-- heard from city Parks and Recreation Director Dave Smith that the state had agreed to disregard a low appraisal for the Parks and Recreation Trust Fund application involving the city’s plans to build a recreation facility on a 47-acre tract at the end of Lewis Farm Road in the future. The move to user a higher appraisal cost allows the city to use the value of the land as a match for trust fund money to help build the facility.

-- appointed Jackie Attaway to a term on the Havelock Planning Board, and appointed Mary Eastman, Agnes Curran-Tonkin, Marlene Lynch, Sherry Hunt and Amber Lewis to terms on the Havelock Appearance Commission.
