The Commissioners Court has once again canceled a scheduled workshop meeting due to lack of attendance.
Only one commissioner is able to attend the July 15th workshop - three must be there to make a quorum.
As I reported last November (Commissioners agree: They work too hard!, CCO, Nov. 28, 2007), the court scaled back the twice a month workshops to once a month - but even that rigorous 3 meetings a month schedule has proven to be too much for our over worked and over paid elected commissioners.
The workshops were an outcome of the 2006 campaign, where "Open Government" was a key issue in both the County judge and Commissioners' races. Judge Self pushed for the twice a month workshops, and he and the court have been backing off that schedule ever since.
Is it time for an attendance policy for elected commissioners? Will they be refunding to the taxpayers the average $15,000 per meeting commissioners' salary paid out of tax funds?
