Commissioners meet Monday
At the county commissioner meeting at 5:30 p.m. Monday, a public hearing will be held on forming two new fire districts in the Howell Mill and Eagles Nest service areas.
The hearing will include expanding several other fire districts, including Jonathan Creek, Junaluska, Maggie Valley, Waynesville and Crabtree-Iron Duff to ensure every rural homeowner is inside a fire district.
In other business, the board will discuss a contract expansion with Consolidated Waste Services and several budget amendments for building projects.
The meeting is held in the courtroom of the historic courthouse and the public is welcome.
