If you’ve been wondering about something in your community, Ask The Times is your place to get answers. The following question was submitted by a reader and answered through the efforts of our news staff.
Does a request to table an item on a Hall County meeting agenda automatically mean the item will be tabled?
Such a request does not mean the item will necessarily be tabled.
“If there is a request to table an item on the agenda, the Board of Commissioners could choose to consider that request and would ultimately accept that request via a vote,” Hall County spokeswoman Katie Crumley wrote in an email. “The fact that a request to table has been made does not insinuate that is what will occur.”
That vote on whether to table would take place at the meeting at which the item is scheduled to be considered.
A recent example came last week when Mincey Marble asked that its request to build a new plant across the road from its current Browns Bridge Road operations be tabled two days before a Thursday meeting. The Hall County Board of Commissioners ended up voting at the meeting to table the item until its October meeting, as requested.
