Macon County Commissioners 01-08-2013

The Macon County Commissioners met Tuesday night for the first regular meeting of the year. I have embedded videos of the meeting below. About 20 minutes into the first video is the portion of the meeting where Macon County Sheriff Robbie Holland ran a scenario involving a shooter at a school for the Commissioners to establish why he is against arming school teachers.

Prior to the meeting, the county recognized long serving employees with pins and plaques. I previously posted the video and photos of that at this link.
