The packet presented has the drainage reimbursement credits and the pond and bridge credits.
John Schwab asked if fund 152 is a combination of the drainage and pond credits and Ms. Murray confirmed. Mr. Schwab also asked if the County would be able to provide the same kind of information to the board. Mr. Cartmell stated that the County would put that information together.
Mary Murray also noted that reimbursements will be paid out this month where there are funds available and reimbursements waiting. Mr. Cartmell informed the board that normally the County would also be sending out payment but there is no funding in basins with reimbursements requests.
Emily Skalsky wanted to confirm that the interest allocation policy discussion is still on hold. Mr. Bonifas confirmed that the HBA (Home Builders Association) wanted more time to look at some of staff?s proposals and continue discussion between them and staff first.
Item 4: Election of Drainage Board Chair and Vice Chair
Brett Wyss and Luanne Rubey will be term limited on March 12, 2011.
Brett Wyss believed that Jeff Johnson was interested in being the chair; however, Mr. Johnson was not present to confirm the nomination.
The four board members that were present were concerned that two of the board members that were not at the meeting (Jeff Johnson and Stephanie Harrison) and will be taking a second term may or may not be interested in being nominated for chair or vice chair. The attending board members did not want to assume that Jeff Johnson or Stephanie Harrison would or would not be interested.
It was decided to postpone the election until all board members are present.
