Countyís financial audit to be heard Monday
SALISBURY ó Rowan County commissioners will hear a presentation Monday of the countyís financial audit for fiscal year 2011 by Martin Starnes and Associates.
The Rowan County Board of Commissioners will meet at 3 p.m. Monday on the second floor of the J. Newton Cohen Sr. Rowan County Administration Building.
In addition, the board will discuss requests of staff made by Commissioner Jon Barber.
At a December 2006 board meeting, Barber suggested that all county issue-related meetings between individual commissioners and county staff or department heads be attended by the county manager.
At the time, Barber suggested that the manager email any information provided or action taken to commissioners not present at those meetings.
He also said commissioners should request information and meetings through the manager instead of department heads or other employees.
Also Monday, commissioners plan to:
Consider dates for a 2012 planning work session.
Approve the purchase of flash upgrades for existing mobile radios from Motorola, at a discounted cost of about $250,000, as part of the countyís emergency communications project.
Approve revisions to Rowan Transit System bylaws to correct references to the now-dissolved Senior Services Department.
Approve personal and blanket bonds for Rowan County officials.
Establish a meeting schedule for 2012.
Consider holding a second meeting in December.
Consider several budget amendments and board appointments.
