The roll call vote was 7-1, with Magistrates Perry Reeder (4), Billy Dean Coffey (5), Greg Caldwell (6), and Terry Hadley (7) and CJE Mike Stephens affirming, and only Magistrate Harold Burton (1) voting no.

The county will now enter into negotiations with SPM Properties, Inc, toward purchase of a lot owned by them adjacent to the Adair 911 Center, fronting on Merchant and High Streets.

Also present at the meeting were representatives of the media, County Attorney Jennifer Hutchison-Corbin, County Finance Officer Gale Cowan, acting as recorder; and Deputy CJE Holly Grimsley.
