Wake County Board Of Commissioners To Hold Virtual Meeting On April 6
Instead of holding its regular meeting in person on Monday, April 6, the Wake County Board of Commissioners will meet virtually in accordance with the March 26 Stay-at-Home order. The board room will be closed for the meeting.
Members of the public can watch the meeting live here.
Those who would like to submit public comments may do so between 9 a.m. and 12 p.m. on Monday, April 6, via the county’s website.
“We know that things are not business-as-usual in our community,” said Wake County Board of Commissioners Chairman Greg Ford. “However, there is important county business that we must conduct to support our response during these unprecedented times. I’m grateful that we are able to meet, albeit virtually, to discuss these important matters, so we are well-positioned to move forward – together – as we navigate our future.”
Among other items of regular business, the board is expected to vote on an $8.8 million appropriation of county fund balance to defray the costs of its ongoing COVID-19 response.
The new appropriation request comes after commissioners granted $2 million in funding on March 16 toward expenses associated with our COVID-19 response. Through March 23, the estimated costs associated with that response totaled just under $1.1 million.
