County Trustee Bill Hullander said he'd like for the state Attorney General to weigh on on whether he should give the schools money the county receives from payment in lieu of taxes agreements.

Superintendent Jim Scales and school board attorney Scott Bennett have said they believe keeping the money is an illegal act; earlier this month the commission decided to keep the money and wants to earmark it for school construction.

"Basically I wanted to ask him is if what the county commission did, does he agree that's OK," Hullander said. "Is it OK for me as trustee to do what they have instructed me to do?"
