Lake County’s Board of Commissioners scheduled a pair of hearings related to a proposed ordinance that would deem the elected commissioner positions as non-partisan.
The commissioners discussed the ordinance during their Tuesday, March 20, work session with legal counsel Jim Bailey.
Bailey noted at that time that the commissioners had previously discussed the value of the ordinance, and had reached a consensus that they were in agreement in their support.
The commissioners must hold public hearings a minimum of 13 days apart prior to taking action on the proposed ordinance.
The commissioners approved, by unanimous vote, to schedule public hearings on May 15 as well as on June 5.
The latter hearing will be held at the commissioners’ June regular session in Fort Rock, as the county holds quarterly meetings at varied locations in northern Lake County.
The ordinance would then be placed on the November election ballot for consideration by the voters of Lake County.
