Do you know where your elected official is this afternoon?by George Bennett | October 28th, 2009
Among the topics the group will discuss: a countywide ethics watchdog. County commissioners are considering a package of ethics reforms for county government. The school board and city governments could also come under the proposed inspector general’s scrutiny if elected officials agree. No binding votes are expected today.
UPDATE: School board Chairman Bill Graham just reminded everyone that the 0.5 percent county sales tax to pay for school construction is set to expire at the end of 2010. The tax, originally approved in a 2004 referendum, can only be extended if voters approve in another referendum
“We’d like to have a discussion with everybody here about what we might do in the future,” Graham said.
The group put off discussion of the matter until the next multi-board meeting in January.
