The Nash County Board of Commissioners is set to discuss the sale of its Home Health and Hospice Agency among other topics Monday afternoon.

Bill Hill, the county's director of Human Services, and Erin Roberts, a partner in Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough, will present information to the board on the proposed purchase agreement for the county's Home Health assets.

The agency employs registered nurses; physical, speech and occupational therapists; medical social workers; and home health aides who visit patients at home as needed.

The board with receive a presentation by Savonia Richarson of the Spaulding Family Resource Center and Anison Kirkland, county human resources director.

The board will review the contract for Stoney Creek and Tar River Stream Debris Removal Projects with information from Valerie Harris, the director of Soil and Water Conservation.

The board will enter into closed session to consider qualifications, competence or conditions of the appointment of an individual public officer or employee.

The board 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.
