Catawba County commissioners are expected to approve a list of legislative goals Monday they hope will restore funding, eliminate unfunded mandates and provide more flexibility to county and municipal agencies.
The legislative goals are part of a state and federal legislative agenda that commissioners approve each year. The countyâ€™s goals for the next fiscal year and upcoming summer sessions address a variety of issues aiming to keep taxes low and divert additional costs from the county and its municipalities.
â€śThere are 21 items. Itâ€™s easy if you think about it in terms of a three-legged stool. Each one of those items fit into those three areas â€” restore funding that weâ€™ve lost, we donâ€™t want any unfunded mandates, and weâ€™d like flexibility,â€ť said Assistant County Manager Dewey Harris.
