At its Strategic Planning Conference
in February, the Board of County Commissioners discussed its policy regarding Board committees. They agreed to reduce the number of standing committees to two and address future issues as a full board during budget/public policy meetings on the second and fourth Tuesday of the month. Staff revised the committee policy
and it was presented to the Board March 6. After further discussion, the Boad voted to keep the current committee set-up and asked staff to revise the formal policy. It will be presented at a future BOCC meeting.
More than a hundred property owners from Cornelius and surrounding areas packed the chamber to speak to the Board about the revaluation process. The Board waived its rules regarding the length of time speakers could address the body and allowed everyone to speak. Since the comments came during the Public Comment portion of the agenda, the Board is not allowed to take questions or respond to the speakers. Chairman Cogdell read an email from Tax Assessor Garrett Alexander
that promised another review of the procedure for valuing properties along Lake Norman. Reval.charmeck.org
