He said that a final determination would be made by the board at the next meeting based on what happened at the next meeting of the county commissioners (May 20th at 6pm).
The Board then voted to postpone their next meeting (which had previously been scheduled to take place at the same time as the county commissioner meeting, to 6pm on May 28th at Nantahala School. The meeting was then adjourned.
