Discussion resumed on the Staff Proposal that was presented on August 15th, 2000. After considering the proposal and several alternatives, it was decided to contract for the Kings Bench and Ridge Road Projects and to do the Memorial Bridge paving in-house. We would proceed with the FY2000 Grading Contract. Complementing this plan, a motion was made by Chairman Moore, second by Commissioner Hannah not to consider any further Road Projects until a future date to be decided by the BOC. Motion passed 5-0.


The roads budget was discussed next. It was agreed to move the purchase of a small pickup from next years budget to this year’s budget because capital funds were underspent.


At approximately 11:15 a.m., the meeting took up the topic of the proposed video game ordinance. Several people joined the meeting including Walter Gordon, Arch Adams, Kevin Heaton, Roy Roygogel, Joe Winchester, Troy Worthey and Herb Holman. Commissioner Hannah had to leave due to a previous appointment.


The chairman stated we would review the ordinance (Revision #9) paragraph by paragraph. This was accomplished and the meeting adjourned at approximately 2:00 p.m.
