Ask Us: Have a question about NC’s Border Belt? We’ll find the answer for you.

Maybe you’re wondering if your neighborhood will ever get a stop sign at a dangerous intersection. Or why gun violence is on the rise, or how your taxes are being spent. 

At the Border Belt Independent, which covers Bladen, Columbus, Robeson and Scotland counties, we want to hear your questions. Then we will find the answers and publish them on our website as part of our new project, “Ask Us.”
