The Gate Keeper: Damn these ignant racist white boys will say anything. So do anyone think this was a slip up?

Princeville NC: Board Agrees To Personnel Policy Amendment – Tar River Times

The Gate Keeper’s response: This is an interesting read especially towards the end of this article. I have not been keeping up with Princeville but people have been asking me things. I began on Monday night with my mission to start back attending meetings across the county. Rev. Roosevelt Higgs made it clear that Commissioner Glenda Knight was the interim town manager. I was also told about when the recent town manager was fired about she supposedly deleted information off the computer. Time for me to begin researching some of these things. What I do know is that recently I heard Rev. Roosevelt Higgs on Commissioner Mayor Pro-tem town manager had Higgs on her Saturday morning talk show and he talked negative about Princeville basically the whole 30 minutes. Why did she allow that? Why have the citizens not responded to it? I have been told by resources over the years that Higgs is living and has been living at the E. L. Robinson Center in Tarboro since shortly after the 1999 flood. But I have also heard recently about a place he calls himself staying part-time so that because he wants to be appointed to take Glenda Knight’s seat on the board. Well in order to be appointed to Princeville board Higgs will have to . . . I will report my finding soon about some information I received on Tuesday. Stay tuned!

At Princeville’s Board of Commissioners recent meeting, they agreed to an amendment to a personnel policy that included changes to a four-step process for any type of complaints involving personnel.

Town Attorney T.C. Morphis drew up the amendment that included the four-step process and shows the procedure in which an employee must take regarding complaints.
In the process that was provided, there are a certain number of calendar days that are provided for each step which begins with the informal resolution that is done prior to the employee submitting a formal grievance. If the employee isn’t happy with that outcome, they can take the next step and appeal to their supervisor, then appeal to the town manager and the final step is to appeal to the board of commissioners.
