H. Rivers seconded the motion.   The motion was unanimously approved.


A motion was made by Robby Robbins, seconded by Bob Adkins, to accept County Attorney Karen Mullins’ amended contract dated Oct 11, 2018 as presented.

Supervisor Luntsford explained to Ms. Mullins that he has no problem with her work, and realizes the benefit she will be to the County Administrator with her knowledge of the County’s   business, and ongoing legal issues.  However, the Board started out to eliminate all contracts with the Triad, and have only one contract with the County Administrator.  He feels that this could be resolved without a contract.  Therefore, he cannot support the contract.

                Bobby Cassell
                Steve Bates
                Bob Adkins

A motion was made by Robby Robbins, seconded by Steve Bates, to adjourn the meeting.  The motion was unanimously approved.
