Additional:  None.

Board Attorney, David Braun, was here to give the Board direction on the new drug testing policy. He stated that multiple hearings should be held so that the community has an opportunity to hear it, think about it, and come back with input. They should be able to argue for or against it. The hearings do not obligate the Board or the community. The hearings should be well documented with a definite beginning, response period, and end. It is up to the Board to best determine how to inform the public of the dates and times of the hearings.
