The County Commissioners have placed this matter on their Agenda for 9 and 23 May, 10 am, Commissioners Chambers at 440 Third Street. Two readings, and a favorable vote scheduled for these dates - or no action by June 7 - are necessary for the provisions to pass. The Commissioners will also hear comment at their meeting on 2 May.
