Amendment to the 2014 BCC Meeting Calendar

Discussion on cancelling or rescheduling the August 26 and November 4 Board of County Commissioners Regular Meetings due to the primary and general elections.
The Board of County Commissioners regular board meetings of August 26 and November 4 this year fall on the primary and general election dates. Historically, the meeting schedules approved by the Board prior to each calendar year have not considered elections dates as a factor in developing meeting dates. Board Meetings for the last few elections are shown below:
Considerations for changing the schedule would include whether the public can attend or watch the televised Board Meeting on an election day. Polls for the election are open from 7 AM to 7 PM. Early voting and mail-in ballots could also be an option for those wanting to attend or view the board meeting.
Attached is a copy of the 2014 Meeting Schedule.
