  Joseph Palmer & Judy Vasquez Sunman, In. presented concerns about a drainage problem in (ditching on Negandardís Corner) Sunman.  Commissioners will have Andy Bryant take a look at the problem.

  Commissioners discussed the payroll problem at length and no solution was made about the current problem.

  Commissioner Reiners stated that at the last commissioners meeting, it was stated that the commissioners did not want Scott Melling to work any more over time. This was due to Melling turning in approx. 1600 to 1700 hours and considering himself a salaried employee. Ripley county considers Melling an exempt salaried employee, not a salaried employee. Executive employees whom we consider Melling are paid on a salaried basis of at least $250 per week and have as their primary duties the management of the business or department of the business, customary & regularly the supervision of direct work of at least two other employees. Administrative employees are paid on a salaried basis of at least  $250 a week, have as their primary duty the performance of the office or non manual work directly related to the management policies or general business operations.  Customary  & regularly perform work involving exercised discretion & independent judgement.  Ripley County & Margaret Mary Hospital share Mellingís salary. Reiners stated that he had talked to Nancy Martique, Director, Margaret Mary Hospital and it is under the hospitalís opinion that Melling is an exempt salaried employee. The same status that  Ripley County considers him and that exempt salaried employees are not eligible for over time pay. Reiners motioned that it is the wish of this body we tell Melling that he is to work as many hours as needed to perform his duties as director, seconded by Commissioner Folz. Motion approved unanimously.

  The Ripley County Commissioners reviewed the annual appointment for 2005. Commissioner Reiners made the motion to approve the appointments listed below effective January 1st, 2005 seconded by Commissioner Folz. Motion approved unanimously.
