The Pembroke City Council will hold a budget workshop at 6 p.m. Thursday at City Hall.

Day Office
A representative from 1st District Congressman Jack Kingston’s office will be in Richmond Hill for a Congressional Day Office to meet with Bryan County residents who need assistance with a federal agency.
The Day Office will be from 11 a.m. to noon Thursday in the conference room at Richmond Hill City Hall, 40 Richard Davis Drive.
“We hold these ‘day offices’ throughout the district to make it more convenient for citizens who may find it difficult to get to one of my offices,” Kingston said. “I hope residents of Bryan County will stop by and speak to Trish DePriest if they need help or just want to express their concerns.”
