Another motion discussed was the new rolling filing system proposed by Christian County State’s Attorney Mike Havera.

That motion passed unanimously at the meeting.

An issue brought by Marchelle Kassebaum, the Regional Office of Education Christian-Montgomery Counties Superintendent, in her report to the County Board was the issue of truancy in schools. Schmitz says that he likes the idea that Kassebaum had to cut down truancy.
