Goldsboro’s mayor wants to spruce up the city.
Appearing on Jeff Farrow’s morning show on Talk of the Town WGBR 1150 am and 98.3 fm this week, Mayor Chuck Allen said the city is working hard to make Goldsboro cleaner, including tearing down dozens of blighted properties. Allen also encourages owners of blighted homes and buildings to take care of their own properties. Mayor Allen says residents can also get involved in their community’s appearance by cleaning up litter or taking part in the city’s “Adopt a Road” program. Mayor Allen says citizens may notice road resurfacing projects getting underway in about a month or so as part of Goldsboro’s Infrastructure Bond Referendum approved by voters in November.
