PARKERSBURG -Wood County commissioners canceled their regularly scheduled meetings for June 6 and 10. The next meeting will be held on June 13 at 9 a.m.
A spokesman for the commission said all three public officials had vacation plans so the meetings were canceled.
"It's actually better for our office if they all three go on vacation at the same time, rather than trying to plan around individual vacation plans, and this way they are still having one meeting a week," county administrator Marty Seufer said.
The commissioners are entitled to take vacation time off just like any other county official or employee.
Commissioner Steve Gainer did not attend the June 5 Wood County Planning Commission meeting.
The commission met on Monday of this week and will meet next Thursday, which originally was not a scheduled meeting. Under the commission's new meeting schedule, approved in January, the commissioners are to meet every Monday and on the first and third Thursdays of each month.
