MINUTES

Mr. Buehrer gave a six month update with regard to the 2019 Operational Budget and reviewed the 2018 Audit Report.  Andrea Shrewsberry answered questions regarding the Court budget and the audit report.

Discussion followed.

 

President Pauken asked if there were any questions relative to items on the agenda.

 

The Law Director stated that her letter regarding changes to the Rates & Fees Schedule (Item E) reflects that she and the Police Division had some additional fees to be added, but they have not had the opportunity to review and finalize those additional fees, so her letter is incorrect but the attached Rates & Fees Schedule is correct.

 

Mr. Buehrer stated that he probably should abstain on Item H, since his company has multiple contracts with ODOT.

 

Mr. Boellner asked about Mr. Buehrer’s recommended motion relative to Item C (OVI’s).

The Law Director responded that Mr. Buehrer has since amended his letter and requested motion, but since the agenda had already been published, those changes were not reflected on the agenda.

 

Mr. Boellner asked about the status of the Administrator interviews.

The Mayor responded that there will be a Special Council meeting scheduled to meet with one of the candidates.

 

Mr. Boellner asked when there would be an update on the water situation.
