DOBSON The Dobson Board of Commissioners will discuss seeking funding for the Prison Camp Road sewer extension project during its regular monthly meeting tonight at 6 p.m. at town hall.
The project was originally started by the N.C. Department of Transportation, but due to budget shortfalls at the state level, cutbacks have been made. The town is looking into grants that will help pay off the remaining $300,000 of the $1 million project.
The board also will hear from Todd Tucker, the president of the Surry County Economic Development Partnership. He will update the board on the economic development projects in the county.
Commissioners will consider forming a committee to hear the findings from the Idea House concerning the viability of a YMCA board in the town. The Idea House is a firm the town contracted with to do a feasibility study on bringing a YMCA to the Dobson area.
A speed limit change from 35 miles per hour to 25 mph on South White Street will be considered.
The Dobson Lions Club will present a request for sponsoring high school bands to attend the Dobson Christmas parade.
The board will consider a contract with IKON for the purchase or lease of a new printer and service agreement.
Dobson commissioners will hear from consultant Paul Hensch on grant updates and general town business will be discussed.
