Supervisors discuss legal fees for EDA members

16 January 2020 Front Royal/Warren County News

It remains in the air whether county money will be used to fund current and former Front Royal-Warren County Economic Development Authority board members’ legal fees. The EDA has requested $36,827 to fund the legal defenses of current EDA board members Mark Baker, Gray Blanton and Dr. Tom Patteson, and former board members Greg Drescher, William Biggs, Bruce Drummond and Ron Llewellyn.

County Attorney Jason Hamm said during the Warren County Board of Supervisors’ Tuesday work session that the county does not have a legal obligation to provide money for the legal fees. He added that the county cannot legally pay for EDA board members’ legal fees, but the county can give the EDA money. 

The supervisors on Jan. 21 will vote whether to fund the legal fees.
