Minutes: Minutes from the previous meeting were reviewed. Motion made by Bill Center to accept the
minutes with a second by Don Gladden. All approved. Motion carried.
Financial Report: Reviewed and discussed.
Statistical Review: It was noted at the previous meeting that our “SAM” program has been
incorrectly reporting the in-house computer use for years. The number is actually significantly lower each
month than what SAM had been reporting. Loretta was able to generate revised figures for the last year
and provided a report showing both the numbers originally reported and the revised, accurate numbers.
On average, the originally reported numbers (3,553) are a little more than half of the actual numbers
New Business: The Prevailing Wage Ordinance was customized from a template provided on the
Administrative Ready Reference website. It was presented to the board and it was pointed out that the
new list of prevailing wages was just published this week. The ordinance must be signed by the board
treasurer who happened to be absent from the meeting. (Treasurer, Debbie Martin did sign the Prevailing
Wage Ordinance the following week as presented and approved). Jeanne Goforth made a motion to
accept the Prevailing Wage Ordinance as presented. This was seconded by Bill Center. Majority vote
yes, with one abstention. Motion carried.
Old Business: None
Finance Committee: Nothing.

received 2,000 NASA approved sunglasses to distribute for the August 21st total solar eclipse. Several
eclipse programs are planned. Loretta will attend Director’s University June 5-8 in Springfield.
