Board President Tina Moore said she had faith in the members of the board to oversee a finance committee without trying to undermine the authority of the board.
"I feel comfortable with the idea of a committee because of the dynamics of this board," she said.
The board voted unanimously to approve the creation of a finance committee and appointed Schutte and Don Strohl to the committee.
