            Solicitor, Rachel Jones said it was okay that David Burtch could stay on the Board of Appeals and that Robert Fisher could still be on the Planning Commission because he lives in Paulding County.


Solicitor, Rachel Jones did some research regarding retrospective legislation.  She stated that typically that cannot be done especially if there is a penial clause of an Ordinance.  Exception to this would be if the retrospect legislation protects the public and the case of Ordinance 1540-17 re-allocation of income tax receipts.
