Meeting Minutes

Meeting minutes are posted following adoption by the Board of Commissioners at a regular scheduled meeting. Every effort is made to draft the minutes as quickly as possible; however, due to other duties of staff and receipt of the meeting DVD, that is not always possible. The minutes will be drafted, approved and posted in a reasonable amount of time.
