The Henderson County Board of Commissioners made quick work of the proposed firing range and law enforcement training center, killing the proposed purchase of the 100-acre tract of land and ending Sheriff Charlie McDonald's quest for the advanced training site.

The action came without discussion and without the emotional public comment that has characterized the board's efforts to site the project. Consent agenda item F said simply, "Requests the board direct staff to not complete the purchase of Macedonia Road site." Commissioners adopted the consent agenda items unanimously, ending the controversy. 

When Board Chair Michael Edney moved on to the meeting's only discussion item, a budget work session, 25-30 members of the audience got up and left the meeting room.
