Commission hopes to return to in-person meetings soon

A return to the traditional way of conducting business could be on its way to Warren County government. 

The last in-person meeting of the Warren County Commission was held in March, but it was closed to non-commission members. April’s meetings were held via Zoom, an online conferencing service. 

“We are getting used to this way of operating, but I’m actually looking forward to being back in a room with you all,” said County Commission chair Blaine Wilcher during Monday night’s Zoom session. “Hopefully, that will happen next month.”

Commissioner Tommy Savage stated, “Me, too.”

An “amen” could be heard from several members.

“I am so excited about maybe getting back next month to see everybody,” said Commissioner Cole Taylor. “I’m about burned out on this internet stuff.”

While the hope is to meet in person and be open to the public for June’s monthly session, if lessoning guidelines allow, no date was given for when normal days and hours would return to the business offices within Warren County Administrative Building.

County Clerk Lesa Scott’s drive-thru window is open Monday thru Friday. 

Monday thru Thursday hours are 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and Friday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Currently, foot traffic into the building is limited to Tuesdays and Thursdays by appointment only. Those arrangements can be made by calling each office.

A tentative date of June 1 has been set for the building to reopen. However, that date is contingent upon guidelines handed down by the state. If the building reopens at that time, other restrictions may be placed.
