County Sheriff, Doug Bass reviewed the FY10 budget for the Sheriff’s department and the County Jail. The Sheriff’s budget has decreased, while the Jail budget has increased, due to lost revenue previously received from housing out-of-county prisoners. Bass discussed the possibility of becoming certified to house federal prisoners.
Dawn Mentzer, County CPC Administrator reviewed the FY10 budget for Mental Health, Case Management, Veterans’ Affairs, and General Assistance. Board discussed whether the Mental Health levy would need to be levied at 100% for FY10. No decision was made at this time.
County Auditor reviewed FY10 budgets for the Auditor’s office, Elections department, General Services and Substance Abuse. Major repairs on the courthouse elevator will be scheduled either in the current budget year or FY10. Repair work on the limestone on the outside of the courthouse will be factored into the FY10 budget.
Board continued discussion on the Substance Abuse budget and reviewed statistics from past years regarding payments for treatment, a non-mandated service for counties. Counties are required to pay transportation costs and attorney fees. Board reviewed the current Substance Abuse policy, which has a lifetime cap of $4,000 per person for all approved non-mandated costs for services. The Board discussed lowering that amount to $750, with a county funding cap of $10,650 for those non-mandated services. The Supervisors will ask the County Attorney to review these figures and draw up a new County Substance Abuse Policy, to be effective July 1, 2009.
Supervisors reviewed requests from non-profit organizations and after lengthy discussion, directed the Auditor to add preliminary amounts to the budget for FY10.
