On behalf of the Development Authority, Mr. Brad Clarke requested the Board provide funding as previously agreed upon by a prior board.  Mr. Clarke stated a land purchase is needed to attract industry to our county.  Decatur County is often chosen for economic development due to their immediate availability of land.  Chairman Lane stated the board would research the agreement from the previous board and respond.

Overtime was discussed and several areas of concern were addressed, specifically Communications / 911, Sheriffís Office, and EMS.  Sheriff Elliott stated he had met with his employees and developed measures to decrease the overtime.  EMS Director Toby Roland stated overtime for EMS employees was built into their work schedule, 24 hours on, 48 hours off.  Director Roland was requested to develop a schedule reducing overtime. 

 

The Board continued to review and revise the proposed budget.
