LUMBERTON — Monday’s meeting of the Robeson County Board of Commissioners could be a short one.

The public hearings are about two rezoning requests and one request for a Conditional Use permit.

The Conditional Use permit request is from Lela Olivy Ruiz-Rosario, Whitehouse Township, District 2. Ruiz-Rosario is requesting a permit to allow the establishment of a family cemetery on a 12.77-acre tract, more or less, in a Residential Agricultural District.

Monday’s Consent Agenda includes Conforming Budget Amendments for Elections, Fleet Operations Center and Social Services. The Consent Agenda also includes two resolutions. One is “Resolution NC Department of Transportation Interstate/295.” The other is “Resolution NC Farm Act.”
