During Friday’s workshop meeting, the commission discussed an upcoming August 15 deadline to submit three possible names for the Equalization Board. So far, only one qualified resident, Cleave Poole, has agreed to let his name be submitted. The board decided to not submit names at this time, in hopes of finding two more qualified, and willing appointees.
