Oakboro March Meeting

Monday, March 18, 2013 — Despite the dreary weather Oakboro had a full house of commissioners on Monday’s regular meeting, with Mayor Danny Long and Commissioner Ted Parker present after their absence for personal reasons in February.

Melissa Barrier, an educator at Oakboro Elementary School, appeared before the town council during open forum, requesting that the town donate money to the Oakboro student appreciation field day.

“In recent times the town has been instrumental in trying to support the student appreciation field day,” said Barrier.

She explained that in years past the town had donated money. However, Barrier did recognize that the town is working under budget constraints and noted that any help would be greatly appreciated.
