City Manager Provides Update During State Of The Community (PHOTOS)

Goldsboro City Manager Tim Salmon

2019 has been a busy year for the City of Goldsboro.

City Manager Tim Salmon gave an update on the past year’s milestones for Goldsboro during the Wayne County Chamber of Commerce’s annual State of the Community on Thursday.

Salmon says the crime rate has gone down about 20% in the last three years, and he attributes that to having more officers on the beat.

When talking about economic development, Salmon noted the ongoing work on Center Street and the millions of dollars’ worth of investment in Downtown Goldsboro.

The city manager says there has been more than $83 million worth of building permits issued this year.

Salmon says the city continues working to update its aging infrastructure.

In 2019, Goldsboro completed eleven miles of pavement work on the city’s streets with another eight miles of paving planned in 2020.

The city is also rehabilitating its sewer system.

During Thursday’s State of the Community, Goldsboro Mayor Chuck Allen also appeared and spoke to the audience, suggesting residents tell their council members what they’d like to see the city undertake over the next year.

The Wayne County Chamber of Commerce holds the State of the Community annually providing residents with updates from City of Goldsboro and Wayne County leadership.

      What type of skills do you have?

    • Captain says:

      Well if you could spell correctly and use proper grammar I don’t think you would struggle finding a good job.

    • Manny Quinn says:

      Tis910….Obviously with your exemplary command of the English language, you’re well-suited for a high level management position with one of the Fortune 500 companies that we have here in the Goldsboro/Wayne County area. If I were you, I’d sit on the couch watching tv and/or playing video games until someone knocked on my door and offered me such a position. Don’t settle! Demand a top salary and all the perks that go with the job. Maybe while you’re waiting you can google “sarcasm”.
