Judge Lacy noted that when the state requires a hearing, it is mandated to be held in the evening, so more people will be available to attend
Lacy suggested that the first meeting of each month be held in the evening, and noted that the central jury room should always be available, facilitating larger crowds.
There was no discussion at all among the members of the Court.
When Lacy’s motion came to a vote, it was defeated. Lacy and Commissioner Mike Carter voted “yes,” and Commissioners Sammy Stone, Tom Whitten, and Kelly Blackburn voted “no.”
