See the latest information about vegetative debris collection on private roads in the unincorporated areas of the county due to Isaias >> https://www.brunswickcountync.gov/isaiasdebris

Residents on private roads in the unincorporated areas of Brunswick County need to place their vegetative debris from Hurricane Isaias in in the right-of-way of their property no later than the evening of Sunday, Aug. 30 for collection.

Click here for full details and instructions on this collection.

Crews will make one pass across the county and could arrive in any area as early as Monday. Any vegetative debris that is not on the right-of-way by Sunday evening will not be collected.

A right-of-way is generally defined as the edge of your property before the curb. If you have a sidewalk, ditch, or utility line in front of your house, make sure that your debris does not cover or restrict these areas.

This service will only include the private roads in the unincorporated areas of the county, including private roads in gated communities. The service will also collect any tree hangers or leaners in the rights-of-way.

This service will not collect or remove tree hangers or leaners that are on private property outside of a right-of-way.

Residents who need assistance to move debris or other needs following Hurricane Isaias can contact the Brunswick County VOAD for guidance and direction to organizations or services that may be able to help: 910-253-2589

Board of Commissioners Meeting FAQs

Want to know more about how the Commissioners conduct business, when they meet, or how you can participate? You’re in the right place!

 

When and where do the Commissioners meet?

The Commissioners hold their Regular Meetings on the first Monday of every month, starting at 3:00 p.m., and the third Monday of every month, starting at 6 p.m.; if either of those Mondays are a holiday, the Commissioners will meet the Tuesday immediately following. Regular Meetings begin with the Invocation, the Pledge of Allegiance, public discussion and administrative items (Closed session is held at the end of the meetings). Meetings are held in the Commissioners’ Meeting Room in the David R. Sandifer Administration Building.

Occasionally, the Commissioners will call a special meeting, to discuss matters that cannot wait until the next meeting. Notice of these meetings will be sent to the media, sent to residents on the Sunshine list, and posted on the county’s website. These meetings will be held at the time stated in the notice.

Can I come?

All of the Commissioners’ meetings are open to the public. The Commissioners may move to a conference room for a private, or Closed, Session to discuss certain confidential matters (including discussing certain personnel matters or discussing pending legal matters with the County Attorney). However, all action (voting) is taken in open session. You are welcome to attend any meeting, and to wait until the completion of Closed Session discussions.

Can I speak/participate?

Each Regular Meeting has a public comment period, during which anyone can address the Commissioners with questions or concerns about county business. We ask that you sign in before you speak (there’s a sheet next to the agendas, near the entrance to the meeting room) so the Clerk can make sure she has the correct spelling of your name. You can view the Public Comment Policy online before the meeting. Additionally, some meetings have public hearings for specific issues. The public hearings are similar to a public comment period, but pertain to one topic. If you wish to provide a handout, please bring at least 8 copies, so we can share them with the Commissioners and county staff. If you would like to present an agenda item, there are additional requirements.

Where can I find the meeting agenda/find out what happened?

Paper agendas for the meetings are always available near the entrance to the Commissioners Meeting Room on the night of the meeting. Agendas may also be viewed online. Agendas are typically available online the Friday before the meeting.

If you would like to know what happened during a previous meeting, you may view the minutes from that meeting. Please note that minutes must be approved by the Commissioners, so they are typically not available for at least a month after the meeting. To view minutes from previous meetings; you can use the search features to look up minutes from a certain time frame, or to search for key words.
