The Bibb County school board Thursday discussed changing its makeup of eight members to an unspecified odd number but took no formal action.
Board members Jason Downey and Lester Miller wanted to trim the number of board seats, but board member Wanda West said she would like to see a nine-member school board, which would mirror the size of the Macon-Bibb County Commission.
Downey, however, said state law prevents school boards from having more than seven members. The Bibb County Board of Education was grandfathered in to allow eight members.
Downey made a motion to take action on the item but withdrew his motion late in the meeting, and no vote was taken. Board member Ella Carter was absent for medical reasons.
