Wayne County commissioners will receive their annual review of the county's finances Tuesday.

Nunn Brashear & Co. is scheduled to present the county's 2003-04 audit at the commissioners' regular meeting. Typically, the audit is presented in January, but new regulations went into effect this year and caused a slight delay.

Also Tuesday, Maj. Ray Smith of the Wayne County Sheriff's Office will update the commissioners on local use, sale and manufacture of methamphetamine, an illegal stimulant.

Smith is expected to say that the laboratories set up to make the drug pose a threat to children in the homes and firefighters and law enforcement officers who might be called to the scene.

After the briefing, the board will consider a resolution calling for tougher punishment for people convicted of making, selling or distributing methamphetamine.

The commissioners are expected to award a contract to study its sewer lines south of Goldsboro for groundwater infilitration. Two companies have bid for the work.

The board will decide whether to ask the state to take over maintenance of five roads: Edgebrook Drive, Halston Drive, Amy Court, Sutton's Run and Clay Road.

The commissioners will convene at 8 a.m. Tuesday for a briefing on the agenda. The meeting begins at 9 a.m. in the commissioners' meeting room, third floor, Wayne County Courthouse Annex, 224 E. Walnut St.
