County Commissioners gathered electronically for the first time in history Tuesday night to authorize a school bond refinancing and handle other business in the midst of a viral pandemic.

Images of four Commissioners at their desks — or in one case ensconced in an easy chair — appeared on screens in the meeting room as they spoke, while others were only voices on the phone. The feed on Youtube was filled with echoes and strange noises, but the group managed to make it through the agenda in about an hour without a serious glitch.
