One item that needs to be re-submitted with the application is a new resolution from the Board authorizing submitting the grant application. Commissioner Long made a motion to approve the resolution authorizing submitting the grant application. Commissioner Hood seconded the motion and Commissioners Long, Hood, and Townsend voted aye. Motion passed.
