Henry County resident Robert Batey came to the supervisors meeting this morning with legal counsel. He had asked his lawyer to speak to the supervisors on his behalf regarding a discussion that supposedly occurred outside a regular meeting in February. The discussion was to have revolved around the construction of a large cross on Batey’s property south of Mt. Pleasant. The lawyer read from a transcript and said there had been a discussion at length about the cross. Batey’s lawyer said this was contrary to a comment from Planning and Zoning Adm. Joe Buffington that he merely stepped in after the meeting adjourned to give the supervisors a heads up regarding the fact that Batey did not get a permit from the county to construct the cross. The lawyer said it was more than a head’s up but instead a lengthy discussion that wasn’t on the agenda and that Batey was not notified to be there and participate. According to the lawyer, Batey doesn’t want to pursue a lawsuit and isn’t looking for damages. Instead he wants a county government that follows the law. The supervisors, Buffington and County Attorney Darin Stater did not have any questions or comments.
