County Auditor Kourtney Irlbeck discussed the Ambulance Emergency Preparedness grant. Ambulance Director Pat Gray would like to purchase defibrillators with grant money. The County would need to make the purchase from the FY16 Budget and wait to be reimbursed. The Board directed Auditor to confirm with Emergency Management Director Sara Anderson that reimbursement would be made in FY16.
Board reviewed manure management annual updates for Kennebeck Farms, Section 13, Roselle Township.
Ambulance Director Pat Gray met with the Board to discuss part time paramedic wages. Gray presented the Board with a comparison of 7/1/14-9/30/14 overtime wages of $8,957.58 and 7/1/2015-09/30/2015 overtime wages of $20,254.00. Gray estimates annual savings of approximately $20,000 by increasing part time wages. There is concern that the current union contract pays 90% of salary for the first six months, then 95% for six months, would changing the part time wages discourage employees from accepting full time employment with the county? The Board will wait to get more union input and readdress the issue next week. No formal action taken.

Schieffer updated the Board on the other MCO Providers.

The Board discussed the Courthouse Courtroom Remodel Project.
