DISCUSSION ITEMS:

-IT Project Plan Presentation: Albrecht stated that IT draft plan is first step to define where the county needs to be; will be ready to discuss it more “in a couple weeks.” Jen Grote, IT Director, was present but offered no further insights into IT plans.
-Library Board Appointments: Rick Brown, Acting Library Board President, presented new recommendations: Alan Krenek and Patty Lampman. Reappointments presented: Rick Brown, Paula Wilderman and Jill Duvall. Commissioners were previously provided with a letter with qualifications of all nominees; Brown shared that information. Commissioner Thayer encouraged the Library Board and the county to continue to improve their relationship (which the IGA should promote); Brown invited the commissioners and Albrecht to attend Library Board meetings or to set up another meeting, if they desire.

Citizen Marlene Groves spoke highly of Krenek; asked whether the nominees represent all areas of the county. Brown stated that the library is constrained (in their board recommendations) by who applies. Schroeder stated that 3 of the nominees serve as election judges (and he said all do a fine job as election judges), but if the library were to put an item on the ballot, these 3 people couldn’t serve as election judges (which is established protocol). The commissioners moved this to an action item for the next BOCC meeting.

-Resolution Supporting/Organizing 2020 Census Complete Count Committee: Krauth reported that resolution will create complete county committee for EC for census; 6 members; first census with online element; hope to bring back appointments at next meeting.
-Tri-County Bio Solid Waste IGA: deleted from agenda
