The Goldsboro City Council will receive an annexation report at Monday night's council meeting.

*A request by the Brian Center for a special use permit allowing it to add 10 beds to the existing nursing and resting home facility on the east side of Wayne Memorial Drive between Ninth Street and Seventh Street.

The following structures will come before the council for condemnation:
