The board decided to leave the fair board seat vacant at this time in an effort to reduce the board to five members.
The board directed the county clerk to write to Kay Peterson and Victoria Springer regarding continuing to serve on the Certified Local Government Board, and postponed any more appointments to the board until its by-laws have been amended.
It was moved by Commissioner Cramer and seconded by Commissioner Linn to postpone any appointments to the Joint Lodging Tax Board, due to a letter from the board's chairman, John Godfrey, requesting that the size of the board be reduced from nine to five members. The motion carried and Godfrey's letter of request was referred to the county Attorney to prepare the amendment to the Joint Powers Agreement.
Frank James, fairgrounds manager, reported on his radio, location of the modular home and discussed RV storage.
