Here we go again, let's see how much more of our tax dollars can fund another project. An after school center will not keep kids from getting in trouble, kids will keep themselves out of trouble. I agree, let the parents and local organizations raise the money needed to build such a facility. I paid a hook up fee for county water 11 years ago and still don't have it, people all around me do. I also have been trying to get Pender County to perk my land in Burgaw for the last 15 years, can't do that either. So here I am living in Hampstead paying my taxes on a nice home with water all around me and the County does not have enough money to fund more water projects. I will not stand for a project such as this. Pender County needs to get their act together start helping those of us that help ourselves. In my travels to Burgaw, I see plenty of undeveloped land, helping people through the perking process and allowing them to build homes on their property would generate plenty of income for the county. If this issue of building a rec center comes up on the commissioners adgenda, you better beleive I will not stand for it and will fight it every step of the way.. Don't even go there.
