Tarboro NC – Town OKs $44 million, see who did not attend and who was late


Tarboro Town Council adopted its 2009-10 budget with the revenue neutral tax rate Monday night during a reconvened meeting from June 8.

  1. How is it a 6-0 vote when I was told that a absence counted as a “YES” vote? Which votes did Councilman Muhammad “miss”? All the abscences and missed votes should not be tolerated by the voters. We are not being represented each time it happens. It is bad enough when everybody shows up. Either show up or QUIT! Example: We can throw $10,000.00 up against a brick wall but can`t get underwater pool lights so our families can enjoy a dip in the pool on hot summer evenings. Instead hours are cut where we DO have pool lights. WHAT GIVES?
