Ms. Kershaw stated she and Ms. Kneessy attended the Value Adjustment Board meeting. She mentioned that the law has been changed to include a School Board appointed citizen on the committee. Ms. Kershaw suggested the Board follow the same process used for the Planning and Zoning Board appointee.
Ms. Kershaw stated the law requirement takes effect on September 1, 2008 and the qualification of the appointee has to be a business owner. If the Board agrees with the process then the staff can move forward with a board item.
Mr. Jordan and Mr. Hughes asked for clarification about the process and the qualification.
Ms. Kershaw stated the Board should also have an alternate citizen because of the requirements of a quorum. The VAB also changed from having two Board Members serve on the Value Adjustment Board to one Board Member.
Dr. DiPatri suggested District I give the appointee and District II give the alternate.
The Board agreed with Dr. DiPatri's recommendation.
Ms. Kershaw asked the Board Secretary to make a note for the organizational meeting in November.
Ms. Kneessy stated there will be an increased cost on the Value Assessment Board and the cost will be split between the County Commission and the School Board. We can no longer, as of September 1, 2008, use a county attorney; we have to hire someone from the outside and pay his or her hourly rate.
The special meeting of July 31, 2008 was adjourned at 5:24 p.m.
