Commissioner Ward McDaniel noted Gaskin’s track record of success.

“I have never seen you take on a project and not improve it. I think you’ll take this on and improve it,” he said.

Tan Smiley also voiced support, saying he “did not see a big problem.”

But Bryan and Commissioner Carmen McLemore expressed reservations, particularly about giving up ownership of a county building.

“This is a critical issue to me,” McLemore said. “I am going to have to sit down and look at all corners of this.”

Bryan said she would like to see a written proposal, which Gaskin said had been drafted and would be provided to commissioners.

Novak said he would work with Gaskin in sketching out a proposal to put before commissioners at their final September meeting.
