Tessa Reece, Extension Office employee approached the Board with concerns for her position relating to the budget for the upcoming year 2019-2020. At present she is paid by the University of Lincoln and then the County reimburses UNL for 90% of costs associated with that. At present she is a salaried employee. University of Lincoln wants the County to change her to a Dawes County employee and pick up the total cost which would be approximately $46,000.00. After discussion the Board felt that leaving her as an employee of University of Lincoln may be the best choice and paying them the 100% reimbursement costs. This may be discussed further at the budget meeting. Tessa Reece left the meeting at 11:32 A.M. Also discussed were items in the Roads budget pertaining to reducing contracted services, crusher rental, motor grader, oil and grease, CDL and travel costs, and machinery tire line items to find savings. By decreasing some of these amounts they will shift the monies to pay for the Road Department bond taken out recently. Line item costs for juvenile services in the County Court budget and General Fund were reviewed and some changes made as those costs have been rising within the County. The Communications trailer is complete so reductions were made in that line item for General Fund and also in the Sheriff’s budget. The Sheriff’s salary was also corrected to reflect the correct amount set by Resolution. The County Attorney and the Child Support Office administrative assistant positions were reviewed and changed to reflect salary adjustments. The Treasurer’s budget was corrected to reflect salary amounts that were not correct. The Public Defender budget the line item cost for interim Public Defender was eliminated. The salary of the Clerk of District Court deputy was reviewed. The Board also reviewed the 2910 budget line item for salary amount paid to Lindy Coleman for E-911 addressing.
