No vote on the amendments to the draft County Ordinance proposed by Herschel Brown was taken at the Wednesday (December 18th) Land Information Committee meeting. The next meeting on January 7th will be an “informational” meeting where Jeremy Williamson ((LWRD) and Jeff Fuge (Corp Counsel) are invited to discuss water quality and legal issues respectively. A vote on the Brown amendments may take place at that meeting.
