Here's an enlightening idea for local downtowns

Driving through downtown Louisburg one recent morning before dawn, I caught of glimpse of what the future of downtowns in small communities could look like, especially in places like Louisburg and Franklinton.

And, to be honest, I still do.

Dear editor:
In 1994, the town of Bunn faced the prospect of having its municipal charter revoked by the North Carolina Legislature.
The N. C. League of Municipalities had notified town officials it would recommend such action after noting deficits in leadership, management and orderly process in town government.
