Washington Supervisors discuss new state regulations

Posted: Tuesday, April 14th, 2009 at 7:07 am

Washington County's board of supervisors are going to be brushing up on some procedures that deal with appointing people to commissions and committees at this morning's meeting. A recently passed state law requires government leaders to strive to have an equal number of men and women serve on such commissions. It allows them to have an uneven ratio in the event that a position sits vacant for an extended period of time. Some Washington County Supervisors have previously stated that they are against the law, because it can sometimes be difficult to fill such positions. They'll meet at 9:30 this morning in the lower level of the courthouse.
