County Administrator King discussed the proposed strategic planning meeting/retreat that is currently being planned for the Board. Administrator King commented that County Clerk Berry had been working on the proposed venue for the meeting and he asked the County Clerk to fill in the Board on information she had gathered. County Clerk Berry informed the Board that April 22-23, the date originally planned, was not available at Brasstown Resort. Other venues were Barnsley Gardens in Adairsville and the Brown Center in Cartersville, only the Brown Center was available for the April 22-23 date. However, Brasstown, Barnsley and Brown were all available for April 2, 2016. There was a consensus of the Board to reserve Brasstown for April 2 if still available, and second choice was Brown for April 2.
