Commissioners Upset with CAT Board

As previously reported here, CAT has decided to look at two new locations for a transfer center, as well as keeping the first location in the plan. Commissioners say that decision was made without any discussion. The full CAT board was supposed to meet today, but the meeting was called off, because there was nothing on the agenda. Commissioners say with so much going on, that is not acceptable. So commissioners voted to hold a special meeting.

"The CAT board overstepped their boundaries," said District 7 commissioner Dean Kicklighter. "They should not do what they did yesterday, and I will do everything in my power to keep them from doing that in the future."

The full CAT board will meet at the next County Commission meeting on July 26. Commissioners say they will bring their suggestions regarding the location of the new transfer station.
