There will be a special meeting of the Columbia County commissioners to review Board Meeting and Ethics Policies. We have no insight as to what may come up at this meeting, but in light of the recent improper conduct by commission chairman Ron Williams, hopefully these policies can be improved and corrected.
Mr. Williams has been accused of using county resources for personal campaigning for reelection and also it appears he ignored his elected county attorney Joel Foreman and went over his head for legal advice which he then presented to the board as factual. Ethics if not policies dictate that he consult his attorney in legal matters.
If you feel that the board’s policies have been lacking in propriety lately, please come to the meeting. Likely there will be an opportunity for public comment and you can tell Mr. Williams and the other commissioners how you feel about this.
Schoolboard Administrative Complex Auditorium, 372 W Duval St, Lake City, FL 32055, USA.
3 o’clock on Thursday March 16 2017.
