Motion carried.
The Board considered various aspects of the FY19 Black Hawk County budget. Finance Director Susan Deaton showed the Board a number of budget scenarios that included late changes in Sheriff’s Office expenses and Recorder’s Office revenues.
Moved by Magsamen, seconded by Laylin to increase Sheriff’s Office expenditures by $29,000 and to increase Recorder’s Office revenues by $25,000 in the FY19 budget. Motion carried.
After discussing various scenarios and noting that they would prefer to defer action until Supervisor Little could participate, the supervisors asked Deaton to present them with two scenarios at the February 15 budget session. Both scenarios would include a $2.5 million General Fund allocation for Country View and would use $500,000 in Debt Service Fund reserves; one would retain the $340,000 new phone system and the other would remove it. White asked Deaton to get fiscal information on instituting a program for 30-year county employees that would pay for health insurance for early retirement.
On motion and vote the meeting adjourned.
