Council passes several items

Tuesday, June 8, 2010

The Clay County Council dealt with numerous financial decisions during Monday's meeting.

Among agenda items passed included:

* An additional appropriation of $6,000 for contract services within the Surveyor's Cornerstone Fund for the purpose of hiring an intern from Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology to assist in finding cornerstones during the summer,

* A $1,000 transfer between line items within the Aviation Fund for maintenance purposes,

* The second reading of an ordinance establishing a non-reverting Clay County Redevelopment Commission Tax Abatement Fee Fund,

* Minor changes to the Veterans Service Officer job description, most notably changing the designation from full-time to part-time because the job had never required the amount of hours needed to be classified as full-time,

* Statements of benefits for all current personal property and real estate tax abatements, as the council found all the businesses to be in compliance, and

* Separate salary ordinances for the Emergency Preparedness Coordinator with the Clay County Health Department and a full-time clerical position at the Clay County Justice Center. The clerical position was created after streamlining responsibilities from four part-time employees, and the council also approved the job description for this position as well.

Meanwhile, the council tabled a pair of amended salary ordinances for Community Corrections and the Child Support Division until a later date not specified during the meeting.

Council members agreed more information and explanation about the requests is needed from representatives of each department -- who were not in attendance -- before a final decision could be made in the matters.

A special meeting of the Clay County Council will be conducted at 9 a.m., Monday, June 21, in the Commissioners' Courtroom at the Clay County Courthouse for the purpose of discussing additional appropriations.

The council's next regular meeting will take place at 6 p.m., Tuesday, July 6, in the same location.

I struggle to understand why Clay County needs a Airport.
