Public Hearing moved to Nov. 6

The Alexander County Commissioners’ public hearing planned Monday, Oct. 23, 2017, at Stony Point School, regarding a sewer project, has been cancelled due to a power outage at the school, according to Chairman Milton Campbell. The date has been moved to November 6, at CVCC Alexander Center.

Alexander County Commissioners will conduct the public hearing on November 6, 2017, at 6:00 PM, or as soon thereafter as the agenda will allow, at the CVCC / Alexander Center in Room 103, 345 Industrial Boulevard, Taylorsville, relative to the intention of Alexander County to apply for FY17 CDBG funding under Title I of the Housing and Community Development Act.

Alexander County intends to submit an application for a grant of approximately $894,750 in CDBG Infrastructure funds to provide Stony Point Elementary School with public sewer service.

The following is a tentative list of proposed activities and an estimated budget. The final application will be reviewed at the public hearing.

Infrastructure Improvements                 $894,750

Grant Administration                                   89,250

Estimated Budget                                      $984,000

 

The proposed project will provide benefits to students and faculty, 63% of whom are low and moderate income individuals based on surveys performed by staff from the Western Piedmont Council of Governments. No individuals will be displaced nor will any require temporary relocation assistance as a result of the proposed project.

Citizens will be given the opportunity to provide oral and written comment on the county’s past and proposed use of CDBG funds at the public hearing.  All interested citizens are encouraged to attend.

If additional information is needed, please contact Sherry Long at (828)485-4251.  Formal written complaints or comments concerning the application process that are submitted to the County prior to or following the public hearing will be responded to within ten working days by Rick French, County Manager. A copy of the completed project application will be available for public review after November 10, 2017, at the County Manager’s office.
