Commissioners Rescind Insurance Benefit
Friday our County Commissioners met in a special call meeting to discuss the insurance benefit they had created for themselves. About 300 angry citizens showed up for the 3pm meeting. Kip Godwin, started the meeting telling the public that the board would not hear from them, that if the people wanted to be heard the needed to attend a regular board meeting. He then gave the floor to Amon McKenzie to give the boards decision. He basically said that he and the board did nothing wrong and that the citizens where in the wrong for the way we reacted. He recieved a round of hissing and comments from those in attendance. The only commissioner that even tried to apoligize was James Prevatte. After that the board dismissed and all but McKenzie and Prevatte quickly left the floor.
