Joint Statement released by Board of Education and Board of County Commissioners


JOINT STATEMENT - Board of Education & Board of County Commissioners - Bond Related


In order to keep the Citizens of Pender County updated on the progress and process for the completion of the projects to be funded by the 2014 School Bond, this Joint Statement is being released by Pender County Board of Education Chair, Karen Rouse, and Pender County Board of Commissioners Chair, David Williams. Each of our Boards authorized us to work together with the Superintendent, County Manager, and our respective Staffs to formulate a plan for the completion of the Bond projects. We are confident that a final funding schedule will be presented to both Boards in April 2015 that will permit us to construct the needed improvements in a way which results in quality buildings built in a financially responsible way. We take seriously our joint duty to provide safe, secure schools and to be good stewards of public funds for all the taxpayers of Pender County.  We will continue to keep everyone informed throughout this process.

This the 16th day of March 2015.
