Placeholder Image
Camden City Council voted unanimously Tuesday night to approve first reading of an ordinance that would authorize the issuance of an up to $4 million bond to pay for renovations at Rhame Arena and pitch in to the construction of a community building at Central Carolina Technical College’s proposed expanded campus. City Manager Mel Pearson spent about 20 minutes explaining how the bond will work, the two projects and answering questions, including some concerns brought up by a business owner during public forum. Pearson said staff does not believe the city will actually have to borrow the full $4 million limit.
