The Board discussed each item on the agenda and made no changes; one item was added to the Agenda later in the meeting.

They also requested permission to meet with various departments’ personnel to promote the Unity Run and the contributions to the new year United Way campaign.

County Attorney Smith discussed the amendment to the Purchasing Policy that the Board had previously discussed regarding the Local Bidder Preference section. Following discussion, there was a consensus of the Board to add this item to the Agenda for a first reading.

County Attorney Smith discussed with the Board a request from the Sheriff’s Department to amend the Speed Detection ordinance to add three roads. The cost of an engineering and traffic study report from an engineer that is certified in speed detection for the requested roads would be about $5,250 and the Sheriff Department does not have money in the budget to cover this cost. In order to start the process of amending the ordinance, his engineering and traffic study report has to be done.
