Placeholder Image
It will be one and done for members of five boards appointed by the county.The Warren County Commission has passed a resolution that prevents appointees to five of its boards from serving consecutive terms. The wording of the resolution doesn’t prevent the appointee from serving again, but consecutive terms are not allowed.Commissioner Dwight O’Neal presented the measure as a way to get some “new blood” involved in the community. He pointed out some people have been serving on the same boards for decades.The measure affects the Industrial Development Board, the Board of Equalization, and three separate boards related to the airport – the Airport Zoning Committee, the Airport Commission, and the Airport Board of Zoning Appeals.The resolution passed 18-3 Monday with Commissioners Wayne Copeland, Kenneth Rogers and Les Trotman voting against it.O’Neal brought up the idea Feb. 11 in a Policy and Personnel Committee meeting.
