Macon & Jackson Reach Agreement On New County Border

An eight year saga between Macon and Jackson County has finally reached a resolution as the Macon County Board of Commissioners approved a new county border. After leadership in both counties debated back and forth for the better part of the last decade, the state of North Carolina finally reached a decision solidifying the border between the two counties where Cashiers meets Highlands. The initial issue was brought up in 2013 in regard to property owners receiving services from Macon County, such as law enforcement and emergency management, but paying taxes to Jackson County, at the expense of Macon County taxpayers.
