Summary:  The NCDOT met on February 7, 2019 and reviewed recommended changes to the policy in reference to honoring fallen municipal officers and other first responders.  NCDOT voted to change the policy allowing for honoring fallen municipal police officers.  Our original application was made in October 2017 and since that time we have made records of the incident available for review, met with community members from all parts of town, and made ourselves available for discussion to anyone desiring to learn more.  Citizens have overwhelmingly supported this endeavor and said the action is long overdue.  The department has resubmitted our application to NCDOT requesting the naming of the Griffith Street overpass of I-77 in honor of Officer Mark Swaney, killed in the line of duty on December 25, 1997.  The Board of Commissioners and Mayor unanimously passed Resolution 2019-01 in support of this effort.
