Following an emotional debate during Monday’s Forsyth County Commissioners’ meeting over additional funding for CenterPoint Human Services, commissioners in Stokes County will take up the matter next week. And while Stokes County has put CenterPoint’s funding in its ’12-’13 budget, commissioners —like their counterparts in Forsyth —want more information:
Adding to the tension is county officials’ complaints about CenterPoint’s pattern of lacking transparency with its finances, its resistance to freezing salaries and rescinding salary and merit-pay increases despite asking for more taxpayer money.
Looks as though Rockingham County will have questions before they agree to help fund CenterPoint.
