A joint meeting between the Union County board of commissioners and school board that had been scheduled for Tuesday night has been postponed following the death of a board member’s father.

School board member Marce Savage’s father, former Mecklenburg County commissioner Dan Ramirez, died Sunday night. The two boards did not anticipate having a quorum for the meeting because board members might be attending visitation services for Ramirez.

A new meeting date has not been set yet, although the session may occur next week.

The rare meeting between the often fractious boards is meant to serve as a way to mend fences while dealing with the 2014-15 budget.
