McDowell County Commissioners to meet Monday

The McDowell County Commissioners will hear an update about the 2019 revaluation and consider a resolution about the future of the Health Department during the regular meeting on Monday.

The commissioners will hold their regular May meeting starting at 5 p.m. Monday in the first-floor boardroom of the County Administration Building.

Starting at 5:05 p.m., county officials will recognize the SkillsUSA students and interns with the McDowell Emergency Services.

At 5:30 p.m., the commissioners will hear an update about the 2019 property revaluation. Under old business, they will hear updates about the proposed shooting range and the greenway project. They will talk about a sales tax agreement.

Under new business, the commissioners will consider a resolution about the Health Department. Polk County recently withdrew from the Rutherford-Polk-McDowell District Health Department. It will soon become known as the Foothills Health District, effective July 1. Commissioners will also consider the closing of a road for a 5K event, an independent auditor recommendation, solid waste fees, some administrative items and tax matters.

The public comment period will follow. This is the time when the public can speak to the board about any issue or item not on the agenda.

County Manager Ashley Wooten will give his report to the board.
