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 debra.weary@granvillecounty.org).

 

Notice of Public Hearing

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

Granville Vance Public Health Hosts Opioid Community Leadership Forum

 

 

 

On October 17, 2017, County Commissioners in both Granville and Vance Counties along with key partners in health and wellness, will host a Community Leadership Forum on Opioid Abuse. The event will bring together local elected leaders and other key partners to discuss ways to address opioid abuse in Granville and Vance Counties. The Forum is open to the public and will take place at the Vance-Granville Community College Civic Center from 2:00pm to 5:00pm. Additional sponsors include: Cardinal Innovations Healthcare, The NC Harm Reduction Coalition, Triangle North Healthcare Foundation, and Vance-Granville Community College.

 

In recent years, North Carolina has seen a spike in opioid related overdose deaths. According to data provided by the NC Department of Health and Human Services, more than 13,000 North Carolinians have died from unintentional overdose deaths since 1999. Across the United States, accidental death from Opioid overdose now exceeds accidental death from car crashes.

 

In 2015, Granville Vance Public Health (GVPH) launched Project VIBRANT (Vance Initiates Bringing Resources and Naloxone Training) in partnership with the North Carolina Harm Reduction Coalition (NCHRC) to address the increase in opioid overdose and death. Since October 2015, more than 140 successful overdose reversals were reported to the NCHRC in Vance and Granville counties, using naloxone kits distributed directly to individuals at risk of experiencing or witnessing an overdose.

 

Lisa Harrison, Health Director for GVPH and a sponsor of the Community Leadership Forum is encouraged with the success of Project VIBRANT but knows that more work needs to be done. “We hope that this Forum is a first step in educating community leaders and the public about the opioid crisis and what resources are available to family members and their loved ones suffering with addiction. These drugs are inherently risky and many people begin their use of opioids with a prescription from a doctor for a very valid health-related and pain-management reason.”

 

The Granville Vance County Community Leadership Forum on Opioid Abuse is part of a Presidential Initiative established by the President of the North Carolina Association of County Commissioners (NCACC) and Davidson County Commissioner, Fred McClure. NCACC is supporting the effort by providing planning materials and technical assistance to enable each county to hold their own forum. The materials are available online at www.ncacc.org/opioidforum.

 

About the NCACC: The North Carolina Association of County Commissioners (NCACC) is the official voice of all 100 counties on issues being considered by the General Assembly, Congress and federal and state agencies. The Association provides expertise to counties in the areas of advocacy, research, risk management and education and leadership training.
