Latest would be 2023.
End of Public Comment.
Sheriff Lesnik joined the meeting.
Commissioner Berry made the motion to add talking about the payroll system to the agenda. Commissioner Borner seconded the motion. Motion carried. Commissioner Berry thinks we should call Black Mountain and tell them it is not working and we want our money back and look elsewhere. Sheriff Lesnik said that he talked to Black Mountain and they cannot figure the 28-day, 171-hour work schedule for his office. Commissioner Borner has an e-mail in to Bob Denning and thinks Mr. Lesnik should talk to him also to see if they can come to a solution. The payroll system is working for the other employees and is saving a lot of time.
There being no further business the motion was made to adjourn. Motion carried.
