Though Allen said that no announcements would be forthcoming, and the commission would not return to regular session, the EDC apparently changed its collective mind and convened for a regular session after the closed meeting.
EDC Executive Director Sharon Butts released a press release detailing actions taken in the impromptu open meeting. She said that the board moved to approve a financial audit of its records.
In the second item of business, the board moved to ask Allen to write a letter to Trigg County Judge/Executive Stan Humphries in opposition to a plan by William Yoder of Nortonville to build an enclosed poultry feeding facility in Northwest Trigg County. Butts said that the board opposed the facility based on “the economic impact it would have on economic development and tourism.”
Before launching the executive session, Butts presented a financial report to commissioners. Board Member Don Leibee noted the balancing report, but requested a second statement in the future itemizing income and expenses.
Butts also called a recent trip to Canada productive, saying she brought corporate officials she met with to discuss the prospect of locating in Trigg County samples of Broadbent’s ham and bacon.
