Lengthy discussion was held on whether or not to continue with the projects or abandon them. It was decided four to one to proceed and look for future funding with all documents in question to be reviewed by the county attorney.
The Supervisors also chose to end a lease agreement for county-owned farm ground as well as approve an agreement with the city of Washington regarding an urban renewal area for the Oakwood Village Subdivision. This agreement will involve annexation of land into the city of Washington.
