County building, property naming policy approved



Procedure for naming or renaming of a public building or property includes:

• County commissioners may propose a name;

• County commission staff may recommend a name;

• The commission may set in place a public process for soliciting input in the naming; 

• Any person, firm or association may propose a name;

Submissions come to the county manager by way of the county clerk.

Public hearings during a regular commission meeting are required for any change. A sign will be placed on the property to alert the neighborhood.

A minimum of three county commissioners “must affirm or acknowledge support” for the proposed name or rename to the county manager before presentation to the full board for the adoption or denial vote.

“Before bringing it to the agenda, it will have the full support of three commissioners,” Craig said. “All commissioners will see all of the information and have the opportunity to comment to the county manager.”

Davis disagreed with the “meeting before the meeting” idea. Craig said that section makes sure no families are offended during open public discussion.

“I’m just trying to avoid the embarrassment of prominent people and their families in our community,” he said Tuesday.
