Cary Mayor

Harold’s Blog: Town Council Meeting, Cary Bonds and More

Cary, NC – This week was busy with several events and meetings.

Monday – Planning for the Week

Monday I attempted to contact council members to hear of questions or concerns about the agenda for Thursday’s regularly scheduled meeting. There was very little comment with one concern about the rezoning proposal at I540.

Later Monday I met with management and directors to go over the agenda. We did not have any major issues with the agenda, and I predicted the meeting would last about an hour and a half to two hours.

My last meeting on Monday was with the town manager and Mayor Pro-Tem. We discussed several issues including the permit process, the mall proposal, campaign violations, social media, the bond referendum, and the potential for buying land. Our meeting lasted about 45 minutes.
