The Nash County Board of Commissioners is set to discuss a monument to local civil servants among other topics Monday afternoon during a regularly called monthly workshop meeting.

The board will review a proposal for the Commemorative Courtyard Marker meant to honor civil servants in Nash County. The marker idea was introduced by former Commissioner Danny Tyson. He asked the board in March to find a way to pay respect to longtime Commissioner Billy Morgan, who died earlier this year.

County staff has been working on an honorary plaza in front of the County Administration Building in downtown Nashville. Plans call for a small vertical monument with tiles etched with the names of county officials with a long history of public service.

Commissioners are scheduled to receive a presentations from Michael Williams with Turning Point Workforce Development and Sandi Vick with Information Technology.

The board is set to establish a public hearing on the proposed allocation of $50,000 to Duke Energy to enhance electric utility services at a tract on N.C. 97.

Commissioners will also update the board on any recent activity of committees and other entities of which they are individual members.

Monday's workshop is scheduled to meet at 2:30 p.m. in the Commissioners Conference Room on the third floor of the Claude Mayo Jr. Administration Building at 120 West Washington St. in downtown Nashville. At the end of the meeting, the board will enter closed session to consult with an attorney.

The board will recess until 6 p.m. Nov. 30 when commissioners will meet with the Nash-Rocky Mount Board of Education at Nash Community College.
