VIDALIA &045; In a brief, special meeting, the Concordia Parish School Board passed one item of business Wednesday night.

The board passed a resolution saying Thomas H. O’Neal, director of business affairs, would be designated to oversee expenditures for the school district.

The resolution was drafted because the superintendent, Lester Peterman, retired and there is no treasurer to execute the duties.
