PASQUOTANK Co., N.C. - The Pasquotank County Board of Commissioners held a series of meetings Monday, May 17, with attendance restricted to the Board of Commissioners and essential staff only.

The Board of Commissioners held a budget work session at 3 p.m., a finance committee meeting at 4 p.m. and a county commissioner meeting at 6 p.m. Due to the county's state of emergency and the COVID-19 pandemic, the meeting was livestreamed on the county's Facebook page and website.

The county commissioner meeting included room for public comment. Comments were read by the clerk.

The meeting comes a day after the Pasquotank Co. chapter of the NAACP called for the Pasquotank Sheriff's Office deputies involved in the fatal shooting of Andrew Brown Jr. to be fired.

Brown was killed while deputies attempted to serve an arrest warrant against him.

We'll have more from the meeting tonight on News 3 at 11.
