Carter informed the board that he needed $205,000 for fuel to continue running Public Works and $11,000 for material to patch the roads.

The board agreed to look into how they were going to fund these expenses.

Gothard suggested that with the Fourth of July coming up that they do as they did with Christmas and shut the yards down, but this time give the employees the option of working somewhere else if they don’t want to take the time off.

The board agreed Corbin’s request to look into a possible Budget Committee.

“We’re going to have to look into something considering the upcoming expenses from increases in Health Insurance and Medicaid,” said Abbott. “It’s going to be a tough, tough, tough budget year.”

Commissioner Charles Brock inquired about Amnesty Day.

Corbin informed him that it was taken out of the budget because the county couldn’t afford the $10,000 it took to run the yearly program.
