[Note from the Editor: If you appreciate being able to read information from county meetings for free on Pike County Times, please make a donation to Pike County Times through the PayPal link at the bottom of the page or by check to Pike County Times at PO Box 843, Zebulon so I can justify the amount of time that I am spending away from family. It may not seem like much but sitting in a meeting and then typing it up takes a lot more time than you might imagine! (And these 8 a.m. meetings when I'm normally up working till 11 p.m. or so ain't no joke! LOL!) Thanks for reading Pike County's only FREE newspaper.]
