Randolph County Board held special meeting

A brief special meeting was held by the Randolph County Board of Commissioners on the morning of Tuesday, Sept. 1. There was only one item on the agenda, a tax anticipation ordinance.

Board Chair David Holder explained that due to the fact the collection of the real estate taxes levied in 2019, which are to be paid and collected in 2020, has not begun yet, the county did not have enough funds to meet and defray all general corporate expenses and liabilities of the county.

And as they didn’t have enough to meet the payroll on this Friday, Sept. 4 (when the board’s next regular meeting is to be held), a special meeting was necessary.
