    Only eight days after being formed, the Blaine County School District’s new Financial Committee will hold its first meeting today, Sept. 17, at 4 p.m. The meeting, open to the public, will be held at the district office at 118 West Bullion St. in Hailey.
    Six community members, all with extensive business and/or accounting experience, were appointed to the committee by the district board of trustees at a board meeting on Sept. 9. The six committee members are Michael Beck, Kim Bryson, Lyman Drake, Charlie Gifford, Gerhardt Morrison and Sandi Viau.
    Also serving on the committee will be district employees Mike Chatterton, the district business manager; Robert Ditch, vice principal at Wood River Middle School; Elizabeth Andrews, a Wood River Middle School teacher representing the Blaine County Education Association; and either district Superintendent GwenCarol Holmes or Assistant Superintendent John Blackman.
    The committee is a permanent committee, with the assignment of researching and considering issues and providing advice to the board of trustees on matters pertaining to finances.
    According to the agenda, today’s committee meeting will be mainly organizational. Agenda items include a review of Financial Committee policy; selection of a chair, vice chair and secretary; development of committee bylaws; consideration of committee topics for review; and development of an upcoming meeting schedule.
