Kristi Cooper presented a payroll change for DJ McMurry. She explained that resolution 2017-13 that his salary wasn’t correct and asked to dissolve 2017-13 and adopt 2017-14 with the correction to his salary. Bert added that on the last resolution they only increased it by $2000 and that he would like to give him more, so Bert suggested to increase it to $5000 since he hasn’t had a raise for 8 years and that he doesn’t receive health benefits or PTO. After some discussion Bert moved to approve the change for DJ and Ron seconded, motion carried 3-0.
Jay Schmidt presented payroll changes for B Foster (noxious weed) and J Adolph (R&B) for yearly merit increases. Bert moved to approve the payroll changes and John seconded, motion carried 3-0. Jay didn’t have anything further to report since they just met on Friday.
Break was called at 9:08 and regular session began at 9:13.
Matt Christenson came to present a quote from Home Lumber with Konda Glass for $2888.24 to fix the windows at the fairgrounds. Matt explained that they would like to get the windows fixed before the fair that is scheduled July 15th due to the brief time to get them installed before the fair. He also added he requested other bids but they wouldn’t be able to come out till Wednesday and this would delay the project being complete for the fair. John moved to approve the quote from home lumber with Konda Glass and Bert seconded, motion carried 3-0.
Break 9:40 and regular session began at 9:55.
