebration. I recognized them and had my picture made with them and with their host.
Emails from Staff
Emails this week included an inventory of available office space in Cary. There are 11 spaces available in the 10,000 to 25,000 square foot range, 7 spaces in the 25,000 to 50,000 square foot range, and no available greater than 50,000 square feet. Office space will continue to be a premium and high interest in Cary.
Emails from Citizens
Emails from citizens included a complaint about mosquitoes, a complaint about an access to a greenway and a complaint about solicitors in Windemere.
Across the Triangle
Next week’s activities will include an announcement about my intentions of running for a third term and a regularly scheduled council meeting.
Well, that is all for this week. My next post will be on Sunday, July 12th. Although I have Facebook and Twitter accounts those are not the best means of communications with me. Please send all Town of Cary questions or comments to Harold.Weinbrecht@townofcary.org and email personal comments to firstname.lastname@example.org.
