Cabarrus Board of Commissioners and Board of Education hold joint meeting

 Opening mediation moves to small group work sessions

June 20, 2014 —
This afternoon, the Cabarrus County Board of Commissioners and Cabarrus County Board of Education met in a special joint meeting to discuss the sufficiency of the amount of money appropriated to the Board of Education for the current expense fund and the capital outlay fund by the Board of Commissioners for FY2015.
The meeting began with an introduction by mediator Thorns Craven, followed by opening statements from each board.
The discussion included building maintenance allowance, continuation costs and capital outlay.
Following the discussion, both boards recessed and divided into small groups for a mediated work session.
The boards reconvened for a short period to say that additional research was necessary and the small group work sessions would continue at a closed meeting on July 11 at 1 p.m.
Today’s joint meeting was taped and will air on TimeWarner cable Channel 22 in Cabarrus beginning later tonight and through next week and will reside on the Cabarrus County YouTube channel,
