Withrow declines to vote, expresses concern about $815,000 grant

Princeton Commissioner Larry Withrow, at the July 30 called board meeting, raised questions about the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) $815,000 grant and loans for a project comprised of several water and sewer projects.

While the vote by Mayor Don Rains and the board of commissioners was technically unanimous, Withrow declined to vote.

When a council or board member refuses to vote, according to Robert’s Rules of Order, it is considered a positive vote.

    I guess Commissioner Withrow would prefer to raise taxes in Princeton, or impose an assessment on Princeton residents, in order to cover the costs! Or maybe he has his own well and septic system and doesn’t need city sewer improvements.
