Cary, NC — Happy New Year! This will be my first journal entry of 2016.
Monday, I had my weekly one-on-one meeting with the interim town manager.
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.
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 included:
- A complaint about Cary newspapers littering streets
