The Board of Commissioners believe the project will stimulate economic activity, will help stabilize and increase the tax base and create additional revenues in the County.  If reasonable accommodations are needed to participate, please contact the Clerk at 828-764-9350 at least 48 hours prior to the public hearing. </p><p style="text-align:justify;"> </p><p style="text-align:justify;">Kay Honeycutt Draughn</p><p style="text-align:justify;">Clerk to the Board</p></div>http://www.burkenc.org/departments/board-of-commissioners/Notice of Public Hearing - Economic Development Incentivehttps://intranet.burkenc.org/WebsiteContent/Lists/Special Notice/DispForm.aspx?ID=233https://intranet.burkenc.orglance.riddle@burkenc.org | Lance Riddle | 693A30232E777C6275726B655C6C616E63652E726964646C65 i:0#.w|burke\lance.riddle11/8/2018 1:22:30 PM01420aspxhttps://intranet.burkenc.org/WebsiteContent/Lists/Special Notice/AllItems.aspxFalse
