Although the final decision rests in the hands of the Stokes County Commissioners, the Stokes County Board of Health met on Tuesday night to reach their own decision which would be considered by the commissioners. In the end, the board voted not to make a decision but to turn the issue totally over to the commissioners.
Ron Carroll, a county commissioner who is also a member of the board of health, spoke out at the Tuesday night meeting. “I can’t make a recommendation on something I can’t see,” he said, referring to the fact that the terms of the contract have not been made public. Carroll insisted he needed to know “the nuts and bolts of it.”
