District 2 Commissioner Chris Gaines last week presented a request made on behalf of the Development Authority of Dawson County to provide funds to the newly appointed board members for training. At the authority's last meeting on Jan. 31, Chairwoman Sherry Weeks lamented the loss of county funding in the event that the commission appointed new members to the authority board. "If they chose to not reappoint some of the people that we have, then I think we should ask for training money from the board of commissioners," Weeks said during the meeting.
