When Lake Lure Town Council meets at 7 p.m. today, the board will look at adopting two ordinances at the close of two public hearings.

One public hearing will address the definition and regulations related to portable signs and sandwich board signs. The public hearing will address the Lake Structure Appeals Board regarding modifying the procedures for processing matters to be brought before the board.

After the public hearing and possible adoption, council will receive staff reports.

The board will  also accept a memorandum from the Zoning and Planning Board of a proposed concession agreement with Lake Lure Tours submitted by board chair Thomas McKay.

Only two items of new business are on the agenda, including a request from the 1927 Lake Lure Inn and Spa concerning gazebo bookings for 2015.

The board will also consider extending an agreement with the North Carolina State Employees Credit Union to lease ATM space.
