BOLIVIA, N.C. – The Brunswick County Board of Commissioners will meet for its regular meeting Monday, Nov. 16 at 6 p.m.

During the meeting, the Board will discuss naming the Brunswick County Courthouse in honor of the late Superior Court Judge Ola M. Lewis. Additionally, Health and Human Services will provide an update on the latest status and planning efforts staff are taking concerning COVID-19.

Three public hearings are also slated on the agenda (see full details below under Section VII. Public Hearing). Individuals wishing to speak during a public hearing should sign up before the meeting starts on the form at the door dedicated to public hearings.

Speakers wishing to distribute any related documents, printed comments or materials to the commissioners should deliver at least eight copies to the county clerk at least fifteen minutes before the meeting starts.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Brunswick County has limited seating in the commissioners’ chambers to allow for proper social distancing (approximately six feet between one another) and no more than 50 people are allowed in the chambers at one time.

Individuals are encouraged to follow the three Ws as the NCDHHS recommends when attending the meeting and visiting any public place. Disposable face coverings are available for meeting attendees:

  • Wear a cloth face covering when in public (Make sure both your nose and mouth are fully covered and you are able to breathe normally while wearing it)
