Discussion:  Board member Ken Hoover voiced his opinion as follows, "I feel it is important for our community to understand that these ILA's for shared services, while necessary, were not patterned after a typical vendor/customer relationship. The deliverables outlined are so general as to be unenforceable, mediation of disputes is not a realistic option, and the final costs are not yet determined. In the end, we are proceeding on trust and faith. We know the outstanding Superintendents in Bartlett and Collierville will deliver the services we need."
