This just arrived from Town Manager Roger Stancil:
In consultation with the Town Attorney, I have developed the following statement that we will provide the media. If you have any questions, please let me know.
“Out of respect for the process that began by the referral of the Yates Motor Company review to the Community Policing Advisory Board, and the Board’s subsequent discussion about a process they could follow, the Town staff will temporarily refrain from individual media interviews about the Yates Motor Company incident. We invite the media -- and the general public -- to use the process ultimately established by the Council and the Board. We encourage all questions to be routed through the Board. These questions and concerns will be recorded, and the responses will be provided to the entire community. This approach supports a transparent process and the desires of the Council, and the community for a full and open exchange of information on this issue.”
