The county commissioners, Chapel Hill Town Council and Carrboro alderfolks will all tackle their budgets for the upcoming fiscal year this week, and the later two groups will both be talking about the Durham-Orange light rail project as well.
Elsewhere in the county, the Hillsborough town commissioners will discuss parking and food trucks, while the county school board gets an update on the family success alliance and continues discussions on its facilities assesment.
The Chapel Hill-Carrboro School Board is off this week.
Here’s the whole rundown:

The week in county politics starts tonight when the Chapel Hill Town Council will consider what to do with its vacant seat and continue Tuesday when the county commissioners review solar power development and Carrboro Alderfolks get an overview of the town’s budget for the upcoming year. Later in the week, the Chapel Hill-Carrboro School Board will consider approving several policy changes.
Both the county school board and Hillsborough Town Board will be on break this week.
Here’s the whole rundown:
CARRBORO BOARD OF ALDERPERSONS
Tonight at 7:30 at Carrboro High School is the final performance of The Mouse that Roared. It's about the nation of Grand Fenwick that invaded the US and won by capturing the Q-bomb. Originally a cold war book it reminds me of current events of the last 60 years. A theme in the book was the formation of the Tiny Twenty to ban weapons of mass destruction. Lichtenstein, Israel, Saudi Arabia, Sweden, Mexico, Iceland, Ecuador, Grand Fenwick and others form an alliance and with the threat of the Q-bomb won world peace.
This past Monday, April 27, The Chapel Hill Town Council met to discuss potentially filling its vacant seat and to hear from six residents who applied for the position.
While applicant Paul Neebe could not make it, Kevin Hicks, Adam Jones, Michael Parker, Amy Ryan and Gary Shaw each spoke to the board for about 5 minutes to explain why they should be appointed.
Two big items are the agenda this week for Orange County’s governing bodies. Tonight, the Chapel Hill Town Council will meet to discuss potentially filling its vacant seat, and on Tuesday, the county commissioners will meet with both of the county’s school boards to discuss budgets for the upcoming fiscal year and a potential bond for capital needs in 2016.

This Week in Orange Politics
Hey there. My name is Andrew Neal, and I'm the owner of Chapel Hill Comics on West Franklin Street. I've had orangepolitics.org in my RSS reader for a long time, but can't remember if I've ever posted anything here despite the fact that I have an account.
As a downtown business owner, I'm primarily interested in orangepolitics for the discussions in the Economy & Downtown category. With recent posts about the lack of recent posts here, I thought I'd throw something into the mix and see if you're interested in discussing it.
Last week, the Independent ran the following article by Joe Schwartz
