Morgan Co. Commission changes meeting day

January 02, 2009

BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. -- The Morgan County Commission on Friday voted 2-1 to change the days for its twice-monthly commission meetings from Friday to Thursday.

The meetings will be held either at 9:30 a.m. or 4 p.m.

"This is an experiment and we will revisit it in six months," said Commission President Brenda J. Hutchinson, who voted in favor of the change.

Hutchinson said other county commissions in the Eastern Panhandle have Thursday meetings, and Friday is a bad day to hold meetings.

Commissioner Stacy A. Dugan also voted in favor of the change.

Commissioner Thomas R. Swaim voted against the change, saying county employees already work on Friday until 7 p.m. His concern was how to staff the Thursday meetings after 5 p.m.

"It is for the people in the county, not the commission's convenience," Hutchinson said of the change. She suggested comp time be used on Thursdays for staff members.

The following is the commission's meeting schedule for 2009. All meetings will be held on Thursday unless otherwise noted.
