    The meeting began with a pledge to the flag, followed by a heartfelt prayer, expressing gratitude for blessings and seeking guidance in future actions.

    The commissioners approved the minutes of the previous regular meeting on July 11th without any objections. Next on the agenda was the settlements of various estates, which were presented by Cindy Alley, the supervisor. After due deliberation, the settlements were approved by the majority, except for Commissioner Phillips, who abstained.

    Financial approvals were discussed next, including budget revisions and arching transfers. The commissioners approved these transfers, allowing for various initiatives and programs within the county.

    The meeting then moved on to consider the Fiduciary Commissioner's report and recommendations for the William Allen Dean estate. The Commissioner acknowledged the complexity of the situation and appreciated the thoroughness of the report. The recommendations were approved with unanimous support.

    The commissioners also approved the employment of Christian McCoy as the Victim Services Coordinator for Victims of Crime. Christian's qualifications and commitment to the position were highlighted during the discussion.

    A new deputy hire for the Sheriff's Department was considered, and Bradley Parker Walls was approved for the position.

    The Meadow River Valley Association's request to serve as the HUD responsible entity for the former Rupert Elementary School was discussed and approved, as it aligns with the county's plans for development and infrastructure.

    The commissioners appointed Ed Robinson to fill the vacant board position for Greenbrier County Public Service District #1. Ed's qualifications and expertise were praised by the commissioners.

    Paula Brown was appointed as the interim director for Greenbrier County Homeland Security and Emergency Services. Paula will serve as the point of contact for disaster planning purposes until a permanent director is selected.

    The meeting concluded with updates on the construction of the new courthouse annex and a reminder to residents about paying only the first half of their personal property taxes to qualify for tax refunds from the state. The commissioners also encouraged interested individuals to apply for vacancies in the 911 dispatch center.
