County Clerk Kris Mayberry
Town of Lenroot Chair Dan Dums requested that the Finance Committee consider having Sawyer County pay the towns with County Forest acreage a greater percentage of the revenues from timber sales in the forest and suggested gradually increasing the percentage to avoid a drastic loss of revenue for the County. Those towns are currently paid 10%.
The Committee discussed with Veterans Service Officer Ray Boeckman justification for filling the Assistant Veterans Service Officer position with a full-time employee.
The Committee discussed the option of expanding the use of a motor pool as an option to each department having their own specific vehicles.
Following a review of all of the revisions made by the Committee to the proposed 2011 Sawyer County Budget the Committee determined to adjust the budget so that the result is no increase in the levy from last year by applying all of the 2009 General Fund surplus and adding any leftover portion of the surplus to the 2011 Contingency Fund.
The Committee scheduled a meeting for October 6, 2010 for a final review and revisions to the budget.
