Concerned citizens group wants more involvement


Concerned Citizens Committee President Robert King is urging public involvement with the group he founded.

The group was formed six years ago in 2014.

Its objective, then, was to address and improve conditions in the southern part of Mount Olive, King said in a news release to the Tribune.

He said issues have ranged from drainage problems to a lack of cleanliness and neatness.

“I want to encourage the public to get involved with our group so we can work together in harmony with the new town leadership to improve not only the south end of Mount Olive, but also all of Mount Olive,” King said.

The group meets the third Thursday of each month, and also has a website at that details its mission statement, objectives, meeting times and updates.

“I also encourage citizens to attend the town board meetings the first Monday of each month. That way, a person can get firsthand information about what is happening and can sign up to present concerns and issues to the board in person,” he said.

“Everyone should have a positive attitude and work together to improve the whole town and make life better for everyone.”

Further information about the Concerned Citizens Committee may be obtained by contacting King at 919-920-4853, or vice president Hobert Yates at 919-988-4252.
