The Washington County Auditor, Treasurer and Recorder will be meeting in special session on Wednesday, August 7th at 2 p.m. They are meeting to discuss the possible appointment for the Washington County Board of Supervisors’ position that is being vacated. Supervisor Chairman Ron Bennett of District 5 has announced his resignation due to health issues.
The constituents of district 5 do have the option of submitting a petition for a special election, which Widmer estimates would cost approximately $3,000.
The meeting will be held in the supervisors’ room at the court house.
