UPDATED: 4:15 pm – Supervisors gave unanimous first reading approval today with little comment from supervisors or the pubic.
Roanoke County Supervisors are scheduled to once again consider an invocation policy today, one designed to avoid legal challenges. Earlier attempts to create a policy led to strident objections in some quarters, so the County Attorney went back to the drawing board. This version places much of the burden for complying with court rulings on those who deliver the invocations. WFIR’s Evan Jones has the story.
