Public forum scheduled on CFCC bond request

Cape Fear Community College wants over a $100,000,000 from the county to expand the schools facilities. Today, New Hanover County commissioners agreed to schedule a public forum on the matter. CFCC is asking the county for a $164,000,000 bond. The money would go toward adding two new buildings to the downtown campus and one to the north campus, and to handle the growing student population. If the public approves the bonds, commissioners say it would add 5 cents to the county property tax rate. That means if you have a $200,000 house, it would add $100 to your annual property tax bill. NHC Commissioner Bill Kopp said, "The first thing the voters need to understand is that anytime voters approve the issuance of bonds, they have to be paid back." A public forum is scheduled for September 2 at 6 p.m. at the New Hanover County Government Center. County commissioners have voted to put the bond referendum on the November ballot.
