4:35 PMWe are back after a brief recess, and we're going to complete our work for today. We already handled 28, correct? We did. So let's go to agenda item 42, which was discuss in executive session. There is no need for action today. Although there is lots of good work going open behind the scenes. On agenda item 43 blessedly there's no action because that case is dismissed. Item 44, no action necessary today. 45, no action necessary today. On agenda item number 46, Commissioner Daugherty, do you have a motion?

4:36 PMExecutive session regarding travis county versus r steven mcnaly.
Motion by Commissioner Daugherty, seconded by Commissioner Gomez. All those in favor. That passes unanimously. Next let's go to the sobering center item agenda item 12. Is it the court's desire to take a vote today? Would you like to take a week to consider? We have three amazing candidates. I do know that the city of austin is also engaged in filling a vacancy on the sobering center. I don't know where they are in their process.
Do you know where they are in the process?
They're in the middle -- they're in the middle of interviews right now. It does not appear that they've made a selection yet.
4:37 PMDo we know who is heading that up?
That would be the health and human services committee of the city of austin.
Who chairs that? do you know?
That is chair natasha harper madison.
I May want a little bit of time. We have fabulous candidates and I need to cogitate a little bit on them. We could easily vote today if people wanted to.
We will reset this for next Tuesday for a decision but, really, wow, great work, y'all, producing three just absurdly good candidates who I know all three will remain involved in this space no matter what happens. So just wow.
Yeah, really familiar -- fabulous.
With that I believe we are done for the day. Is that correct, jillian?

4:37 PMOh, wow.
And so even though I thought it was a jam-packed agenda and we would never get through it all, it appears that we are done at 4:37. If there's no objection we're adjourned.
4:38 PMWhat was 16? that's where I was a little late I think that got done.
That got done. it was the decommissioning of the 192 beds.
So yes?
[ off mic ]
Do you want to reopen that item to show you voting with us?
That would be fine.
Is there a motion -- can I do that even though we recessed? Yes, okay.
So moved.
That's a motion and a second to reopen agenda item number 16. Offiall those in favor of reopening. That passes unanimously. It was originally moved by Commissioner Shea's motion, Commissioner Gomez's second.
