Legislators to address commissioners on school merger Monday

Columbus County’s delegates to the state legislature will attend next week’s meeting of the Columbus County Board of Commissioners to talk about school merger.

Rep. Brenden Jones, R-Columbus, and Sen. Danny Britt, R-Robeson, have notified commissioners that they have come up with an “alternative solution” – details of which they still aren’t talking about publicly – for resolving the question of whether to merge the Columbus County Schools and Whiteville City Schools.

Both legislators plan to be at Monday’s board, which starts at 6:30 p.m., to present their alternative solution. Jones and Britt each posted comments on Facebook encouraging any citizens interested in the merger issue to attend next week’s commissioners meeting.
