Evening meetings have been a hot topic for the Clay County Board of Supervisors. After more than a decade of individuals bringing forth the hopes of evening board meetings, supervisors passed a motion Thursday which would guarantee five evening meetings.
During a Jan. 6 board meeting, supervisors heard a proposal from District 4 Supervisor Shelton Deanes pertaining to the implementation of evening meetings. The evening meetings, Deanes said, would better suit the public as some individuals are unable to attend regularly scheduled board meetings due to scheduling conflicts. Supervisors hold a meeting at 9 a.m. on every first Monday and Thursday, as well as the fourth Thursday, of each month.
The board, after hearing Deanesâ€™ proposal, held off further discussions on the matter until the Jan. 9 board meeting. A motion for two evening meetings, which was initiated by Deanes, was later withdrawn as the other district supervisors were not on board with the format.
