and closed a meeting in five minutes on Thursday evening. The
meeting was the third scheduled adjourned meeting intended to
approve the delayed 2005 audit. The meeting had been scheduled based

adjourned meeting was canceled due to the audit not being available
yet, and on Thursday there was still not a completed audit,
according to finance chairman Chuck Ruben.
The board then moved into
the April workshop meeting.

Mike McIntosh, law enforcement chairman, moved to bring the
previously considered truancy ordinance off the table, and that was
approved. After little discussion, a motion was moved and seconded
to approve the ordinance. The board in a voice vote moved it forward
for a final vote at the next adjourned meeting, which, due to the
election, has moved from Tuesday to Thursday next week.

close to an acre each. Initially Plat III was to be 13 lots that
would be one-half acre each. The new plat will include concrete
drainage gutters and a cul-de-sac.
