LACONIA — A meeting of the Belknap County Convention's Executive Committee scheduled for Tuesday afternoon was cancelled due to lack of a quorum.
Committee Chairman Frank Tilton (R-Laconia) and members Don Flanders (R-Laconia) and Robert Greemore (R-Meredith) were the only members of the seven-member committee present. Absent were Guy Comtois (R-Barnstead), Herb Vadney (R-Meredith), Jane Cormier (R-Alton), and Colette Worsman (R-Meredith).
Tilton said that the meeting had originally been scheduled to take up a request from the Belknap County Commissioners for a $10,500 budget transfer to the corrections department but the request had been withdrawn by the commissioners, who wrote a letter to the committee in which it said a decision had been made to use the county's contingency account to make up the shortfall.
The committee took no action on the request at its October 22 meeting.
