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

Brunswick County to Host Regional Public Demonstration of Certified Voting Systems

09.10.2019

Bolivia, NC – The State Board of Elections will conduct two public demonstrations of newly certified voting systems in Brunswick County next week.

DATE:    Tuesday, Sept. 17, 2019

SITE:      Leland Cultural Arts Center, 1212 Magnolia Village Way, Leland

TIMES: 10–11:30 a.m. and 12–2 p.m.

Starting in 2020, all voting systems used in North Carolina must produce a paper ballot, which will serve as the official record of a voter’s selections. Direct Record Electronic (DRE) machines, which are currently used in Brunswick County, will be decertified by statute on December 1, 2019, and may not be used in any election after that date.

Prior to approving the adoption and acquisition of any new voting system by the county commissioners, the County Board of Elections must witness a demonstration of the type of voting system to be recommended, as well as one other type of certified voting system.

“We have not yet made a decision on which voting system will be the best fit for the voters of Brunswick County,” said Sara Knotts, director of the Brunswick County Board of Elections. “Following this demonstration, our board will make a recommendation to the county commissioners and proceed with a test of the recommended system during the Nov. 5 municipal election.”

These two demonstration sessions are open to the public. Vendors will present concurrently allowing attendees to rotate to each of the three vendors at given intervals.

Information about the certified voting systems that will be seen at the demonstration can be found on the State Board of Elections website.
