  1. It is a shame in this day and age, the county can't better serve us upcounty residents by having a video conference link at the Damascus library for example. Downcounty residents are already over served by the county government. It is time to make it easier for upcounty residents to be heard. I get up at 0400 on a workday and having a meeting that runs at least until 8:30 one half hour away is not what I would call accessible. If we can pay for tablets students that need to learn the manual way, we can afford a video conference link for important meetings.
