Well kinda—-the High Point City Council approved a resolution—- as opposed to a memorandum of understanding, at which the council balked the last time it discussed the college scholarship and educational resource program for Guilford County Schools students.

Councilman Latimer Alexander questioned whether the city would eventually be expected to fund the Say Yes program over and above what it already provides for parks and recreation and library services.

Alexander asked whether the city should treat Say Yes like other nonprofits that request funding from council each year.

“There’s no financial ask in here,” said Mayor Bill Bencini, pointing out that the resolution gives council ultimate authority over any Say Yes expenditures.

“We can say no all we want to down the road. Right now, we need to say yes,” said Bencini.

Still holding out — the evil hard-hearted Republican majority Guilford County Board of Commissioners.
