    By The Daily Advance,


    A story that appeared both online and in print in The Daily Advance last week incorrectly reported that the Chowan County Board of Commissioners voted May 6 to approve putting a $35 million recreation bond on the county ballot in the Nov. 5 general election. Commissioners voted to approve a 10-year master plan for the county Parks and Recreation Department during its regularly scheduled meeting on May 6. The master plan does not bind commissioners to a bond amount or to issuing a bond. While commissioners are working on a bond referendum, the actual language of the bond initiative and the amount of the bond have not been approved. Those issues are expected to be worked out in budget workshops scheduled for Monday and Tuesday, when commissioners will discuss he maximum amount for the bond and what impact the referendum would have on tax rates should voters approve it in the November general election.

    Chowan County Manager Kevin Howard said commissioners will set the amount of the bond referendum at their regular meeting scheduled for May 20. More information on other meetings about the bond referendum will be forthcoming.
