    How would Staff propose that kind of thing? That is really embarrassing for the Commissioners, but it says something about the Staff....

    I have to agree. I have a board of zoning appeals that never meets (we don't get many variances). I made sure to call each person and make sure they wanted to be reappointed. I talk to them at least once a year just to make sure they're alive and interested.
    I don't pretend to understand Brannigan's Law. I merely enforce it.

    This is the county next door to my home county. No one here is surprised.
