Pender County Commission chair Jimmy Tate is scheduled to give his State of the County Address tonight.
He plans on addressing the situation at the Coty plant after its latest round of layoffs last month. He'll also talk about industrial development, water and sewer treatment and taxes.
Tate is expected to announce some sort of agreement between Pender County and New Hanover County.
The State of the County address begins at 5:30 p.m. at the Pender County Courthouse in Burgaw.
