Past Meeting 
The Carrboro Town Council met Tuesday, Sept. 20, and took the following actions on the agenda posted at https://bit.ly/3SdrC3g  

  • Authorized implementation of a compensation and classification study designed to increase town employees’ pay to more competitive levels.  A study showed that the town’s pay rates were 7.5% below similar governmental entities, contributing to vacancies across departments.  The plan will provide all employees with a 2% across-the-board pay adjustment, increase starting salaries, and make internal pay adjustments. Read the news release at https://www.townofcarrboro.org/CivicAlerts.aspx?AID=2262 
  • Authorized the Town Manager to accept two Community Climate Action Grant awards from Orange County and to enter into agreements with Orange County for grant administration.  The Town has been awarded two grants from Orange County through the Community Climate Action Grant Program in the amount of $44,300, for the installation of a green roof and a PV solar array on the west roof of the 203 S. Greensboro Project and for a part-time employee to monitor food waste collection at the Carrboro Farmers’ Market for one year.
  • Received an update on traffic calming measures, identified as an installation of a speed table and a new stop sign, for Starlite Drive.
  • Reviewed draft policies for the expenditure of American Rescue Plan Act of 2021, Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds (ARP/CSLFRF).
  • Held a work session to consider a proposed allocation list on the use of ARP/CSLFRF and provide feedback.  The proposed allocation and expenditure list is based on the work of the Town's ARPA Work Group, comprised of department directors and other staff members who reviewed the ARP/CSLFRF allowable activities and sought to align them with identified needs gained from interviews with nonprofits, BIPOC roundtables, community engagements, surveys and other means.
