WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – First-term legislator Ted Davis, Jr. (R-New Hanover) has been appointed by Gov. Pat McCrory to serve on the North Carolina-South Carolina Boundary Commission.

According to a release from the governor's office, the commission will serve several purposes:

- supervise the boundary surveys conducted by the state geodetic surveys of North Carolina and South Carolina, to locate and obtain positional data for existing state line monuments

- to re-establish, if possible, the missing state line monuments

- to establish new monuments on the state line where deemed necessary

The release continued: This is intended to protect the rights of landowners along the boundary and to clarify the jurisdictions of the bounding state and local governments. The commission consists of representatives from North Carolina and South Carolina. North Carolina law provides for the appointment of two commissioners and a surveyor to such a commission. Each member serves at the pleasure of the governor.

Robby Collins, an attorney from Wilmington, will also serve on the commission. Gov. McCrory also appointed Sen. Tommy Tucker of Union County and Andy Zoutewelle, a businessman from Mecklenberg County, to seats on the same commission.
