?Board of Commissioners propose to make Madge Lyles full time assistant in Veterans’ Affairs Office PDF Print E-mail
Friday, 24 October 2008 00:00
?    The Washington County Board of Commissioners met in regular session on Wednesday afternoon, October 15, with all members present.  The Commissioners unanimously approved the minutes of previous meetings, all claims and payroll requests.
    In a far more civil environment that what was experienced by the County Council on the evening of October 10, the Commissioners engaged in meaningful discussion with supporters of Madge Lyles.  The 30-40 supporters listened as Board President, Lana Sullivan, outlined a plan that would place Madge Lyles in the part-time position as Veterans Affair Office (VAO) Assistant, working two days a week.  After hearing why Lyles was too valuable to the needs of veterans to work only part time, the Commissioners agreed that the funding was available within the VAO approved budget to pay for a full time assistant.
