The Board of Supervisors has potentially changed its opinion to continue the 2 p.m. meetings that have been in effect now for several years. Supervisor Terry Austin said, “It would be of benefit to the local weekly paper The Fincastle Herald as well as the county administration to go back to the 9 a.m.”
Austin said, “No one was coming except those who had to be there.” However, the room was full earlier in the meeting during the Eagle Rock community center public hearing and the speech by Carolyn Slaughter about the Blue Ridge School. For the past several years that has been more of the rule rather than the exception.
Mac Scothorn who is a local ophthalmologist said he may have to resign if the meetings move back to 9 a.m.
The changes will be enacted in the January 2013 meeting. After the meeting, Supervisor Jack Leffel would like to get comments about the proposal.
