Board member Seamon asked why the real property tax amount for DA1001 went up almost $50,000.00?  Supervisor Enjem will check on it.  Judge Brykailo explained to the board why the court clerk salary was increased this year.  He will not be here to do all the paperwork he does now.  Supervisor Enjem will look at Unallocated Insurance(A1910.4) to see if the budgeted amount of $23,100.00 is too high.  The supervisor asked if the Library Contractual(B7410.4) can be eliminated; we don’t have a contract for the library.  We do have a contract and board members were in agreement that the appropriation remain in the budget.


Judge Brykailo has submitted a letter of resignation, effective October 31, 2013.  He will accept a board appointment to serve the last two months of the year.  This will allow the board to appoint someone to the position in time for a training session to be held in either November or December.


Motion  by Enjem, second by Bond to appoint Justice Brykailo for the months of November or December.  Bond – yes, Seamon – yes, Snyder – yes, Enjem – yes.  A notice of the vacancy will sent to the Star, observer, and Pennysaver to be run twice.
