The Lee County Government (LCG) held a special meeting of the Board of Commissioners (BOC) today, Friday, November 30, 2018 to present resolutions to Commission Tim Sloan and Commissioner Larry “Doc” Oldham to honor their service to Lee County at the conclusion of their current terms in office.
Commissioners spoke candidly about the relationships and accomplishments of the Board the past four years noting that although BOC members did not always share the same opinions, they appreciated the dedication of Sloan and Oldham and their commitment to serving and bettering the local community.
“These are men of character and integrity,” said BOC Chair Amy Dalrymple. “They are exemplary public servants and it has been an honor to serve the past four years with them.”
County Manager John Crumpton also spoke on behalf of county staff to thank Commissioner Sloan and Commissioner Oldham for their support of county staff and programs during their tenure that included the opening of an Employee Health Clinic to improve the overall healthcare and wellness options available to county employees. Crumpton also noted the significant support of education that included funding for a 3% increase in the Lee County Schools teacher supplements that helped the county be more competitive in attracting and retaining quality and high performing teachers.
The special meeting marked the final meeting of the current BOC; on Monday, December 3rd at 4:30 PM, LCG will hold a Swearing-In Ceremony for newly elected commissioners at the Lee County Government Center located at 106 Hillcrest Drive in Sanford.
