       Approval of the Agenda by Commissioners: After a review of the Agenda,
motion by Commissioner Jones, seconded by Commissioner Lear, to approve the
Agenda as presented. Commissioner Sims asked the location of the information on the
20-year capital plan. County Manager Lucas shared that information was not included
in the packet as this was just an opportunity for the Board to receive public comment
related to applying for a grant to do the plan. Chairman Woodburn stated that some
information was included in the March 7 Agenda. Commissioner Sims voiced that this
was a grant to hire the consultant for the work. Motion carried unanimously.

       Public Hearing-Utilities 20-year Capital Plan: Chairman Woodburn
voiced that he understands that an actual public hearing was not needed but the issue
has to be discussed in two open meetings. Chairman Woodburn voiced that this would
be the second meeting. Vance Gulledge, Utilities Administrator, explained that they
were applying for a $7500 grant through the Rural Center for the preparation of the 20-
year Capital Improvement Plan. Mr. Gulledge feels that in the next two to five years the
Commissioners will have serious decisions to make regarding water and sewer. Mr.
Gulledge shared that currently we have over one million dollars in water lines that need
to be built. Mr. Gulledge mentioned the intake project at the river, with the cost being
between four and one-half to six million dollars. Mr. Gulledge stated that work on the
alum sludge lagoon and the establishment of an off site storage basin is estimated to
cost between two and three million dollars. Mr. Gulledge shared that with the present
rates and means of financing they could not afford more than $200,000 a year in debt
service without tearing the rates apart. Mr. Gulledge shared that wastewater has
similar challenges. Commissioner Jones asked about the consultant. Mr. Gulledge
noted that Hobbs Upchurch would prepare the plan. Mr. Gulledge shared that the
Board would need to commit to a series of resolutions and programs. Mr. Gulledge
shared that the water department would contribute $800 with the grant application.
Motion by Commissioner Jones, seconded by Commissioner Streater, that the Anson
County Board of Commissioners adopts the North Carolina Rural Center Grant Project
Application with the eleven items as Resolutions and policies that we are approving
pursuant to that plan. Motion carried unanimously.

                                              APPLICATION
WHEREAS, Anson County has identified areas of need within its jurisdiction; and,

of Commerce, Division of Community Assistance, Community Development Block Grant Program to meet
the needs, which benefit low- and very low-income persons;
WHEREAS, the Citizen Participation requirements of conducting two (2) public hearings to support the

Chairman to execute the application, and all supportive documents relating to applying for this grant
project.
Approved this the 28th day of March, 2006.

       US Census Map Approval: Jan Benton, County Planner, appeared to speak to
the township lines. Ms. Benton shared that Ms. Williams would speak to the voting
districts and maps. Ms. Benton stated that she was glad the Board did not approve what
was presented at the last meeting as this gave them another opportunity to review their
work and bring back what they consider the best solution. Ms. Benton also asked Board
members to approve the new mapping policy procedure. Commissioner Sims asked
what changes occurred in terms of voters changing township lines or precinct lines. Ms.
Benton shared that Ms. Williams would speak to that issue. Commissioner Sims felt it
hard to vote on one that relates to another and not know where the voters would be. Ms.
Benton stated that the Board could change the voter map as she was just asking the
Board to approve the township. Ms. Benton stated that they took the old hand drawn
maps and tried to protect what was already in place and used suggestions from the State
in following roads and creeks. County Manager Lucas voiced that it was important to
understand that some of the descriptions that relate to election districts do follow
township boundaries. County Manager Lucas voiced that the impact had been
minimized to three voters. Commissioner Jones voiced that Ms. Benton’s map was an
entirely different piece of business from that of Ms. Williams. Commissioner Jones
voiced that he understands Ms. Benton’s map to be strictly geographical and the
elections map is not necessarily based on the geographical map. County Manager Lucas
voiced that that was correct with the exception that some of the descriptions in the
election map, which is designed differently from the township map, make reference to
township lines. Commissioner Lear asked the impact of a person moving from Morven
Township to Lilesville Township. Ms. Benton stated that the only people impacted are
those that are now in Wadesboro as it will affect the fire tax rate. Commissioner Lear
asked if it would affect what fire truck was to come to your house with Ms. Benton
answering that issues relating to fire trucks would be determined by the fire tax. Ms.
Benton shared that fire maps would be presented at a later date. Jim Kennedy, GIS
Coordinator, shared that more changes would have to be made if the lines are not
changed. Mr. Kennedy shared a map with Board members showing the new lines and
explained what happens if the changes are not approved. Rochelle Williams, Board of
Elections Supervisor, shared that three people would be coming out of District 2, with
two moving to Wadesboro 1 and one to Wadesboro 3. Ms. Williams shared that in most
cases precinct and district lines follow township lines. Ms. Williams stated that this was
really cleaning up what they started last year. Commissioner Lear asked if the three
people involved had been told of the change with Ms. Williams answering no as it has
not been approved by the Board. Ms. Williams referred to the original township lines
and noted that if they went back to the original voter registration records she could
assure the Board that two of these people were actually in the Wadesboro 1 precinct at
the time. Ms. Williams feels we are only defining what should have already been done.
Commissioner Lear asked if this was something that had to be done and if it was the
best we could get with Ms. Williams answering that she did not know how it could get
any better. Motion by Commissioner Jones, seconded by Vice Chair Sikes, that we
accept and approve the census/township mapping that has been presented to us by the
GIS Committee. After discussion, Commissioner Jones withdrew his motion. Motion

since Board members had asked for a more diverse group. Chairman Woodburn voiced
that seven names were needed for this Board and it could be done by districts. County
Manager Lucas voiced that Board members could choose someone not on the list as we
were simply trying to present a diverse inclusive list. Commissioner Lear asked if any of
those listed had been contacted and was willing to serve with County Manager Lucas
answering most likely they had not been contacted. Vice Chair Sikes asked how many
listed were already members of the Board. Commissioner Jones remarked that Frank
Richardson currently serves on this Board from his District and while he is a fine citizen
and worthy to serve on any board, feels that since he serves on the ABC Board and the
Mental Health Board he is not eligible to be appointed and nominated Ross Hendley.
Commissioner Lear nominated Aaron Hinson. Commissioner Sims asked for a list of
those already serving on this Board. County Manager Lucas stated that James Crider
was currently serving. County Manager Lucas noted that the list was in the last month’s
packet and left the room to obtain a copy. Commissioner Jones asked how you
determined between the regulars and the alternates with County Manager Lucas stating
that the Board decides. Chairman Woodburn asked how the terms work with County
Manager Lucas feeling this was a yearly appointment. County Manager Lucas stated
that appointments need to be made this month as the Board needs to start meeting.
Commissioner Streater asked if we know these people would be willing to serve with
Chairman Woodburn feeling they would have to be contacted. Commissioner Streater
nominated Theodore Carr. Chairman Woodburn nominated Robert Robinson.
Commissioner Streater then offered that if Mr. Carr was unable to serve to contact
Gracie Wright. Vice Chair Sikes nominated Bobby McCollum. County Manager Lucas
read the list of those currently serving as James Crider, Robert (Shorty) Tyson, Gracie
Ratliff, Haskell Tarlton, Aaron Hinson, and alternates Buck Wheless and Becky
Westbrook. Commissioner Sims voiced that if he could have more than one
appointment he would nominate Haskell Tarlton and Becky Westbrook. Commissioner
Lear voiced that he could also give more names and felt Weaver Thomas would be an
excellent choice. Commissioner Sims then nominated Haskell Tarlton since he was
already serving on the Board. Chairman Woodburn voiced the names submitted were
Ross Hendley, Aaron Hinson, Becky Westbrook, Theodore Carr, Robert Robinson,
Bobby McCollum, Weaver Thomas and Haskell Tarlton and these could be canvassed to
see if they will serve. Motion by Commissioner Jones, seconded by Commissioner
Lear, to approve the names as submitted for the Board of Equalization and Review.
Commissioner Sims voiced that Commissioner Smith did not have input in this and he
was the main one concerned about the Board. Chairman Woodburn feels his issue was
addressed with Commissioner Lear feeling this was a diverse committee. Motion
carried unanimously.

      EMS Advisory Board – Districts 5, 6 & 7: Chairman Woodburn stated that
he had been unable to contact this person to see if she would serve but offered Barbara
Kersey. Commissioner Jones nominated Neil Jones. Chairman Woodburn stated that
Commissioner Smith could make his recommendation when he’s available. Motion by
Commissioner Streater, seconded by Commissioner Lear, to approve the two names as
submitted. Motion carried unanimously.

Woodburn answering it was next Tuesday. Commissioner Streater voiced that he has a
test scheduled for 4:00 next Tuesday and asked if there was anyway to reschedule.
