County officials meet in public sessions

June 1, 2011

Catawba County Commissioners met Tuesday in public sessions to iron out a 2011-12 budget.

Catawba County officials are considering eliminating fire alarm mutual aid funding to the 14 fire departments in the county. The funding, about $2,400 to each department annually, has been around for 40 years and has "no history," said County Manager Tom Lundy.

A public hearing is scheduled for June 2 at 7 p.m. in the 1924 Courthouse. The public is invited to attend.
