The items are moved to a vote and are approved by the board.

Mcfalls discusses the next item which is the boards discourse over house bill  202 

Barnes and Terrance Dicks  suggest to “table the discussion until they have further legal review”

Mcfalls calls for the board to revisit the item

The motion is passed 

Minnick Park polling location is being closed so the county will have to find a new polling place in the area. 

Bailey says the area is large and covers a lot of residential voters.

Travis Doss says he has reached out to 4 candidates for the new space.

Doss has made contact with a local church owner who also has purchased Murphy middle school.

“The facility is very big and we would only need to use half.” says Doss with the only problem is parking being non ADA compliant.

The board reviews a few more options for the change before scheduling the topic to be talked about another day.

Meeting adjourned
