LUMBERTON — The Robeson County Board of Commissioners will consider a contract for the development of a county employee classification and compensation study when it meets on Tuesday.

The board is meeting on Tuesday instead of Monday because of Labor Day. The meeting begins at 6 p.m. in the commissioners’ room of the county administration building on North Elm Street.

The commissioners are considering entering into a contract with Springsted Inc., a national company with an office in Richmond, Va., According to the company’s mission statement, it “provides high-quality, independent financial and management advisory services to public and non-profit organizations.” The company also says in its mission statement that it works with the public and non-profit organizations in the “long-term process of building their communities on a fiscally sound and well-managed basis.”

According to Springsted, it would complete the employee classification and compensation study within 120 to 135 days for a cost not to exceed $35,100.

The contract will be considered during the Personnel Committee report presented by Commissioner Roger Oxendine, the committee’s chairman.

In other business, the commissioners on Tuesday will:

— Hold a public hearing to determine if county incentives should be offered to a business considering locating in Robeson County. The business, code named Project Cardinal, is expected to invest $19 million in equipment and machinery. It would also create 64 jobs that would pay an average of $12 an hour plus benefits.

— Receive the County Partnership Award from the N.C. Cooperative Extension Service Foundation. The award will be presented by Cathy Graham, executive director of Robeson County’s Cooperative Extension office.
