Board Actions on February 7, 2013

Below is the press release dealing everything that the County Board voted on at our last meeting.

It’s worth noting that most of the action, as it were, happens in our committee meetings. The work of the committees then goes to the full board for consideration and a final vote. Virtually everything was unanimously approved, including the final and most controversial item.
