Featured Item

2020 Real Property Revaluation Presentation

This item was originally on September’s agenda but was pushed to October. Sarah Davis of the county tax department will present a proposed schedule of values for next year’s real estate taxes. That schedule will be available online and at the county tax office after the BoC meeting. A public hearing will be held before the rates are adopted, most likely at next month’s BoC meeting, Nov. 18. Vincent Valuations of Elizabeth City is the firm recommended by County Manager Tommy Burns to complete the process.

Public Hearing

Rezoning Near Hwy 101/Laurel Rd. Intersection: A request as been made to rezone 7.8 wooded acres just south of the intersection from R-15M (single family residential) to B-1 (general business). Single family homes are adjacent to the land, and 11 out of 14 property owners raised objections to rezoning due to concerns about future commercial traffic and clearing of the land. No structures exist on the property. The owner has not indicated intended use of the land on the application materials.


Other Items

Health Department Grant: The County Health Department requests approval to apply for the NC Office of Rural Health Sustained Access to Healthcare Services Project Grant for $41,232.39 to increase generator capacity and satisfy additional emergency shelter needs.
