Beaufort County Government's General Meeting Agenda: Monday, March 10, 2014

The Beaufort County Board of County Commissioners Will Meet to Discuss the County's Business

    The Government of Beaufort County meets every month for at least one general meeting to discuss and act on the county's business. Beaufort County employs the county manager form of government which stipulates that the board of county commissioners allow the county manager to set the agenda, and bring issues before them.

    The Beaufort County Board of County Commissioners will meet to discuss a variety of issues in their general meeting on Monday, March 10, 2014. This is the ninth general meeting post-budget, when the Beaufort County Commissioners, by a vote of 4 to 3 elected to enact no meaningful cuts to the budget and shall, in time, borrow even deeper from the county's fund balance. Also, this is the first meeting since the 'Gang of Four' voted to award contracts approaching 2 million dollars to design of, and act as full consultants on the proposed jail /sheriff's office to be constructed in the southwest corner of Beaufort County.
