Council Denies Matthews’ Request For After Hours Access In City Hall

A Goldsboro City Council member’s request for after hours access to certain areas in City Hall is shot down. 

The discussion came up at Monday’s meeting as Councilwoman Brandi Matthews asked for her own set of keys to access the Mayor and City Manager’s external office at City Hall.

She, as well as the other council members, are only supposed to be able to access those areas during regular office hours from 8 AM – 5 PM.

Matthews stated she specifically wants to access her mail box and the conference room.

Council member Matthews said, “I do not want to go in Mayor Ham’s office and spin around in his chair.”

Councilman Bill Broadaway says he’s never had access to those areas of City Hall after 5 PM.

Council member Hiawatha Jones was among those that saw it as a potential security risk.

The Goldsboro City Council voted 2-4 and denied Councilwoman Matthew’s request for after hours access to City Hall.
