Contract dated 10/21/16 approved by a vote of 2-1. Commissioner Ross voted against due to lack of confidence in process that was followed with this contract.
*New auditing firm: County Manager Ed Ehmann proposed change from Edie-Bailey to Rubin Brown; county received 4 bids; will save approximately $60,000. Commissioner Ross was unaware that an RFP for bids had even been executed - he just received spreadsheet 2 days ago so hasn't had sufficient time to research bidders. Contract with Rubin Brown approved 2-1 with Commissioner Ross dissenting.
*November 18, 2015 BOCC minutes still not available to public. Motion to hire a professional to transcribe this meeting failed due to Commissioners Rowland and Willcox's lack of support. Commissioner Rowland and Willcox believe that the audio suffices for citizens. Written meeting minutes of the 11/18/15 were presented in the past but not approved because they did not reflect an accurate representation of what took place at the meeting.
