9. If a board member lives more than 30 miles away from the location of a board meeting (the official station is the member's home) and the travel extends more than three hours over the normal workday, is the board member entitled to meal reimbursement?

As long as the normal work schedule (as determined by the agency head) is exceeded by 3 hours, and the meeting is 30 miles or more from the board member's home, it is at the agency head's discretion whether to reimburse for a meal or not. It seems reasonable to include driving time in the calculation of the normal workday since the board member is returning to the official station from the point of business that particular day.
