The Lee County commissioners are expected to act on a resolution that would combine the Health Department and the Department of Social Services at the Monday meeting.
If approved, they will become the Lee County Consolidated Human Services Agency, according to meeting documents said.
The commissioners discussed the matter at their January retreat and had a presentation on from a representative from the N.C. School of Government.
If the action is approved, the consolidation would be effective July 1. The action would also disband the Board of Health and Department of Social Services board.
A single board, the Consolidated Human Services board, would replace the pair.
Also Monday, the commissioners are scheduled to accept a bid for a surplus property on Hall Street.

Board members are being asked to declare the lot between West Makepeace and West Rose streets as surplus property, according to documents in the agenda packet.
The county owns the property, which was foreclosed on in 1987, the documents said. The commissioners can declare the site as surplus property and authorize the sell through an upset bid process.
The property, which was foreclosed on in 1987, is valued at $14,200 while $1,226.80 is owed in taxes and fees, the release said.
Two offers have been made for purchase of the land — one for $10,000 and the second for $1,500.
The recommendation to the commissioners is to accept the higher bid. The offer will be advertised and subject to upset bids, the documents say. Once the process is completed, the commissioners will act to make the sale final.
The meeting is at the Dennis Wicker Civic Center, 1801 Nash St., and begins at 6 p.m.
