The Cumberland County Board of Commissioners will hold a public hearing on Monday, April 16, 2018 at 6:45 p.m. during its regularly scheduled meeting in Room 118 of the Cumberland County Courthouse, 117 Dick St., Fayetteville, N.C. The purpose of the hearing is to receive public comment on the Board’s consideration of alternate options for governance/consolidation of the County’s human service agencies. Under these options, the Board of Commissioners can consider the following:

  1. Maintaining the current governance structure with a separate Cumberland County Social Services Board and Cumberland County Board of Health.
  2. Abolishing the Cumberland County Social Services Board and/or the Cumberland County Board of Health and assuming the duties and responsibilities of one or both boards. Should this option be considered, there is a statutory requirement for the Commissioners to appoint a Health Advisory Committee.
  3. Establishing a Consolidated Human Services Agency and appointing a new Consolidated Human Services Board.
  4. Establishing a Consolidated Human Services Agency and assuming the duties and responsibilities of the Consolidated Human Services Board.

On Tuesday February 27, 2018, a representative from the UNC School of Government presented these options to the Board of Commissioners. Video of that presentation can be found at:  bit.ly/ccspecialmeeting.
