Smithfield, N.C. — A Smithfield town leader will be allowed to donate his full salary as a council member to the Johnston County Council on Aging.
The Town Council voted Tuesday to pass an amendment that would allow Bill Jordan to give his salary of $2,490 to the agency.
The move comes after the town leaders cut the agency’s budget from $4,500 to $2,500 this year because of budget worries.
Jordan said he wanted to make up the difference.
