The two statues he quoted were: "the development, more likely than not, will not be in harmony with the area in which it is to be located or will not be in general conformity with the land use plan, thoroughfare plan or other plan officially adopted by the board of commissioners."
"We worked with the Historical Preservation Society not to have the house torn down," Crisp said. "The house had unique architectural elements that everyone wanted to preserve."
...a resident is missing, DSS works in concert with our local law enforcement partners as well as Cleveland County Emergency Management," Ellis said. "The primary goal is to make sure the resident is located quickly and is safe. We would also ensure that the resident receives medical care if applicable. We have a great working relationship with all law enforcement departments in our county and the Emergency Management staff of Cleveland County. They respond in a timely manner and work together like a well oiled machine to ensure the safety of the vulnerable elderly and disabled adults. I am blessed to have them as our partners.”"
