Wednesday, October 2

The Board of Supervisors will meet in executive session to discuss the County Attorney vacancy.  Part of this discussion will include the Citizen Advisory Committee.

Wednesday, October 2 OR Thursday, October 3

The Board will look to appoint a new County Attorney in a special public meeting on either Wednesday afternoon or Thursday morning.  This would happen in the Board of Supervisors Auditorium at 205 W.
