This Week in Orange Politics: October 20-26

Early voting starts week! Don’t forget out there and let you voice be heard.

While both school boards and the Hillsborough Town Board, the County Commissioners will consider operational changes at the Community Home Trust and endorsing staff recommendations for new bus service in the central and rural parts of the county. The Carrboro Alderfolks will schedule a public hearing on the Lloyd Farm Conditional Use Permit and the Chapel Hill Town Council will review a number of development proposals.

It’s another busy week for Orange County’s elected boards. The Carrboro Alderfolks will consider joining the Bee City USA program and discuss locating agricutlural support uses in the Rural Buffer, while Chapel Hill devotes a day-long work session to the Obey Creek development. The County Commissioners will talk about upgrading 9-1-1 technology, while the Chapel Hill-Carrboro School Board will evaluate the superintendent. Both the Hillsborough and County School Boards are on break this week.

This Week in Orange Politics: September 22-28

Because of this week’s InterCity Visit to Athens, Ga., there aren’t many meetings of Orange County’s elected boards. You can follow #ICV2014 on Twitter for updates from the trip, but if you are town the Orange County School Board will meet to review student achievement. OWASA will also hold its annual meeting.
