Havelock, county officials call joint meeting productive

Craven County Commissioner Lee K. Allen, who represents the Havelock area, said concerns about ongoing Tourism Development Authority funding for the Havelock Tourist and Event Center when the current agreement expires in 2017 was discussed and a solution for ongoing funding is expected to be worked out, like most of the issues discussed, "with a little give and take on both sides. I know they are impatient but the wheels of government don’t move very fast."

Dacey said the meeting was productive.

"It was exceptionally cordial, direct," he said. "I don’t think either side pulled any punches and are pleased that it appears to be productive."

Sanders said: "Quick take is it was an afternoon well spent. I think we all left with a new respect for each other."
