Without its chairman, the New Hanover County Board of Commissioners will meet at 3 p.m. Thursday to set its agenda for its Oct. 1 meeting.
The county has asked residents to note the unusual time; typically, the board’s agenda-review sessions are held at 4 p.m. on the Thursday before each regular meeting.
The preliminary agenda packet is viewable at this link. Among items up for possible consideration are policy discussions that Commissioner Brian Berger has requested related to travel and expenses.
The agenda-review session will be held in the Harrell Conference Room at the New Hanover County Government Center, 230 Government Center Drive, Wilmington.
The board is currently down to four members since the resignation of Ted Davis Jr., the board’s former chairman who on Wednesday will be sworn into the N.C. General Assembly. Though he is still campaigning for election to the seat in November, Davis’s early appointment to serve N.C. House District 19 follows the resignation of fellow Republican Danny McComas.
McComas represented the district for nine terms before he resigned in early September to become chairman of the N.C. State Ports Authority Board of Directors.
The New Hanover County Republican Party is expected to make a recommendation to fill the vacant county commission seat in October, according to Chairwoman Rhonda Amoroso.

The board’s Oct. 1 meeting will be held in the historic courthouse on Third Street, downtown Wilmington, at 6 p.m.
