SOUTH WHITLEY â€“ The Whitley County Board of Commissioners held its regular meeting in a different environment Monday, as business was conducted in front of students from Whitko High School.
â€śI enjoy holding the meetings for the students,â€ť said County Commissioner Don Amber. â€śWe do this for the kidsâ€™ edification.â€ť
Amber said the commissioners occasionally held meetings at the South Whitley Library, but then it was suggested to move it to the school for students, particularly those attending a government class.
â€śWe have done this for three years, and I think itâ€™s something weâ€™ll continue to do,â€ť said Amber.
The next regularly-scheduled commissioners meeting will be held at Churubusco Jr.-Sr. High School Oct. 15 at 1:20 p.m.
Regular meetings are held the first and third Mondays of the month at the Whitley County Government Center, located on Van Buren Street in Columbia City.
