GRANITE QUARRY — The Granite Quarry Board of Aldermen is expected to discuss Monday night an incentives package for a new industrial park being developed on county land next to the Gildan plant.

Aldermen meet for their regularly scheduled meeting at 7 p.m. Monday at Town Hall, but they will have a couple of public hearings before then.

At 3 p.m., the Granite Quarry board and the Rowan County Board of Commissioners will have a joint public hearing on the proposed Granite Quarry Industrial Park, which will be developed on a roughly 30-acre site along the new Chamandy Drive. The site lies within the town limits.

The 3 p.m. public hearing will be held at the Rowan County Administration Building, 130 W. Innes St.

At 6:45 p.m., aldermen will hold a public hearing at Town Hall on proposed text amendment changes to the Unified Development Ordinances. The changes relate to sidewalks, curb and gutter, driveways, entrance markers and medians.

In other business Monday night, aldermen plan a closed session to consider a purchase offer for town property at 316 S. Main St.

In other business, aldermen will:

• Consider a contract with Nobility IT Solutions for monthly computer, server and email maintenance for town departments.

• Consider a deductible policy for employees’ health insurance.

• Consider appointment of a personnel policy committee.

• Discuss traffic calming measures in subdivisions.
