The Apex Roundup Podcast with Lance Olive

Government >

I work to bring you relevant information about Apex, North Carolina. I want to tell you what's going on... to fill the void left by the print media... partially filled by social media... but so you can hear it from a voice that, hopefully, you've come to trust by now to give it to you straight... but in a manner you've come to expect from living in the #1 Best Place to Live in America. I want to bring you some real people stories that happen right here in Apex. Some of you may remember the Western Wake Herald, later the Apex Herald. They covered this kind of local news. Well, I see that as a lost art. So I'll be bringing this back to you, but with modern technology... namely, this podcast. Sorry I can't afford to print newspapers, but maybe this is more personal. Yeah, I think that's what I'm going for here. Lastly, I want to update you on, what some may consider the mundane, others may take it quite seriously, and still others just bring their popcorn and watch for entertainment. Yes, that's right, I'm talking about the Apex town council meetings. And as mayor, I do run the meetings, but I've noticed that there is no one out there telling you what happened... at least, not consistently, and without an angle. And, yeah, I realize as the mayor, you might be thinking, "Well, what's YOUR angle, Lance?". So let's make this clear... my commitment to you is that I'll make sure I tell you when I'm giving you my take on some development request or ordinance change or whatever. If I don't say otherwise, I'm just going to give it you straight -- part news anchor, part friend. But since I'm there at every meeting, I figure, I might as well share with you what we did. So that's where we're going on this Podcast journey. I hope you will give me a few episodes of support, feedback, constructive criticism and maybe even a bit of grace while I get this thing launched. Why do I call this The Apex Roundup Podcast? Well, my goal is to make this a 30-minute rodeo for you... every couple of weeks ... rounding up all Apex tidbits. So,

Council Update (Apex Roundup from August 1st meeting) Since my last podcast, we’ve had two different gas leaks on NC 55, one at the intersection of the Apex Peakway on the northwest of town, and the other to the southeast near the Bojangles. You’d think the lines painted on the ground by the 811 “call before you dig” service would prevent these kind of accidents, but it just seems like… if it’s going to happen, it’s going to happen. And now, the NCDOT has closed the Apex Barbecue...
