At its February 20, 2018 meeting, Council approved several changes to its Rules of Procedure concerning Council meetings.  The major changes are as follows:

  • Requiring citizens to sign up prior to the meeting to speak during Public Comment Period; however, if time allows at the meeting, a citizen(s) who did not sign up previously can speak during the Public Comment period.
  • If an individual has written comments, said comments are to be given to the City Clerk at the meeting.
  • Anyone wishing to be on the agenda as a “Delegation” must make such request 10 days prior to the meeting.
  • If a “Delegation” has written comments or presentation, they must be provided to the City Clerk 10 days prior to the meeting to be included in agenda packets.
  • Maximum time for a “Delegation” to speak is 10 minutes.
  • Miscellaneous administrative issues such as removing language concerning Council “work sessions”.

If anyone has any questions or needs clarification, please contact City Clerk Jenny Tippett at 291-2590.

Why buy mulch when you can get it for free? The City of Laurinburg takes the limbs that are picked up curbside and has them ground into mulch for all county residents to use. You can come get as little as a bucket full or as much as a truck load for free. If you need a truck load, we can help load it for you. Simply call 910-276-2364 to make an appointment.

We encourage you to stop by and check out our mulch pile to see if it is a material you can use for your landscaping or gardening needs. The mulch is located behind the Recycling Center at 600 Hall Street.

Help keep Laurinburg Litter free with the NCDOT’s Swat a Litterbug Program. If someone is seen littering, an individual can go online and report it. There is no penalty, but a letter is sent to the individual littering. A NC license tag number has to be provided when reporting. The link below provides detailed information on the program and how to report an individual for littering:
