Eighteen minutes for the whole meeting, mostly consisting of reading out the agenda sheet text for each item. The longest item was 7b. Accept Gaines Lane Quit-Claim Deeds, apparently because of a need for a title search and to prepare a plat, and who would pay for it, the county or other.
Here are the costs found in the agenda sheets for each item, most expensive first:
|$399,414.00||Bid for a 3,000 Gallon Tanker for the Fire Department|
|$28,327.04||Request to Purchase New Firefighter Turnout Gear|
|$19,167||Solicitor-General’s Office 2020 VAWA Grant Award Activation|
|$4,836.00||Approval of Clyattstone Rd.-Simpson Ln. ROW Purchases|
