There is a Board of County Commissioners meeting scheduled for Aug. 26 -- the day of the primary election. I think that's odd timing, as two of those commissioners' seats are being contested on that day.
Typically, the agendas for the Board of County Commissioners meetings are posted to the county's website on the Friday of the week preceding the meeting date.
I believe that the agenda for this unusually placed meeting should be made public right away, as the citizens of Manatee County deserve an opportunity to judge the timing of the discussion items and perhaps request a more appropriate scheduling of that meeting.
Never miss a local story.
