Smooth meeting, but tax rate still draws questions


By Clint Parker

Weaverville – The Monday evening (May 15) town council meeting went pretty smoothly as council breezed through the agenda with little to no discussion for the most part.

The council approved the minutes from the April 11 budget meeting and the last town council meeting. They recognized several town employees including Fire Chief Ted Williams for completing a course at the School of Government in administration and Police Chief Greg Stephens and Officer Michele Cagle for their swift handling of a bank robbery (see story at right).

In a statement to the Tribune Stephens said, “As chief of police I am very fortunate to work with a wonderful and caring group of people. Senior Officer Cagle (see pictures) sets a great example with the commitment she gives this town every single day. On this particular day we had a suspect decide he wanted to affect the lives of some good people who were just doing their jobs. Senior Officer Michele Cagle did an amazing job capturing this suspect in just a matter of minutes. Putting a stop to his plans of disrupting good people going about their workday. Cagle (and others) put their lives on the line and this day was no exception! I’m very proud she is here at Weaverville Police serving our citizens.”

The council then approved the consent agenda, which included the monthly tax report, an ordinance for the road closure for part of Main Street for the “Music on Main” event, budget amendment for the town match funds of $18,618 on some fire department equipment. Read more...
