Trying to find a company willing to bond Haywood County’s newly elected, 21-year-old tax collector turned out to be a challenge and will require additional action by the Haywood County Board of Commissioners at Monday’s board meeting. The Haywood County Board of Commissioners set the bond for Republican newcomer Sebastian Cothran at $1 million, but no company has been willing to take a chance on the UNC-Asheville student who has never owned property, or held a regular job.

A vote was need to  authorize the lowered amount.
