Louisburg board endorses COG move
The Louisburg Town Council took exactly one vote at its very brief Monday night meeting and it was unanimous.

The board agreed to a resolution of support for the Kerr-Tar Council of Governments’ effort to receive grant funding for studying future water quality rules and regulations.

Currently, the COG helps towns and cities in its service area with water quality issues.

The COG is planning to seek a federal grant to provide a full-time staff person to provide such assistance, according to Louisburg Town Administrator Mark Warren.

In its only other action, the board agreed to move its meeting time back to 7 p.m. for its regular Oct. 21 meeting.

That will allow time for a number of officials, including North Carolina Department of Transportation District Engineer Wally Bowman, to attend and update officials on the U.S. 401 project.

Bowman and others are also to address the Franklin County commissioners later that same evening. Both meetings are open to the public.

Bowman and others have said that the new administration in Raleigh has again changed the funding rules for highway projects in the state and those changes threaten to push U.S. 401 improvements even further into the future.

Under the previous administration, right of way acquisition for “Section C” of 401 from the Franklin County line north to Royal was to begin soon with construction bids to be let in 2016.

All of that remains uncertain given the rules changes, officials are saying.
