Boone: "Commissioners turn down grant Liberals erupt in â€śhissy fitâ€ť"
POSTED: MAY 14, 2013
For those of you who do not read the Record & Landmark or the Mooresville Tribune, let me provide some background information.
At the May 7 County Commissioner meeting, a $225,000 federal Community Development Block Grant to pay for home repairs for low-income persons was on the agenda. Commissioner Griffith and I voted against accepting the grant. Commissioners Johnson and Norman voted in favor. Since any action requires a majority vote, the motion to accept the grant failed (Commissioner Robertson was absent).
Just because the federal government is giving away money doesn’t mean we necessarily have to take it. Oftentimes there are good reasons both for and against accepting a grant. In this case, I concluded that because of the bureaucratic red tape involved, and because housing programs are not a function of county government, the county was better off not to entangle itself in a program that would benefit only a handful of people.
