OLD BUSINESS:

Sheriff Contract:  The Finance Committee had met with Sheriff Grills and their agreement was to use the 2.8 law which gives the Sheriff a salary and percentage of the tax warrants collected. 

Council Member Warren moved to approve with a second from Council Member Kaiser.  The motion passed with 6 Yes and 1 No ( Council Member Dramman)

Council Member Armbrecht then moved to approve the Sheriff Salary shown on the Salary Ordinance of $75,388.00.  Council Member Kaiser seconded and the motion passed unanimously.

Auditor Wagner questioned how the tax warrants were paid to the Sheriff and was advised By Council Member Armbrecht that it was his understanding that the Sheriff paid himself from the warrants collected.

Council Member Armbrecht questioned material provided to the Council by the Auditor on ways to pay Sheriff.  Auditor Wagner advised the information had been received from the SBOA.

The next order of business was the Council appointment to the Vernon Forks Water District Board.  The County Commissioners and the County Council have a joint appointment to that board.  The Commissioners had voted to appoint Mr. Jeff Volz to the board.  Council Member Warren moved to appoint Mr. Jeff Volz with the Commissioners.  Council Member Dunbar seconded and the motion passed unanimously.

Mr. Warren Bruns advised the Council the funds that had been approved for the drainage would be requested at a later date once the drainage plan for Osgood is complete and the Park would then know where they stand.

PUBLIC COMMENT:

Council Member Armbrecht announced the Auditor’s Office was the first in the State to submit and obtain approval of the Fall Settlement.  This allows Schools, Cities, Towns, Trustees, Etc. to obtain their operation funds on time and eliminates the need to borrow funds to get through a year because the funds were late to them from the County.  Auditor Wagner thanked the Council and stated his staff deserved a lot of credit.

COMMITTEE REPORTS:

Economic Development:  Jeff Volz—Absent

Technology Committee:  Edward Armbrecht

Council Member Armbrecht advised the recommendations for new equipment for different departments. 

E911 Advisory Board:  Ben Peetz—Absent

SEI Regional Planning Comm:--Dephane Smith—None

Grants Committee:  Dephane Smith – Nothing new

Solid Waste District:  Donald Dunbar--  Site has been prepared for the addition on the recycling building.  When weather breaks it will be started.

EMS Advisory Committee:  David Simon—None

Council Member Dunbar thanked Council Member Simon for his past service to the County.  This was echoed by those present and by Commissioner Reiners and Commissioner Stutler who were present. 

He also asked about the Belterra money and the balances shown on the Treasurer’s report.  He asked Auditor Wagner to check the balances.

Council Member Warren brought up the recording of the meetings.  He then made a motion to not turn off the recordings until the meetings were adjourned.  The motion died from a lack of second.

Being no additional business to come before the Council,  Council Member Simon was given the honor to move to adjourn  The motion was seconded by Council Member Warren and approved unanimously. (7-yes)
