Smiley confronts PSJ commissioners on redundancies

Published: Thursday, January 23, 2014 at 09:33 AM.

Other than one time – pertaining to issues on Avenue A which Buzzett noted had been addressed – Smiley had never come to him.

Mayor Mel Magidson wondered if any city commissioner appearing before the BOCC would be permitted to spend 20 minutes at the podium and also asked if Smiley was willing to support county-wide voting, as 70 percent of county residents have supported at the ballot box.

Smiley’s reply was that as long as he was chairman of the BOCC, the podium was available to the public for whatever time was needed.

He replied that he would not support county-wide voting because it was not the solution to the county’s ills.

Board membership

Tension that stemmed from the prior meeting’s discussion about the makeup of city volunteer boards arose again as Commissioner Bo Patterson said he would consider a policy to bar anyone from serving on more than one board.

“I love volunteers, but I feel strongly if you are on a board, you should focus all your energy on that board,” Patterson said.
