Preparations made for return to in-person meetings

Details are being finalized for Warren County Commission’s monthly session, an in-person meeting scheduled for this Monday, Oct. 19, at 6:30 p.m.

The meeting will be a hybrid session and held at Warren County Administration Offices’s courtroom. Commis-sioners who do not wish to be in physical attendance will be allowed to join the meeting electronically through the cellphone of another who is.

“As part of our first ‘live’ meeting next week, I want to make sure everyone is in touch with their district counterpart,” said Commissioner Blaine Wilcher, in an email to commissioners, directors, and elected officials. “If for some reason the other commissioner in your district will not be able to attend in person, please allow them to call in on your cellphone on speaker. This will help with the confusion that could happen without a plan.”

Wilcher, chairman of the commission, advised that his cellphone cannot be used. 

“Also, I will not be able to take a call while I’m covering the chair’s responsibilities, so we may need help with receiving department director’s and other’s calls,” said Wilcher. “If for some reason, there are not enough lines available for those besides the commissioners to call in, we will have to review the reports without their input.”

He stressed adherence to the any attendance guidelines set out by County Executive Jimmy Haley, such as wearing facemasks during the meeting. 

“I appreciate your patience as we work to have a safe, productive and hopefully smooth meeting,” said Wilcher.
