…Who marched to the Melvin Municipal Building to protest the Greensboro City Council vote on Gate City’s contract to run the White Street landfill?

‘Ignite Greensboro’—who organized the march —- was set to receive funding from Greensboro’s $5 million Department of Energy grant.

Assistant City Manager Denise Turner-Roth expressed concern that “Ignite would engage in outreach of BetterBuildings while engaging in advocacy efforts regarding the landfill.”

As a result, Roth removed Ignite from the “consortium of groups headed by NC A&T University Assistant Professor Robert Powell proposing to contract with the city.”

The consortium’s proposed contract was for $214,000. The City Council unanimously approved the contract with no discussion. Sigh.
