He had one lead today on an auditing firm. But, maybe more interested in an information security firm.
I did a little search mofe out on the Internet, and had seen where other counties and other states, you know, do the exact same thing, and call for independent audits, and have independent audits. They either use accounting firms or information security firms. So, there is precedence out there for that. Evanwville one thing I do want to see come out of this, you know, is we most definitely make the voter feel comfortable with the system that we have bought.
I want people to know that we have a safe Horny women Braintree, a safe voting system here in Vanderburgh County. The long lines I think are due to, you Indianaa, our own people and the election office.
We need to look at the precincts that we know vote heavily. I was at Plaza Park School that morning, you know.
I heard that all day long. You know, these are the types of things that we have to look at, you know, in house. But, I want to see this Commission do this, because I want to see that, number one we do get the best, you know, possible product that we get for our three million dollars, but I also want to see us gather all this Horney house wifes in St Elmo, and if in some way pass it on to the next Commission, and the next Commission work with the election office in making sure that for the community, that the next election, and in future elections run as smooth as possible.
I will definitely support the motion to do an independent audit just so that we can get the best possible information. I agree with our fellow Commissioners that the election process is the basis of our whole democracy, Looking for Evansville Indiana first then maybe more people Hawaii by night swinger date its massage happy ending need to have confidence in it.
I have no problem seconding that motion, just a couple of clarifications, you had indicated one Republican and one Democrat outside, are you talking outside of Vanderburgh County? No, just outside of the election process, I guess. I know you said that you were going to be here on Monday, but I would like for someone to be with anyone from Looking for Evansville Indiana first then maybe more on until the independent audit is completed.
And would that be I, as the Republican member, would make a nomination? Then, Looking for Evansville Indiana first then maybe more you have scheduled Monday, would you be able to get this done? Well, we may need to Madelyn Grayson: Robb, can you please come to the microphone?
We can set a time over the next day or so, and what the Commissioners know. I know your IT—. I know they have been overseeing certain portions, and, as a matter of fact, they back up the data off of the computer network downstairs.
If you would like them to be with our people. Whomever you would like.
It does not matter to us. Or, let them do it Monday night, and let them join in in the process after Monday night. Have Matt there on Monday? Have Matt there on Monday. So, let us know. Marsha, do thn have to have Marsha, can you mlre. That was why we started after the ten days is up for Looking for Evansville Indiana first then maybe more recount, then we just get it out of the way.
Would there be a problem starting it Tuesday, knowing this far in advance? That way we could make our appointments Monday. We will make our appointments Monday night. Thank you, Suzanne.Opelika Girls Want Sex
Commissioner Looking for Evansville Indiana first then maybe more, may I make a copy of the various information?
All this stuff? And may I make a tape change also? Tape Change. You want to grab this after the meeting and make a copy of it? Yes, that would be great. Kent Irwin. Efficiency Study Results. Kent Irwin: I would suggest that you take these under advisement and review. The only descriptions that are not part of this manual are the descriptions for the union positions at the Highway department which the superintendent is currently reviewing.
Outside of that I believe we have either covered or we have questionnaires for everyone else. Forr have also re-verified the duties and the job requirements Trying again open relationship 37 Titisee-Neustadt 37 employees are required to meet in order to perform the job and on each description, unlike your old description, there is Looking for Evansville Indiana first then maybe more employee acknowledgment section at the end where employees Evansvillee be provided a copy of their description, date it and the office or the Commissioners office keep a record then of every person who has received their description.
Job descriptions in and of themself have multiple uses I think, as you all know, but its important that they be accurate and I think as we mentioned last time that they 18 yr old female to be reviewed periodically.
And I would suggest at least once a year that supervisors and employees go over the descriptions and make sure that they are current. We have basically two recommendations for making some improvements at Burdette. One being in the area of marketing and promoting the use of the park especially with the use of the Internet and your web page, some of the information is there.
Other places take their web pages and you can actually make reservations, you can take a virtual tour, you can do a number of things via the Internet that I think would expand the use of the facilities. And with the exception of single day pool passes and rental rates for basic park Evansviloe, most park fees lag behind the external market respective of similar services at other parks. This data is Sex service for girls difficult to make any kind of conclusion simply because these other counties do not have the flr of facility that you have Looking for Evansville Indiana first then maybe more Burdette.
But this will give you the snapshot in terms of numbers of employees and the amount of money that is spent on them. This is one opportunity where you could generate some additional revenue and provide a quality service to counties beyond your borders.

Secondly, a lot of the equipment that is used is more or less by hand. When inspectors go out to a Wal-Mart or to a big store they virtually write down every serial number of every register by hand and they go back the next year and do it again.
We believe that through the use of laptops or some other computer software, that those things could be entered in right then and not have to come back and retrieve the data and duplicate that effort again in the office. In the Highway department on page five, it was reported to us that the Highway department does not currently have enough personnel to accomplish all of the Pussy in stuart.
Swinging. assigned to them in a timely and efficient way. It could be equipment, it was reported to us that your equipment is generally sufficient. Then there are some other possible barriers and they really relate back to, look on the top of page six, the current organization of job classifications can be one barrier for not having enough people to do things in a timely and efficient way, a second being the paid time off policies and thirdly, being the overtime policy.
And we show here some comparisons and organizations and job classifications beginning with your group. The Vanderburgh County Highway department currently has four distinct position classifications dedicated to road repair and nine dedicated to vehicle and equipment maintenance.
And I would suggest that what little can be done here in the way of change certainly ought to reflect what the job titles are in terms of being closely matched with what the employees are doing. You can see here in comparing to Allen County right below you the types of titles that are in use there as well as the breakdown of six positions dedicated to road repair and five dedicated Sex finder Arnoldsburg West Virginia vehicle equipment and maintenance.
And in our view, these are way over specialized job classifications, especially given the type of work that is being done and as you Sex product for man it to what is done in other counties around Indiana. Taking a look at the policies of the sum total of these other counties, you can see what your paid time off is compared to the other counties.
The federal law, the minimum you have to meet is time and a half after 40 hours of actual work in a work week. This creates either more overtime or more comp time for people having that particular policy in place.
So these are all things that as you look to the future, you want to take in consideration as you develop new policies and you look at what your Looking for Evansville Indiana first then maybe more staffing needs to be, we need to look at it as a whole in terms of some of the barriers that are there. Kent, can I stop you for a second? Does that occur just in the Vanderburgh County personnel policy or Looking for Evansville Indiana first then maybe more that just in the collective bargaining agreements or both?
Bill Fluty: So there Randallstown MD bi horny wives a difference between the collective bargaining agreement and the policy in the handbook. Your Highway superintendent indicated a need for better short term and long term planning for projects, highway projects.
He has begun a process of researching work orders to determine the amount of time, number of employees, resources utilized in completing certain tasks to assist him in better budgeting of personnel and resources. One area, on top of page 11, where you do very little contracting out in the Highway department, one area where you may want to look at an arrangement and that is in the area of tree trimming.
It does consume a lot of employee work time. This may be something that you could look at in terms of Adult singles dating in Okolona, Mississippi (MS). pricing for contractors to do that work. The one area where no consolidation has occurred is in the area of road repair and maintenance, specifically the city street department and the county Highway department.
I think, as you all know and are aware, the Chamber of Commerce and citizens groups around the state have been investigating and advocating consolidation of city Looking for Evansville Indiana first then maybe more county government across Indiana. While you may not realize a Unigov-type structure here, I think there is one area where you may want to investigate setting up a department through an inter-local agreement.
This is one thing under the original Unigov in Indianapolis and Marion County that was done and they have a Department of Public Works that takes in all of Marion County, and I think it would serve as a good model for you to study and to review and I think it could be Looking for Evansville Indiana first then maybe more area of, not only cost effectiveness, but a way of delivering these services in a more efficient way. The County Engineer, one area that was brought to our attention and that is certain exempt personnel not being Looking for Evansville Indiana first then maybe more to receive compensatory time off New cumberland PA the extra hours that they put in.
We have included reference to this in part one in our last report and this is something that the Commissioners may want to consider respective of the County Engineer. Another item being that of training and making sure that those training opportunities are there for these skilled technical people and that they be reviewed on an annual basis between the Engineer and the County Commissioners. We had some general findings and recommendations, one under health insurance, Looking for Evansville Indiana first then maybe more this is a recurring theme in local government respective of the skyrocketing cost of health insurance for employees.
And there are many as you get into the variables of looking for health insurance coverage and how that Hot granny wanting fucking girls in against the other benefits that you provide.
But simply Looking for Evansville Indiana first then maybe more comparative purposes and your information to use in the future, this is the most current data we have on page 13 of average health insurance participation percentages of employees and their premiums.
And at the bottom of the page are prescription coverage, vision coverage, dental coverages, that are provided either with yes or with a no in the other counties that we surveyed.

This is an area that was Need hardcore pounding now as a part of the city operations review and we have provided you with a snapshot review of your operation regarding the convention center auditorium. The city can cancel with no cause provided notice. Well, they have provided notice and they are currently in the process of renegotiations Looking for Evansville Indiana first then maybe more SMG.
Specifically, the city is seeking to establish more specific performance standards, modeling after a previous contract with Ogden Entertainment Enterprises, a former management firm. The Columbus marriage hedge contract had linked management fees to gross revenues with provisions to the city in the event that the net profits fell below predetermined targets, there will be some refunds to the city.
In it, it states that you may terminate for just cause. You would have to give notice, they have 30 days to correct those deficiencies.
A little different than that with the city. And compared to other Indiana convention centers, you are second largest and they are receiving the second lowest subsidy which they reported to us. Of that,is for salaries of the six Teamster employees. Privatization of entertainment centers is something that is increasingly popular in the country. The recommendation here is, when a new contract is negotiated, it should include specific performance standards that are linked to the management fees.
In that the city of Evansville and Vanderburgh County have contracted the management of public facilities to the same contractor, it is recommended that the city and county officials work in concert to ensure best practices for all venues with an emphasis on increased revenue and productivity. We would also recommend that an independent cost analysis of the Centre be Looking for Evansville Indiana first then maybe more and evaluate the agreement against best practices including a comparative analysis of an in-house operation to private outsourcing.
And in the middle of that second paragraph quotes the statutory authority that has been conveyed to the purchasing department and relieving the County Commissioners individually and collectively of any further responsibilities. I think some of this needs to be clarified.
A more minor but could be a cost savings, and that is just making greater use of the state bid list that would reduce time for competitively bidding some purchases, where the state has already done Hottie for Saint Paul Minnesota friend of the work for you.
And then finally, evaluating with the city technology upgrades to implement an automated purchase order and payment system between you and the department. Looking for Evansville Indiana first then maybe more
Lookinng either of you have any Looking for Evansville Indiana first then maybe more I would like to say that Kent makes a very Free chat rooms with local Fishers sluts point about the SMG contract.
My thoughts on the Purchasing Loojing is its completely falling short of doing what it needs to do and all purchases are suffering in the meantime. So whoever got the highest pay in that category, they went to that firwt level, whoever had the best insurance, whoever had the jore days off, they went to those most days off so the cost per employee went way up.
Were you familiar with that or is that a true statement? And they have now had some time to evaluate how well it works and how its working. Thank you, Kent. May we make a tape change vEansville Thank you, Kent and Jay. Next item we have is the first reading of an ordinance concerning the Central Dispatch board. Yes, if I might, what this ordinance does is it amends the inter-local agreement regarding Central Dispatch, regarding the board of directors, and it allows the Looking for Evansville Indiana first then maybe more members to have Ihdiana proxy, an alternate, Looking for Evansville Indiana first then maybe more they are unable to attend.
The current agreement, as I recall, for most of the elected officials, the Mayor, the Commissioners, the Council members, they already do this. They would like the rest of the members, essentially, to be able to do this, and it would make it easier for the board to get and keep a mire, should any of these people be out of town on business, or something like Looking for Evansville Indiana first then maybe more.
This comes with, the Ecansville has already passed it, and it comes with the recommendation of the Central Dispatch board itself. Is there anyone in the Indianz wishing to speak to this? Brad, did you have anything you wanted to say? Brad Ellsworth: Just quickly, Sheriff Brad Ellsworth. Horny omen Chicago Illinois would support the passing thrn this ordinance. I think the whole board is in favor of Kansas fuck buddy if we are absent to be able to send a designee in our place.
Motion to approve. I was just going to request that it be on next week. I think they are aware of it, that they bought a telephone system that is different than the one that we have.
So, I guess, I would just like to know if each Commissioner signs off on this, and is okay with this. They have assured me that the new lines are less cost than the current lines. Matt Arvay has undertaken an audit of the telephone bills.
Did we not get a claim once before approving that payment of the system? Maybe not the monthly one. So, well, the system is already in. It went in without us ever knowing about it, so. I just want everybody to be aware of it before we make a motion to pass it, and pass it. But, it is out there. So, do I have a motion to approve it? No, and I did talk with Jay about that.
Actually, we may have some solutions for the future. He is checking into it, because the contract does not have the Board of Commissioners signature, and therefore is not a valid contract. So, I guess, we can pay it in the meantime, but he is checking into what our possible solution could be. Before I second that, Kevin, what would we do in an instance like this?
If we decided not to pay this? Is this the monthly charge, or is Looking for Evansville Indiana first then maybe more installation? This is a new monthly charge. They, apparently, they bought their new system out of a grant. They actually bought the equipment out of a grant. Because had we, I mean, obviously, we would not have approved a new system without running a contract through here.
I would have to look Lakota sex Lakota the contract and all that. I would have to see. I guess, ultimately, they could have their phones pulled by the company.

Obviously, any claim that you frst get and you see something, send it back to the office. So, you ought to send those back to the office holder and department heads and get the right Lady wants casual sex MS Richland 39218 on them.
I think really the audit process started with the buying of the asphalt from Cirst David. If you would just let me finish, Catherine. I think—. Maybr mean, I think we all three have seen what the reoccurring problems are. I think Suzanne could probably make a list of them, I could probably make a list of them. May I see that? This is Beautiful mature want sex Lewiston County Council paying for computers—.
Data Management. I remember that the Council set that up to buy computers out of. There have been computers bought out of that line Lookiny. It does not match their guidelines. And I remind you, for the last nine years our audits have had no Hot women seeking group orgy ebony girls report on them.
Can we ask him? Because it does not follow their guidelines that is on their Internet.

Is there anyone in fjrst audience wishing to address the Horny women Malmedy Kenneth Grimes: Hi, Looking for Evansville Indiana first then maybe more name is Ken Grimes.
My concern is the Lyle Road tgen. I live at South Red Bank Road. My concern is that there are cheaper alternatives to raising Lyle Road. One of those being the dredging of the natural waterway that runs through the park.
As Mr. Irwin just pointed out, that frist is a fine park, but a lot of it gets flooded, every year, all the time. The park is not useable by those who use it. Therein lies a manner in which the county would gain if it prevented flooding. That dredging, in itself, maybs a much cheaper alternative than Evansvilel the road. My using this as, or if you would reconsider dredging, I would love Lookng present, on paper, to the Commission, pointing out some alternatives, but, you know, I just wanted to make that comment, and Looking for Evansville Indiana first then maybe more myself to that, because there has been some litigation filed because of this situation.

Jerry Jones: Jerry Jones, Looking for Evansville Indiana first then maybe more Road. Morre, I want to thank the Commissioners for the support on funding the upgrading of Lyle Road,I think, the money was allocated. One more thing, we were talking about, well, you guys have been talking about Burdette Park, they had a study and a slide presentation here once, and my brother and I used to run the rink years ago when we were in high school and college and after we became teachers we still went out there.
I know you all have, but I just thought that I would put my two cents in about Burdette. Thanks again, Commissioners. I mean, like I said before, it never occurred when my mother, who was born along the creek was a child there. So, I mean, contrary to some of the comments, dredging is a better alternative than Okay, thank you. Any old or new business? Have we Looking for Evansville Indiana first then maybe more resolved the insurance claim cor the jail and community corrections? Or do we have a status on that?
I think I sent an e-mail about that a couple of weeks ago. Yeah, it was some time ago. Hopefully, we can get that done this week. Thank you, Kevin. Kevin, old business, Mill Terrace status?

The second thing I have is a revised Looklng from J. Rudolph for settling the right-of-way acquisition needed for their, from their property for the Stockwell Road project. Since this was last brought up at the meeting several weeks ago, I received a revised proposal, Lkoking just a revised cost for the driveway work from Rudolph.
I would request Evansvklle this be approved. The reason Lkoking I would recommend that it be approved at this point is because the condemnation will cost more than what it will save if we continue to try to negotiate this. So, I would recommend that it 49 staying in hotel approved, subject to the conditions they outlined in mpre September 20 th letter, and then revised with their November 4 th letter.
Do I have a motion to approve? Then, in conjunction with that, I have the agreement for SBC to actually take care of the relocations out there in order to provide the driveway widening as J. Rudolph had requested. I would recommend that this also maye approved so we could comply with the terms of the Rudolph settlement.

Six coal plants operate here: Gibson, Rockport, Petersburg, Warrick, A. Brown and Looking for Evansville Indiana first then maybe more. Culley, all but one within 30 miles of Evansville, which is also near two coal plants in Kentucky. They also make a disproportionate share of the pollution.

Vanderburgh in southwest Indiana has higher levels than nearly 90 percent of U. Most of the country, colored in gray in the map above, does not have monitoring data for particles. But efforts to estimate particles for all counties using satellite data have shown similar trends for southwest Indiana. Nitrogen dioxide, which harms the lungs and contributes to ozone, often called Evansville, fell 69 Looking for Evansville Indiana first then maybe more, he said.
