Granville County, North Carolina — Notice of Public Hearing – 2018 Granville Health System Medical Office Building Financing
The Board of Commissioners of Granville County, North Carolina, will hold a public hearing on Monday, April 16, 2018, at 7:00 p.m. (or as soon thereafter as the matter may be heard). The purpose of the hearing is to take public comment concerning a proposed financing contract under which the County would borrow approximately $5,800,000 to carry out the construction of a 24,000 square foot medical office building (“MOB”) on land adjacent to Granville Health System’s current campus.
The hearing will be held in the Commissioners’ usual meeting room, the Auditorium of the Granville Expo and Convention Center, 4185 US Highway 15 South, Oxford, North Carolina.
The proposed financing would be secured by a lien on some or all of the property associated with the construction (including associated real estate), as well as the County and Granville Health System’s promise to repay the financing, but there would be no recourse against the County or its property (other than the pledged land and buildings) if there were a default on the financing. The County expects that the collateral for the financing will consist primarily of a 24,000 square foot medical office building.
All interested persons will be heard. The County’s plans are subject to change based on the comments received at the public hearing and the Board’s subsequent discussion and consideration. The County’s entering into the financing is also subject to obtaining approval from the North Carolina Local Government Commission.
Persons wishing to make written comments in advance of the hearing or wishing more information concerning the subject of the hearing may contact Steve McNally, Granville County Finance Officer, 141 Williamsboro Street, Oxford, NC 27565 (telephone 919/693-4182, email Steve.McNally@granvillecounty.org).

Granville County – Notice of Public Hearing – Transfer of School Property for School Improvements Financing
The Granville County Board of Commissioners will hold a public hearing on Monday, April 2, 2018, at 7:00 p.m. (or as soon thereafter as the matter may be heard). The purpose of the hearing is to take public comment concerning the proposed transfer of Butner-Stem Elementary School, including the buildings and the related real estate, to Granville County from the Granville County Board of Education to facilitate the County’s financing of improvements to Butner-Stem Elementary and other school improvements.
The hearing will be held in the auditorium of the Granville County Expo and Convention Center, located at 4185 US Hwy 15 South, Oxford, North Carolina.
The financing plan selected by the County for its school improvements project calls for the financing to be secured by a lien on the Butner-Stem Elementary school property. For the County to provide that lien to the lender, the County must own the school. This arrangement is similar to arrangements used for the financing of other Granville County school projects. The financing documents will provide for the school property to be returned to the School Board when the financing is retired and will provide for the School Board’s continued use of the property during the financing term. State law requires that there be a public hearing before the County acquires school property from the Board of Education for this purpose.
The street address for Butner-Stem Elementary School is 201 East D Street, Butner, NC 27509.
All interested persons will be heard. The Board’s plans are subject to change based on the comments received at the public hearing and the Board’s subsequent discussion and consideration. The County’s Board of Commissioners has approved the financing plan, but County’s entering into the financing is subject to obtaining approval from the North Carolina Local Government Commission.
Persons wishing to make written comments in advance of the hearing or wishing more information concerning the subject of the hearing may contact Debra Weary, Clerk to the Granville County Board of Commissioners, 141 Williamsboro Street, Oxford, NC 27565 (telephone 919/693-4761, email firstname.lastname@example.org).
All interested persons please take notice that a public hearing will be held by the Granville County Board of Commissioners pursuant to N.C.G.S. 158-7.1 on March 19, 2018 at 7:00 p.m. or shortly thereafter in the auditorium of the Granville County Expo and Convention Center, located at 4185 US Hwy 15 South, Oxford, North Carolina.
The purpose of the public hearing is to hear the views of the public on aiding and encouraging the location or expansion of industrial facilities in Granville County, specifically as follows: the relocation of a manufacturing company to Granville County. The company will invest approximately $10,275,000 and employ potentially 300 new employees. The maximum cost of the County-funded improvements will be up to $300,000 in accordance with the County’s funding policy. This project will be funded with general County operating funds. The cost to the County of the County-funded capital improvements will be offset by new tax revenues generated by the company’s capital investment in the project over a period not to exceed five years.
The public benefits to be derived from the making of these improvements include the development of industrial properties which will increase the County’s tax base to better provide for County services, and to increase employment opportunities within the County.
All interested citizens are invited and urged to attend.
Debra A. Weary, Clerk to the Granville County Board of Commissioners
