Downtown Boone's makeover continues.
At last night's
Council meeting, local restaurant Our Daily Bread requested permission to build
rock columns in place of the already existing wooden columns. It's all about
improving downtown's appearance, Mayor Loretta Clawson remarked. "We're
looking good downtown," she said.
Other matters approved last night included the Den-Mac LLC
Annexation, adoption of amendments to the water and sewer code for affordable
housing definitions, funding for the Jones House Centennial Celebration
interview of Macy Blevins, daughter of Dr. Jones, as well as the Watauga County
Strategic Community for Youth's request of $5,000.
The Hunger Coalition's request for $15,000 from the
2008 fiscal year budget was deferred for 30 days. The council wishes to examine
an audit that will be within the 30 days for the availability of the funds.
