2019 BUDGET CLARIFICATIONS

Council President Kramer said when Council moved Detective Tony Lantz into the Sheriff’s matrix during budget time that he would no longer get longevity since it is built into the merit deputy wage scale.

Auditor Rogers read through the changes to part time hourly rates to be sure she and the Council were on the same page.

Councilor Anderson said he does not think the part-time hourly rate should go up every time the full-time salaries go up.

Translators are used in the Courts and are paid per case. Translation Service is for all the other offices. The Human Resource Office has a list of translators to call when needed.

Auditor Rogers will send Council the approved 2019 Salary matrix with the beginning base salary for each position listed.

PAYROLL REQUEST

Council President Kramer said the only payroll request this month is in the Title 4D Office. Ashley Halsen will be paid the regular part-time rate of $11.55/hr.

BOARD MEETING REPORTS

White County Emergency 911 Board: Councilor Clear was glad to hear the monthly rate to rent the tower for the emergency services was lowered from $1,700 to $850. He said that makes it much more reasonable, and no longer necessary to seek land and build a new tower.

 

White County Solid Waste Management: Council President Kramer said Carol Stradling will be retiring February 2019. The Board had their second reading of the budget that will now need Jasper County approval.

ADJOURNMENT
