SPENCER — The Spencer town board will meet at 6 p.m. Tuesday in Town Hall for a budget workshop.

Aldermen also will discuss whether the town will request an exemption from a proposed state law that would prevent towns and cities from restricting the appearance of most residences.

The N.C. House of Representatives last month passed the bill, which is now in a senate committee. If it becomes law, the legislation would prevent local governments from enacting design or architectural rules for most single-family homes and duplexes.
