This 3rd day of December, 2018, the Board of County Commissioners met in regular session with the following members present: Roy Klopfenstein, Mark Holtsberry and Cindy Peters, Clerk. Absent: Tony Zartman.



MEETING NOTES OF APPOINTMENTS

County Auditor Claudia Fickel explained her budget to Holtsberry. Fickel reiterated her point for needing additional funding for her office. She then informed the commissioners that she will be doing away with monthly payroll and only doing bi-weekly payroll for the following entities: Veterans Board and employees, Law Library, Board of Elections Board, Estate Tax Commissioner, Coroner and the Sheriff’s employees.



County Treasurer Lou Wannemacher brought her budget down for the commissioners’ review. Klopfenstein thanked Wannemacher for working with them on the budget. Wannemacher informed the commissioners that she is testing a cash discriminator machine in her office. Wannemacher noted that counterfeit money is getting so easy to pass through anymore. It would be up to the county to make it whole if we get any counterfeit dollars. Wannemacher pointed out the need to keep her office safe and she feels that it is something that we should look into. The cost is around $2,495 for the machine and DRETAC funds can pay for the machine. Klopfenstein noted that if it is within the budget and it would eliminate risk, then she has the commissioners’ support.
