We've seen a lot of back-and-forth between Indian Trail council members over the past few months. Tonight, folks had their first chance to respond since Jan. 14 -- the last official town council meeting that happened.

Weather, vacations and skipped meetings were what caused the time lapse.

The two biggest frustrations voiced by Indian Trail residents were council members Gordon Daniels and Gary Savoie's campaign contributions from developers trying to bring a 378-unit apartment complex into Indian Trail and the process of bringing in, or not trying to bring in, newly-sworn in council member David Drehs.

"You tried to hold the town hostage and force your agenda on the residents," Amanda Faulkenberry said during the public comment portion of the meeting.

The agenda they wanted to force? Some folks around town are saying that it's all tied together with the skipped meetings in an effort to prevent David Drehs from being sworn in. A number of residents have said they believe Daniels and Savoie wanted to get "their guy" so they could pass any agenda items they wish, with at least a 3-2 vote.

The proposed apartment complex was supposed to be on tonight's agenda, but was pushed until June. Surely, it would help boost Indian Trail's economy. Many already living in the town, however, question whether there is the appropriate infrastructure to handle it.
