The Forsyth County Commission meets on the fifth floor of the Forsyth County Government Center, located at 201 N. Chestnut St. in Winston-Salem, at 6 p.m.

The agenda includes a resolution ratifying an interlocal agreement between the county and the city of Winston-Salem for grant funds to support the District Attorney’s Domestic Violence Unit, an ordinance amending regulations for transmission towers, and a resolution approving refunds by the tax assessor.

On that last item, Tax Assessor John Burgiss is recommending the county refund BB&T $58,884 because the location in question had closed and the assets were listed in error. The funds include both the county and city’s share of the errant tax proceeds. All I can say is that a $58,884 tax refund sounds pretty sweet.
