A staff report

Bladenboro, NC—The Bladenboro Board of Commissioners will convene for its regular meeting on July 8, 2024, at 6:00 PM. The meeting, to be held at the Town Hall, will feature a comprehensive agenda addressing both old and new business critical to the town’s governance and development.

The agenda will commence with the customary formalities, including the meeting called to order, invocation, and the pledge of allegiance, followed by the approval of the agenda and consent agenda items such as board minutes, staff reports, check listings, and budget amendments spanning from 33 to 41. Financial matters will be underscored by the finance report.

An essential segment of the meeting will be designated for public comment, allowing residents to voice their perspectives on town matters. Moving into old business, the commissioners will deliberate on the installation of a new community sign and proposed step pay increases for the police department.

Under new business, the commissioners will address a Notice of Noncompliance from the Local Government Commission (LGC), amendments to audit contracts for fiscal years 2022-2023 and 2023-2024, an extension agreement for the OSBM grant pertaining to downtown revitalization, and updates on quarterly finances. Additionally, discussions will revolve around an amendment to a $1 capital grant and a resolution of intent to close a portion of Holly Street. A pivotal appointment to the Bladen County Hospital Foundation will also be considered.

Before concluding, the Town Administrator will present their report, and matters of interest to board members, albeit non-voting, will be discussed. The meeting will then transition into a closed session to address confidential matters in accordance with state statutes.

Residents are encouraged to attend this meeting to stay informed about local governance and participate in the democratic process shaping Bladenboro’s future.
