BURKE COUNTY BOARD OF COMMISSIONERS
NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING
ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT INCENTIVE
FEBRUARY 16, 2021 – 6:00 P.M.
Notice is hereby given that the Burke County Board of Commissioners will hold a public hearing at 6:00 p.m. (or as soon thereafter as persons may be heard) on Tuesday, February 16, 2021, in the County Board Room, Burke Co. Services Building, 110 North Green Street, Entrance E, Morganton, NC to consider an economic development incentive package for Project Parts. The City of Morganton is applying for a $130,000 Building Reuse grant which requires a $6,500 local match. Burke County and the City of Morganton are responsible for providing half of the local grant match, or $3,250 each. The Board of Commissioners believe the project will stimulate economic activity, will result in the creation of approximately 16 new jobs, help stabilize and increase the tax base and create additional revenues in the County.
For safety, attendees are required to wear face coverings and complete a COVID-19 health risk assessment before entering the meeting room. Socially distanced seating is available. If reasonable ADA accommodations are needed to participate, please contact the Clerk at 828-764-9350 at least 48 hours prior to the public hearing.
