ATTORNEY DISCUSSION

Commissioner Jackson advised the Board that he had spoken with Mr. Glass regarding the

Resources Representative, it would be in the District’s best interest for him to review the
handbook. Mr. Glass has initiated Employee Handbooks in the past and the Board plans to submit
the DRAFT to him for review and comment. Mr. Glass quoted a cost of approximately $750.00
for his services.
