Indian Cultural Center.Commissioner Roger Oxendine said on Friday that he has doubts that the commissioners will look favorably on the request at this time.“We have a tight budget,” Oxendine said. “I know one thing. Nothing will be done until at least the end of this budget year.”The current budget year ends June 30.The tribe recently agreed to pay $351,000 for the 386 acres between Pembroke and Maxton on which the center is located.
