  • Basically, you arrive at the answer on the post through a process of elimination. No other statute requires a county to perform a local government function, although many statutes authorize counties to engage in such functions. Public enterprise laws, parks and rec. laws, collecting ad valorem taxes, etc are a few examples. For more information, the County and Municipal Government in North Carolina is a good book. Fleming Bell, one of the books editors, refers to ppgs. 12-15 when addressing the question in the post.
