Council Agenda on the Rocky Mount City’s website Item 13 was for approval to send out Requests for Proposals (RFPs) for financing for the Downtown Community Facility. It does NOT authorize moving forward with the project.
So why do Whig-TV and the Community Council continue to send out information attempting to mislead folk about what the city is doing at different times during the process. There is a need to vote during stages of the process. It appears that 6 of the 7 councilmembers support the center and they are waiting diligently for the city staff to do all the homework needed to make it happen. Check out the 2 pages and see what they are saying.
The vote tonight was unanimous however W.B. Bullock did not vote.
I understand that only one person showed up and spoke against this item tonight. I understand that Mr. Tom Betts who was originally against the DCF at the start but has been supporting the project for sometime now.
Don’t get caught up in the misleading information being presented so check out all the sources me included when you see information being spread about what is going on as it relates to the DCF. If I am incorrect on my information, I will make necessary corrections. It is the intent of Dancy Communications The DCN News Blog Online TV to share the facts. I stand to be corrected.
