LUMBERTON — The Robeson County Board of Commissioners will receive the results of the county’s audit for fiscal year 2012-13 during its meeting on Monday. The fiscal year runs from July 1 to June 30.

Wade Greene, of W. Greene & Company, PLLC, of Whiteville, is scheduled to provide the commissioners with the annual report. Last year the county received an “unqualified” rating, the best possible.

The county during the past few years has maintained a significant fund balance. At the end of fiscal year 2011-2012 the fund balance was $31.7 million, or 28 percent, of the county’s General Fund. The state Local Government Commission recommends that a governing body maintain a minimum available fund balance of 8 percent, a sufficient amount of money to handle at leaast one month of expenses.

According to the meeting agenda, the commissioners on Monday will also:

— Hold a public hearing on a conditional-use permit being requested by Melissa N. Peterson of East Howellsville that would allow for the establishment of a used car dealership on a.98-acre tract in a Residential Agricultural District.

— Consider a proposed audit contract for the current fiscal year that began on July 1, 2013, and ends June 30.

— Consider appointments to the Transportation Coordinating Committee. There are currently two committee vacancies.

— Consider reappointing Jack T. Floyd to another four-year term on the Southeastern Economic Development Commission. Floyd has been representing Robeson County as a private sector representative on the commission.

Monday’s meeting begins at 6 p.m. in the commissioners’ room at the county administration building on North Elm Street.
