the motion to place the referendum on the ballot, with Logan,
Luster, O'Neill and Stewart voting "no."
In other board
approvals, there was a unanimous vote to pass the Clerk of Courts

The resolution to
allow the county legal holidays was met with one vote of opposition
from Dick Logan, who feels that Good Friday should be included in
county holidays. Voyles also noted that Casimir Pulaski Day has
recently been taken off the holiday lineup.
