Wake County commissioners will meet Monday for the first time since some of the commissioners called out their fellow board members.
They expressed concerns about those members’ plans to attend a campaign event that they said looks like “pay-to-play.”
In November, commissioners voted to convert the Old Crooked Creek Golf Course near Fuquay-Varina into a park.
It’ll cost about $23 million.
Supporters of the project are planning a meet-and-greet this month with the commissioners who voted “yes” and all are up for re-election this year.
Commissioners Greg Ford, Jessica Holmes and James West said it is close to being unethical.
“We feel everyone should be accountable, including myself, so this is the start of the process,” West said.
“One of the parts in campaigning and citizen engagement is getting out the vote. So, we reached out to the community,” said commissioner Sig Hutchinson.
A final vote on the park could come later this spring.
The primary election is on May 8.
Three of the board members accused of “pay-to-play” make up a committee which meets at 10 a.m. Monday. The full board meets at 2 p.m.
