SEMINOLE COUNTY COURTHOUSE, SECOND FLOOR, SUPERIOR COURTROOM
THURSDAY, OCTOBER 6, 2011
The Seminole County Board of Commissioners held a Called Meeting for the purpose of adopting the 2011 Millage on Thursday, October 6, 2011 in the Superior Courtroom located on the second floor of the courthouse. Those present were, Chairman Tommy Rogers, Vice-Chair Dell Shingler, Commissioner Brenda Peterson, and Commissioner Roger Lane. The county employees and citizenry were well represented. County Manager/Clerk Donna Jones and Commissioner Scott Miller were absent.
The Called Meeting was called to order by Chairman Tommy Rogers.
The invocation was offered by Commissioner Roger Lane.
The proposed 2011 Millage rates presented for adoption are as follows:
The motion to approve the millage rates as presented was made by Commissioner Dell Shingler and seconded by Commissioner Roger Lane. Motion passed.
The county’s millage rate has remained 0.013420 for four (4) years in a row. The school board’s millage rate remained the same as last year and the library’s millage rate was slightly reduced from the 2010 rate of 0.000764 resulting in a slight overall reduction of millage from 2010 of 0.000015.
Commissioner Rogers asked Amos Sheffield to step to the podium concerning the talk of County Manager Donna Jones’ raise. Judge Sheffield expressed his concern about the employees not receiving a COLA raise for the past several years and said it was unfair to the County employees. Also speaking were Earlene Bramlett, Heath Elliott, Maria Ricketson, Jeff Grice, Charles Avery, C.J. Hodge and James Register.
Commissioner Roger Lane then spoke on the subject stating the budget sessions did not mention the raise on County Manager Jones and he felt 20% was excessive. Commissioner Lane made a motion to reduce Donna Jones’ salary by 10% but could not get a 2nd therefore the motion failed.
With no further business to discuss, the meeting was adjourned on a motion made by Commissioner Brenda Peterson, seconded by Commissioner Dell Shingler, with Chairman Tommy Rogers voting yes.
