The Board tabled the request for$10,000.00 to provide Disaster Relief Funding to the Liberal Area Coalition for Families (LACF) until budget sessions.

Approved was a request for waiver of fees to utilize the livestock arena and beef barn for SCCC Agriculture Program during Ag Week for a Livestock Judging Contest that will run April 17 – 21.
