Mr. Taylor asked if they still wanted to participate in the parade and all agreed, and he asked what they would like to do this year. The Commissioners agreed that if they were to hand out candy, but they would need more than last year. He asked if they wished to use a truck and it was agreed that they would need that to put the candy supplies in while walking in the parade. It was decided that Commissioners should wear sweatshirts since the weather could be cold. Discussion of budgeting for sweatshirts and Advisor Dave Lang thought it would be a good idea to budget for sweatshirts and candy all at the same time.
