Gray said she felt the public would be more inclined to attend if the meetings were moved to 5:30 p.m. The meetings currently take place every second Friday at 11 a.m. 

 

Member Dr. Wes Barrett seconded the motion but board member Jane Kilgore moved to table the motion until the August meeting, noting board member Brian Clark's absence. 

 

The motion to table passed unanimously. It will be discussed again in August.
