Part 1 Honoring Senator Bob and renewing the lease for the Highlands Convenience Center

Topics covered include:

Honoring the late Senator Bob Carpenter by voting to rename the Macon County Community Facilities Building after him.

The vote to renew the lease for the Highlands Road Convenience Center.

Part 2 Workforce Solutions seeks office space

Dale West and Jim MCMahon of the North Carolina Department of Commerce's Workforce Solutions (formerly known as the NC Employment Security Commission or Unemployment Office) approach the county commissioners for assistance in obtaining office space since the state of North Carolina will no longer be paying for their current office building ($4,000 a month).

Part 3 Parker Meadows Engineering Proposals

The Macon County Commissioners consider engineering proposals for the Parker Meadows Recreation Facility.

Part 4 The SCC Master Plan

The Southwestern Community College Board of Trustees present their Master Plan for the next 25 to 30 years to the Macon County Commissioners and lock down a 19 acre tract that is currently owned by Macon County for future expansion of the community college.

Here is a better copy of the video that Dr Tomas used as part of his presentation to the Commissioners:
