As a mark of respect for the memory and longstanding service of Commissioner Owen Roberts, who lost his battle with cancer on July 21, Chairman David T. Smith of the Granville County Board of Commissioners has issued a proclamation ordering flags of the United States, North Carolina and Granville County to be flown at half-staff at all County buildings and grounds.
Representing District 5, Comm. Roberts was sworn into office in December of 2016 and served on several committees, which included the Board of Equalization and Review, the Juvenile Crime Prevention Council and the Upper Neuse River Basin Committee. He also served as Planning Board Liaison, Solid Waste Liaison and Liaison to the Veterans Affairs Committee, as well as being an Ex-Officio member of the Granville Health System Board of Trustees.
Flags are to be flown at half-staff until Comm. Roberts’ interment. Funeral services were pending at the time of this proclamation.
