Harold’s Blog: Happy New Year!

Cary, NC — Happy New Year! This will be my first journal entry of 2016.

Monday

Monday, I had my weekly one-on-one meeting with the interim town manager.

Proposal

We discussed issues related to the meetings later in the day. We also discussed the state site across from the mall and the upcoming proposal by Columbia development. Our meeting lasted less than half an hour.

Water Treatment

Later in the day, I represented Cary in a meeting of the Cary-Apex Water Treatment Facility Advisory board. The first agenda item was to consider granting an easement allowing the Town of Apex to cross jointly-owned property at the water treatment facility. This was so Apex could install electrical transmission lines. The request was approved unanimously. The committee also agreed to alternate meeting sites between Cary and Apex.

Electrical Transmission Lines

Next was a meeting of the Western Wake Partners Policy Advisory Committee to consider granting Apex an easement across jointly owned property at the Beaver Creek pump station. This was so that Apex could install electrical transmission lines. The request was approved unanimously. The committee also agreed to alternate meeting sites between Cary and Apex.

These committee meetings were my last mayoral duties of the year.

Emails from Citizens

Emails from citizens included:

  • A complaint about Cary newspapers littering streets
  • A complaint about wasted electricity at the tennis courts for Annie Jones park
  • A complaint about the uneven road on Cary Parkway (the portion in Morrisville)
  • A complaint about the inaction of Congress and the Legislature regarding global warming
  • Several Happy New Year well wishes

Next Week

Next week will be an average work week in the mayor’s office. It will include a quasi-judicial meeting, a meeting with developers, meetings with management and the Three Kings Day parade on North Academy Street.

Get in Touch

Well, that is all for this week. My next post will be on Sunday, January 10th. 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 augustanat@mindspring.com.

    Follow up in todays ‘Cincinatti Business Journal’ says St. Louis will be hardist hit by these Macy closings. That may be, but with the old Sears spot still sitting empty this isn’t going to help the situation at Cary Towne Center a bit.
