Pilot Light: Hearing on Business Incentive Back on Agenda
A public hearing on a proposed economic development incentive is back on the agenda for the Monday meeting of the Moore County Board of Commission-ers.
The hearing was continued from the Feb. 16 meeting because the private company needed more time to notify employees and associates of the expected change.
The board will consider entering into a contract with the company whereby the county will reimburse the company for costs associated with relocation and consolidation of its facility in another state to Moore County. The reimbursement cost is not to exceed $25,000.
The commissioners will convene at 4 p.m. Monday in the historic courthouse in downtown Carthage.
ARCHITECTS -- On the agenda as old business is consideration of contracts to two architectural firms to design a county office building and a public safety-detention center.
This is another item continued from a previous meeting.
The county's new animal control ordinance is less than a year old, and already the board is being asked to rescind one section of the document.
At the request of the Board of Health, the commissioners are being asked to rescind the section that regulates the resale of dogs and cats because such a law is difficult to enforce.
Also on the agenda is a proposal to ask municipal and legislative officials to provide the board with a quarterly update.
In addition to reports from municipal leaders, the board is interested in hearing from representatives of Congressman Howard Coble, U.S. Sens. Kay Hagan and Richard Burr, state House Speaker Joe Hackney, state Rep. Jamie Boles and state Sen. Harris Blake.
SCHOOL CUP -- The Moore County Planning Board will consider a conditional-use request from the Moore County Schools at a Thursday meeting in the historic courthouse in Carthage.
The planning panel will hold a public hearing on the request during its regular 6 p.m. meeting.
The school board wants to build a new school on a 25.42-acre tract located in Residential Agricultural-20 and RA-5 zoning districts.
At the same meeting, the Planning Board will also conduct a public hearing on a conditional use request by Michael Moore to place a manufactured house as an accessory dwelling unit on 31.56 acres at 527 Speight Road, West End.
COBLE -- Congressman Howard Coble was in Pinehurst Friday night for the Boy Scouts' Distinguished Citizens Dinner, at which the prestigious award was presented to former Gov. Jim Holshouser.
The program was held at Country Club of North Carolina.
Earlier in the day, Coble met with constituents with previously scheduled appointments at his office in Graham.
He also addressed the Freedomworks annual legislative meeting in Burlington Saturday morning and attended Officials Night at the Greensboro Symphony that night.
On Sunday morning he attended the worship service at Bethel Presbyterian Church in McLeansville.
Coble represents the Sixth District, which includes Moore County.
