Meeting Highlights: 

  • Nick Bates, Fairground manager discusses adopting a new policy on fee waivers. The fairgrounds will also create bi-lingual contracts in the hope there will be fewer misunderstandings about what a contract requires. The spay/neuter clinic was a big success.

  • Pete Palmer, Planning Director, and the commissioners have a long discussion about the process the Planning Commission should be taking with regard to changes in the zone code. The Planning Commission would like to create a new document for the BOCC to consider, while the BOCC says the Planning Commission should review the comments received about the changes in the recent BOCC hearing, and make recommendations about the comments, not create a new document. If the Planning Commission wants to recommend a new document to the BOCC, there’s a different process for that. The BOCC and the Planning Commission will hold a joint meeting next Monday, May 13, at 7:00 PM to discuss this issue. This is in addition to the special meeting of the Planning Commission on Monday, May 20.

  • The County Finance Committee (the BOCC, Treasurer and Auditor) review the county’s annual report to the State Auditor and the BOCC votes to submit the report.

  • Meeting adjourned for the day at noon.
