Greenville bond referendum delayed to 2015

Posted: Updated:
GREENVILLE, N.C. - A Greenville bond referendum to improve city roads and infrastructure was delayed to November 2015.

Dennis Mitchell, chairman of the bond advisory committee, said his committee wouldn't be able to give recommendations to the city council until January 2015, two months after the November 2014 elections.

"This committee was formed kinda late," Mitchell said. "Here we are about to be August, so to put together something real quickly, it almost had to pass last night."

Mayor Allen Thomas was vocal in his support for a bond referendum this November.

"The roads and infrastructure are an immediate priority for this city," Mayor Thomas said. "I'd like to see this addressed this year so they can be laying asphalt in 2015 and 2016."
