GREENSBORO, N.C. — City Council voted to give the International Civil Rights Museum a $1.5 million loan in a 6-3 vote Tuesday night.

The loan will be split into two parts, and each will be paid after the museum turns over “clean” audits from the past three years.

Council members Zack Matheny, Tony Wilkins and T. Dianne Bellamy-Small voted against the loan.

City Manager Denise Turner-Roth said the loan would be taken from a fund designated  for special projects.
