Kristi Cooper presented 2 quotes from Komtech ($3207.21) and Postalocity ($2453.61) for mailing the RNR notices. She explained that the quote was an estimate at this time since she wouldn’t know for sure yet how many notices would need to be sent if the County exceeded the RNR. The total cost could be less and would be only sent if taxing districts exceeded the RNR for their 2023 budgets and that SB13 regulates the new law. After some discussion Bert moved to approve the quote from Postalocity in the amount of $2453.61 and John seconded, motion passed unanimously. Minutes from the last meeting were presented for signatures.
