County Rescinds ULUC Extension

Item: ULUC contract extension rescinded: Commissioners agree to draft, sign alternative contract/Jeff Selle, Coeur d'Alene Press

More Info: In an action that was not properly noticed to the public last week, Kootenai County commissioners voted to rescind a $100,000 contract extension to fix its new controversial land use proposal. Commissioners went on during that meeting to approve a motion to draft and sign an alternative extension of the contract for $5,400 to draft a prospectus that would detail how their land use consultant, Kendig Keast Cooperative, would propose to fix the flawed Unified Land Use Code. In the draft minutes of that meeting, Commissioner Todd Tondee entertained a motion to reconsider the $100,000 contract extension that the commissioners approved on Aug. 13. According to the minutes, he explained to the commission that there was no time to notify the public by properly placing the item on the meeting agenda.

Question: Can someone decipher what's happening here.
