Boone plans special meeting Wednesday
by Staff Reports
The Boone Town Council has called a special meeting for Wednesday to discuss the ongoing dispute with Watauga County, according to a notice released Friday.
The board plans to meet in closed session at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday in the Council Chambers at 1500 Blowing Rock Road.
Citing N.C. General Statute 143-318.11(3)(a), the town said it would consult with the town attorney to "consider and give instructions concerning the handling and settlement of threatened judicial and administrative actions by the Watauga County Commission Chairman against the Town."
Town Manager Greg Young said late Friday afternoon that the town had not responded to the county's latest letter, which requested an open meeting involving both boards either April 26 or 27.
