Motion by Beardmore, second by Meiners to approve the agenda as presented with the addition of Elderbridge update. On roll call, all voted aye. Motion by Danzer, second by Schettler to approve the minutes of the October 24, 2016 meeting as written. On roll call, all voted aye.
County Treasurer Jean Seidl met with the Board to discuss a driver’s license issuance cost estimate originally discussed on August 24, 2016. Seidl explained that she is requesting a $2,300 salary increase to promote a staff member to Driver’s License Deputy, an additional $5,000 salary increase to be split among the remaining five staff members and to hire a new staff member at a salary of $28,750 plus benefits. Seidl discussed her top three areas of concern; security, confidentially and waiting area space. There is a possibility that some remodeling may need to be done to accommodate drivers licensing. At this time she is unsure whether she will need to hire a second additional staff member and will not be promoting an office deputy at this time. But would like to review the option in the future. The Board agreed that the new employee should be hired now and the current staff increases should come after legislation approves Carroll County to issue drivers licenses.
