Two proposed business operations go quiet


LEGGETT — Two proposed business operations in Tarboro that were in the news have disappeared from the horizon.

The first was MOSC Enterprises, LLC, a company based in Toms River, N.J., who placed a $550,000 bid on the property formerly used as the Tarboro branches of the social services and health departments, located at 3003 N. Main St.

Adrian Moscoguiri, owner of MOSC Enterprises, said he intends to use the Tarboro property primarily to provide medical services to senior citizens and veterans. “We’re going to try to put in programs that are needed in the area,” Moscoguiri said. “I’ve been active in North Carolina for the past year and trying to do something with veterans, trying to help out.”

At the time County Manager Lorenzo Carmon said Edgecombe County had deposited MOSC’s bid on the property in the bank. Since no upset bids were submitted, the sale of the property was to have become final. MOSC, originally filed with the State of New Jersey on May 23, 2012, as a domestic LLC.

Moscoguiri also said the property would be a “green” facility and that he plans to use solar energy to power the building. Moscoguiri also said he is also the owner of New Jersey-based ProSolar Solutions and Sunergy America, LLC, although the Sunergy website lists him as a “solar sales network specialist.”

Since then, there has been no status in the ownership of the property according to county records — which show it as still belonging to the county.

Moscoguiri’s name also does not show up in a search of North Carolina public records pertaining to medical services for seniors and veterans.

A second business possibility was a power company utilizing solar power to generate energy to sell to Dominion Power. That facility is proposed to be located on East Northern Boulevard — although Town Planner Josh Edmondson said he had heard nothing from the company since sending them copies of the town ordinances, which had been recently passed at the time the firm ran a public notice in The Daily Southerner.

“Not another word,” Edmondson said Monday night. The firm had not contacted Edmondson in advance of the public notice and he generated the contact to make the company aware the town had solar power generation specific ordinances.
