Commissioners reject mowing invoice

Thursday, February 7, 2013 — The town of Stanfield Commissioners rejected a resident's request to be paid for mowing a right of way at their meeting Thursday night.

Stanfield resident and property owner Rick Huggins sent an invoice into the town for mowing the side of the road or portions of the side of the road on at least three roads, Pleasant, Charlotte and Concord.

Commissioner Jason Smith said the invoice was turned into the town on December 19, with the town responding to the letter by rejecting to pay for any mowing services.

On behalf of Stanfield, the commissioners rejected any responsibility to pay Huggins, citing the invoice was for "services that had not been requested or agreed upon by both parties."

  • Do White Castle prices tell us anything about the minimum wage?

    NEW YORK - Economists love hamburgers. Specifically fast-food burgers. This is partly because all right-thinking human beings love ground meat on a bun, but it's also because the sandwich makes a handy yardstick for international financial comparisons. The ingredients and labor involved in preparing a Big Mac are pretty much the same no matter where you are in the world, so by looking at how many hours of toiling it takes a worker to earn enough to purchase one, you can get a sense of how wages really stack up across countries. The Economist famously created the Big Mac index in 1986 to see which currencies were overvalued. It started as a joke. Now, as the magazine proudly notes, it's a subject of academic study.
