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

Information concerning postponement of Medicaid Managed Care

MEDIA RELEASE

BOLIVIA, N.C. – On Nov. 19, 2019, the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) announced the suspension of Medicaid Managed Care that was scheduled to go live Feb. 1, 2020, until further notice.

As a Medicaid beneficiary, nothing will change. The beneficiary’s primary care provider (PCP) stays the same and access to behavioral health and I/DD services will continue through the current process. The Medicaid Contact Center (888.245.0179) is available to address questions from beneficiaries and their families, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. EST.

Medicaid beneficiaries will be notified via mail when Managed Care resumes. If an individual’s Medicaid coverage period ends before Managed Care resumes, eligibility will go through the same yearly review and recertification process used today.

For questions, email Brunswick County Social Service and Public Housing Director Cathy Lytch at Catherine.Lytch@brunswickcountync.gov
