Racial profiling will be one topic of discussion at the Howard County Commissioner's meeting, scheduled for 3:30 p.m. Wednesday in the third-floor courtroom of the Howard County Courthouse, 300 S. Main St.
Sheriff Stan Parker will present a report on racial profiling and discuss how prevalent it is in Howard County during the meeting.
Other items on the meeting's agenda include:
• Guidelines and criteria for tax abatement. The item was discussed at the commissioners previous meeting Jan. 16, and tabled to give them more time to consider the issue.
• An update on the Howard County Teen Court reorganization.
• Discussion and consideration of a request to establish a Juvenile Case Manager fund.
