Meeting Wrap-up: May 24, 2011 Board of Supervisors Meeting

May 25, 2011

Here it is: our very first meeting wrap-up! Below you will find the complete text of the agenda, as we posted last week. The notes in italics are what actually occured during the meeting. Additionally, we have struck through one item and placed in bold two items that were added under new business. You will also find below video of the board’s actions, placed roughly in the order that the clip contains. We apologize, but we had to keep them relatively short to make sure we could upload them to YouTube. We’ve tried to note where agenda items span two clips. Also, please note: the video portion of this project is very much in the BETA phase. We welcome your comments and suggestions, but please note: we are well aware of the issues with the audio. County Administrator Walker is particularly hard to hear, and that may have been due to mike placement. Again, we apologize, but hey–this is a first. Again, though, please–give us feedback. We also welcome feedback on the readability of the below notes. Easy to read? Confusing? Let us know. We’re here to give YOU the information you deserve as a citizen of Shenandoah County. One other qualm–we didn’t get the call to order. Yes, yes, you may think, no big deal, but we’re completists, and we’ll try not to be distracted by conversation in the future.

Meeting Summary: This was a relatively lightly attended meeting, despite the issue of redistricting having a public hearing. Kudos to redistricting committee members Tony Dorrell, the County Democratic Chair, and Jeremy McCleary, the County Republican Chair, for attending this portion of the meeting. Supervisor Ferguson was not in attendance for the actual meeting, but did make an appearance afterward. All of the agenda items that were voted on passed unanimously. As promised, we won’t comment on what we think was “newsworthy” or “important”–all of the county’s business is here for you to see. And in keeping with that, we have something you won’t find ANYWHERE else–for the time being, anyways. We’ve uploaded the complete PPEA proposal for the Edinburg School and Courthouse (read below for more details) Enjoy!
