House committee substitute makes the following changes to the 2nd edition.
Amends GS 161-5(a2) to require vacancies occurring from any cause in the office of the Burke County register of deeds to be filled by appointment of a qualified individual by the board of commissioners, without being bound by the recommendation of the county executive committee of the political party of which the officer being replaced was a member (under the general provision in subsection (a1), the board of commissioners is bound by the executive committee's recommendation so long as the committee makes the recommendation within 30 days of the vacancy).
Amends GS 153A-27.1, removing Burke County from the scope of the statute, which requires vacancies of the board of commissioners be filled by appointment of a qualified person by the remaining board members but bounds the board by the recommendation of the appropriate county executive committee political party of which the the commissioner being replaced was a member so long as a recommendation is made within 30 days of the vacancy. Thereby, Burke County board of commissioner vacancies will be filled pursuant to the general provisions of GS 153A-27, which does not bind the board by the county executive committee recommendation.
Makes conforming changes to the act's long and short titles.
Summary date: Feb 18 2019 - More information
