Hynson to serve again as BoS chair

District 4 Supervisor W. W. “Woody” Hynson will preside over Westmoreland Board of Supervisors meetings for a second year.
When the reorganizational meeting was brought to order last Monday by County Administrator Norm Risavi, District 2 Supervisor Russ Culver wasted no time delivering the motion to nominate Hynson.  District 1 Supervisor Darryl Fisher was elected to the position of vice chair by another unanimous vote.
In separate action board members voted to establish one-year terms for the leadership positions. Terms of office of all five seats on the Board of Supervisors expire this Dec. 31, 2011. Voters will elect the next Westmoreland County Board  Nov. 8, 2011.

The meeting schedule adopted for the current calendar year will not change in 2011. On even numbered months the meetings will start at 6 p.m., but sessions on odd-numbered months convene at 9:30 a.m. The action affirmed that meetings will take place in A.T. Johnson auditorium on the second Monday of the month unless that Monday is a state and federal government holiday.
When a meeting date would interfere with a government holiday or when severe weather makes it impossible for board members to travel, meetings will be held on the Wednesday after the second Monday of that month. When circumstance dictates unanticipated action, special meetings will be called.
Yet another reorganizational action generated some discussion. The calendar that will govern local government employee holidays customarily mirrors state and federal vacation days. The 2011 holiday schedule prepared for adoption last Monday failed to account for the upcoming New Year’s Eve government holiday. The board adjusted that local government employee vacation date.
Separate reorganizational action reinstated the rules of procedure that dictate how Board of Supervisors meetings are conducted. Past Chairman and veteran District 1 Supervisor Darryl Fisher commented on the set of protocols.
Addressing the public, Fisher advised “points of order are decided by the chair. We do have a public comment period, but it’s the chair who decides whether or not there will be an exchange between the board and the public during all the other times.”
