The People’s Business: August 12, 2019

The Winston-Salem City Council will be back in their old form this week. After taking July off, the Council eased their way back last Monday, with a City Council meeting that lasted a mere 16 minutes. With a full slate of committee meetings this week, the Council is back in business. The murder of Julius Sampson continues to be the topic that’s on everyone’s mind. The Mayor held a press conference this morning to address concerns regarding the case.

It’s August, and you know what that means? It’s time for Forsyth County to mail out property tax bills to property owners. Those bills are a good reminder of one reason why you should participate in local government-YOU ARE PAYING FOR IT (directly or indirectly). There isn’t much on the Winston-Salem City Council’s agenda this week. The same is true of the Forsyth County Commissioners’ agenda.
