Chairman Brian McMahan requested the change in order to avoid conflicts with his work schedule, which requires him to arrive by 4 p.m. on the days in question.
With that change in place, commissioners’ regular schedule will now include a 6 p.m. meeting on the first Tuesday of each month, a 1 p.m. work session on the second Tuesday and a 1 p.m. meeting on the third Tuesday. Meetings are held in Room A201 of the Jackson County Justice and Administration Building, and work sessions are held in Room A227.
Commissioners also voted Jan. 21 to adopt a budget calendar, which will include a budget retreat at 1 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 20; a special-called budget meeting for revenue discussions at 1:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 27; and special-called budget work sessions May 21 and May 22.
The meeting schedule change and budget calendar were approved by four of the five commissioners, with Commissioner Mickey Luker absent for the meeting.
