Auditor’s contract on agenda for Spencer Aldermen meeting

The Spencer Board of Aldermen will discuss a few resolutions, the contract for the town’s financial auditor and one property lien during Tuesday’s meeting.

The board meets at 7 p.m. at city hall and will:

• Consider a resolution to adopt the updated hazard mitigation plan for the county.

The plan covers a wide range of responses to a number of potential natural or man-made disasters. The county must have the plan in place to be eligible for federal and state aid. The plan was first developed in 2005 and must be updated every five years. The current plan covers Rowan and Iredell counties.
• Consider a contract for the town’s auditor, Eddie Carrick, CPA, for the current fiscal year. The contract amount, $4,750, is the same as the previous year.
• Consider a resolution of support for restoring the state’s Historic Preservation Tax Credits, which expired at the end of 2014. Salisbury Mayor Paul Woodson has asked the board to adopt the resolution. The tax credits go toward the redevelopment and reuse of historic properties. Gov. McCrory and former Salisbury mayor Susan Kluttz planned to be Salisbury today as part of their push to get the Legislature to restore the tax credits.
• Consider issuing a notice of lien for the property at 301 N. Salisbury Avenue, for work the town did to abate clogged storm drains that weren’t functioning properly. The property is owned by Agapion Properties II LLC of Greesnboro and is where the town’s Food Lion is located. The lien is for $9,506.
• Consider adopting a resolution to sell a piece of custom body armor from the Police Department to the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office for $140. The county Board of Commissioners would have to approve the purchase.
