The Lincoln County Board of Commissioners will conduct a public hearing regarding a leash law during tonightâ€™s meeting.
Commissioners will also consider both a change order for the Airlie Park utility contract and a resolution for providing electronic listings of personal property for tax purposes at tonightâ€™s meeting, among other items.
First on the agenda is the public hearing, a result of Lincoln County Animal Services receiving a request for the West Bay subdivision in Denver to be added to the countyâ€™s leash law, according to documents.
The area includes a total of 56 parcels, and a petition with 27 signatures â€” representing 30 parcels â€” has been submitted. This meets the required acceptance rate from residents within the subdivision to be included as part of the law.
Additionally, commissioners will weigh a change order request for the Airlie Park utility contract in the amount of $27,410. Part of the request is from Hydac Technology and involves the lowering of the sewer line by several feet to help reduce site costs. Hydac would provide $22,835, while the remaining costs are from items requested by the Public Works Department.
Overall, the cost of the project is roughly $391,000, with the grant amount being $482,575.
Also on the agenda, Lincoln County Manager George Wood will present a resolution for providing electronic listings and extending the time for filing electronic listings of business personal property. The North Carolina General Assembly passed a bill during the 2011 session that looks to facilitate this service.
Tax Administrator Madge Huffman, according to a memorandum she sent to Wood, recommends Tax Management Associates as the service provider â€œbased on their lead in technology, experience, success and public promotions for this service.â€
If commissioners approve the resolution with TMA, two payment plans will be offered. One is an annual service fee of $10,000, and the other option is a $14.95 charge per listing paid by the taxpayer.
Other items on tonightâ€™s agenda include:
A request for approval of a veterinarian services contract and a spay and neuter voucher program will be presented.
A resolution for amending the drug and alcohol testing policy for Transportation Lincoln County (TLC) will be considered by commissioners.
A Historic Properties Commission request will be presented.
Commissioners will consider a Pathways rent waiver, as presented by Assistant County Manager Martha Lide.
A contract with Polaris Library Systems for the purchase of a software package will be weighed by commissioners.
The finance officerâ€™s, county managerâ€™s, county commissionersâ€™, county attorneyâ€™s and register of deeds reports will be given.
The meeting begins at 6:30 p.m. at the Citizens Center and is open to the public.
