County travel request brings questions

Published: Thursday, June 20, 2013 at 11:31 AM.

The BOCC also got its first look at a proposed process for crafting the agenda, which would require commissioners to place items on the agenda by a deadline or seek approval of a super-majority (four votes) at the beginning of the meeting to amend the agenda to include any additional items requiring a vote.

In seeking that amendment, the commissioner must explain the purpose for inclusion in the agenda.

The process would be similar for staff to bring an item to the BOCC after deadline, but the request for an amendment must come from a commissioner.

Any request from the public that arrived after the deadline would follow the same procedure.

The document was drafted by county attorney Jeremy Novak.

The goal is the increase public awareness and transparency regarding the issues and topics to be discussed, the policy stated.

Bryan asked that commissioners review the policy and come back with suggested revisions at the next BOCC meeting.
