The Gordon County Board of Commissioners held a Work Session Tuesday, September 1, 2009 at 6:00 p.m. in the Administration Building Conference Room.
Chairman Long called the meeting to order.
The Board discussed each item on the Agenda for the Regular Meeting and made no changes to the Agenda; one item was added to the Agenda later in the meeting.
The Board discussed correspondence between the Gordon County Board of Education and the Calhoun-Gordon County Library Board ending the BOE’s annual funding for the local library program. There was a consensus of the Board to fund the $4,000 for this fiscal year for the BOE’s portion to the Calhoun-Gordon County Library Board and this item was added to the Agenda for Board approval.
Mr. Dan Bumgardner came before the Board to request the Board’s approval for his client to be able to apply for a malt beverage and wine license for a location that is presently in the planning stages of construction. County Attorney Hutchinson explained to the Board that the ordinance did not allow for a license to be issued without a physical building being in place before application for such a license. Mr. Bumgardner asked for a change to the ordinance to allow such an application, or for approval of a variance allowing the client to attempt to secure a license before spending the funds for a building, instead of his having to rely on the hope that a license would be granted after spending the money completing the building. The Board assured Mr. Bumgardner that they would take his request under consideration and would advise him of their decision.
