The Agenda: This week in local government, Aug. 9-13

SOUTHEASTERN N.C. — It may feel impossible to keep up with local issues while they’re still being worked out.

Getting involved early on in the policy-making process can help ensure the community’s input gets heard before it’s too late to chime in.

You may not even need to attend (in person or virtually) to make sure your perspective is taken into consideration. Oftentimes, sending an email to government officials to be considered as a public comment pertaining to a particular item can put your voice into the public record.

Every Monday Port City Daily will share upcoming government meetings of interest around the tri-county region. If there’s an item of public interest, we’ll include that below the listed meeting, too.

Here’s what’s on this week’s agenda:

Monday, Aug. 9

Brunswick County Board of Education will meet for a regular meeting beginning at 6 p.m. in the West Brunswick High School cafeteria. The board is expected to make a decision on masks in schools. View the agenda.

Tuesday, Aug. 10

Pender County Board of Education will convene for a regular meeting at 6 p.m.
