Bottom line

Commissioners have a light agenda for their meeting Tuesday and will meet at 5 p.m. instead of their normal time of 6:35 p.m. Four of the five commissioners will be out of town and will be participating by conference call.


Among the items on the agenda is a request by Lawrence Memorial Hospital to receive a site plan for a temporary parking lot on the hospital campus at 325 Maine. The parking lot is being constructed on a portion of the property where the eastern wing of the hospital once stood. It will add 103 parking spaces to the LMH campus.
