96 hours or so ago, Durham County was notified by the NCDOT that Southern Durham Development's attempted gift of 41 feet of right of way along NC 751 was being rejected. The gift, as SDD pres Alex Mitchell was quoted as saying, was an explicit attempt to invalidate a protest petition against a rezoning application that SDD has pending before the Board of County Commissioners. AT Monday night's BoCC hearing on the rezoning app, County Attorney Lowell Siler stated that he would need 48 hours to determine whether or not the rejection was valid.
That was 96 hours ago.
Unless he meant 48 working hours.
Maybe Siler can go to work for Priceline.com when he decides to leave the sphere of public service.
