NEW: BOARD OF COMMISSIONERS MEETING – LIVE STREAM

The Mitchell County Commission’s regular meetings are monthly on the first Monday at 7:00 p.m. and the Tuesday following the third Monday at 6:00 p.m. Notices of meetings are posted on the Calendar and you can see the topics of the meetings on the Agendas page.

Special Sessions

G.S. 153A-40(b) provides that the Chairman or a majority of the members of the board may call a special meeting of the Board of Commissioners at any time.  The board will meet in special sessions throughout the year as necessary.  All special sessions will meet the notification requirements as set forth in G.S. 143-318.9 – 143-318.16A, i.e., posting of written notice on the bulletin board in the Administration Building at least 48 hours before the meeting, notification of all board members at least 48 hours prior to the meeting, and notification of the local news media at least 48 hours prior to the meeting.

At a special meeting, the board may consider only those items specified in the notice, unless all board members are present or absent board members have signed a written waiver.

Emergency Sessions

G.S. 153A-40(b) allows for meetings to be called to deal with an emergency.  The only notice required is reasonable action to inform other board members and the local news media. Only business connected with the emergency may be discussed at the meeting. An emergency meeting is defined as “one called because of generally unexpected circumstances that require immediate consideration by the public body”.

Closed Sessions

G.S. 143-318.11(a) lists certain exceptions to the requirement that all meetings be open to the public and allows public bodies to consider certain subjects in closed session. The eight exceptions most likely to be used by local governments are as follows:

  • Confidential information
  • Consultations with an attorney
  • Business location or expansion
  • Real property acquisition
  • Employment contracts
  • Certain personnel matters
  • Investigations
  • School violence response plans

A closed session may be held only on a motion adopted in open session by a majority of those present and voting.  The motion must state the purpose set out in the statute that permits the closed session.

Agenda Items

All agenda items must be submitted in writing to the Clerk to the Board by 10:00 a.m. on Monday, one week prior to the regular meeting.  One copy of support documentation must also be submitted at this time.

Additions or deletions to the agenda shall be made during the Additions or Changes to the Agenda portion of the session during a regular session.

Board of Equalization and Review

Each year, the Board of Commissioners acts in the capacity of the Board of Equalization and Review. According to G.S. 105-322(e), the Board of Equalization and Review “shall hold its first meeting not earlier than the first Monday in April and not later than the first Monday in May.
