Tribal Council OKs $200 monthly stipend


PEMBROKE — The 21-member Lumbee Tribal Council on Thursday voted themselves stipends totaling $200 a month to cover transportation costs and time spent at meetings.

The money to pay for the stipends is not coming from U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development funds allocated annually to the tribe, according to Bill James Brewington, the tribe’s speaker said

“It is coming from the tribe’s unrestricted funds,” he said.
