I. CALL TO ORDER
President Tony Rose called the special meeting to order at 5:45 p.m. All members of the board were present at roll call.
II. PURPOSE OF THE MEETING
The meeting was called for the purpose of approving a resolution in support of notifying the Pulaski County Election Commission that no polling places be opened for the September 2004 annual school election. According to Arkansas law, if there are no contested races and no other issues to be decided, the District may request that the Election Commission open no polling places, and that voting be done at early voting sites and by absentee ballot only. This option will result in a savings of approximately $35,000 for the District.
Ms. Strickland moved approval of the resolution. Mr. Berkley seconded the motion, and it carried unanimously. A copy of the resolution will be attached to these minutes.
There being no further business before the Board,
the meeting adjourned at
5:55 p.m. A budget worksession was conducted immediately following the meeting.
