BOC adds ‘Kumbaya’ to meetings

A local folk singer leads an enthusiastic Board of Commissioners in a chorus of “Kumbaya” to start a regular meeting.

Seeking to cool rising tensions at their lengthy Thursday night meetings, the County Board of Commissioners is adding a bit of mandatory team building to the start of each agenda. Following the prayer and Pledge of Allegiance, the commissioners will now gather and sing “Kumbaya” before getting down to the business of the agenda.
