The Iredell County Board of Commissioners will consider a request to continue the county’s participation in the Lake Norman Regional Transportation Commission Tuesday night.
The board will first meet at 4 p.m. for its pre-agenda briefing followed by their regular session at 6 p.m. inside the commissioners meeting room. Both meetings are open to the public and take place at Government Center, 200 South Center Street in Statesville.
In 2016, Iredell County joined this group. The cost to participate for two years is $15,750.
Participating jurisdictions currently include Statesville, Troutman, Mooresville, Davidson and Iredell County.
According to county officials, LNTC participation gives the county “access to a base of knowledge that is solely focused on transportation, and helps achieve goals related to transportation projects.”
In other matters, the board will hear a request from Executive Director Jennifer Barraclough with the Iredell Council on Aging, Inc. She will present the Fiscal Year 2024 Home and Community Care Block Grant funding plan.
