The Southampton County Board of Supervisors at Monday evening’s board meeting unanimously approved the reappointment of one member of the county’s litter control council and elected another, as their respective terms expired earlier this month. Charles Hood of the Boykins-Branchville District will remain, while Ralph Anderson will replace Allen Applewhite as representative for the Capron District. Hood and Anderson will serve a three-year term.

According to Spier Edwards, mayor of Boykins and town representative to the council, the litter control council is comprised of 19 members with a purpose to generate and maintain interest in litter control and recycling, as well as promote the improvements to the environment within the county. It is divided into five subcommittees consisting of communication, education, cleanup, law enforcement and recycling.

• In other personnel matters, the supervisors are actively seeking nominations for the county’s board of zoning appeals and board of building code appeals, as the terms for their respective members will expire at the end of September. Vice Chairman Douglas Chesson of Zuni and James “Jeb” Bradshaw of Courtland are eligible to return to the board of zoning appeals, while Gary Banks of Newsoms can seek reappointment to the board of building code appeals. Nominations will be discussed at the Aug. 24 board meeting.
