Commissioner meeting reports were given:

 

Commissioner Jennifer McCarty stated the letter from the Commission to the Governor and WYDOT Director regarding WRTA funding was successful and funding has resumed.

 

Commissioner Mike Jones attended the Sinks Canyon State Park Master Plan meeting.  Planning Department Supervisor Steve Baumann joined the meeting at this time and discussed HB 54 which will provide $50,000 per County to either update or develop a Land Use Plan.  The County is interested in updating their 2004 plan.

 

Vice-Chairman Larry Allen met with County Fire Warden Craig Haslam regarding the Wildfire Protection Plan.  Fire season is upon us with an abundance of cheat grass.  Several meeting have been scheduled next week with Sage West and AMR representatives.  Discussion is still needed on a transportation vehicle for Title 25 patients.

 

There being no further business, Jennifer McCarty moved, Mike Jones seconded, to adjourn the meeting at 10:15 a.m. and reconvene for a Regular Meeting on July 9, 2019.  Motion carried unanimously.

In another matter, Brad Meredith reviewed the current structure of the Vehicle Maintenance Department.  He has conducted interviews and recommended Lander Shop Mechanic Kenny Haslam be promoted to the vacant Riverton Shop Foreman position.  Larry Allen moved, Mike Jones seconded, to approve the recommendation to promote Kenny Haslam to the Riverton Shop Foreman position at a salary of $53,500, effective July 1, 2019.  Motion carried unanimously.  In an effort to bring the Lander Lead Mechanic salary more in line with additional duties that position will be responsible for, he recommended a salary increase from $49,207 to $52,207.  Lengthy discussion ensued regarding the tier structure and applicable salary structure for each position.  The Commissioners earlier denied moving the Lead Mechanic to the Foreman position in the Lander shop, as they envision Meredith to continue work as Shop Foreman in the Lander shop when time permits and they had discussion regarding applicable salaries for each job title.  Larry Allen moved, Jennifer McCarty seconded, to increase the Lander Lead Mechanic salary to $52,207, effective July 1, 2019.  Voting against the motion: Travis Becker.  Motion carried.  Meredith stated the vacant Mechanic position is currently being advertised, and for budgeting purposes the salary of $47,000 will be used for that position (currently being advertised between $43,000 and $49,000, depending upon experience).  He further plans to have one of the two Apprentice Mechanics in the Riverton Shop report to the Lander Shop for training and hands on experience, as well as to ensure that there are always two mechanics in the shop at one time, for safety reasons.  It was noted that Phase II of the Standard Occupational Classification discussion will continue when the Elected Officials meet on July 30th regarding salary compensation for each SOC.

 

Executive Health Insurance Committee member Jim Anderson presented several plan documents for approval.  Larry Allen moved, Jennifer McCarty seconded, to approve BlueCross BlueShield ASO Group Plan Change to add Cologuard Benefits, retroactive to January 1, 2019.  Motion carried unanimously.  Larry Allen moved, Jennifer McCarty seconded, to approve the Administrative Agreement with BlueCross Blue Shield and SpringBuk.  Motion carried unanimously.  Larry Allen moved, Jennifer McCarty seconded, to approve an Application and Schedule for Excess Loss Insurance with Gerber Life Insurance Company with all costs to remain the same.  Motion carried unanimously.

The FY 2019-2020 proposed budget was discussed.  Present in the audience was Sheriff Ryan Lee, Communications Supervisor Carl Freeman, Administrative Assistant Karla Davis, Treasurer Tom Majdic, Deputy Treasurer Jim Anderson and Building Maintenance Supervisor J.R. Oakley.  County Clerk Julie Freese provided an update on the public hearing held the previous evening as related to the E-911 Dispatch fund and the recommendation to continue at $0.75 per access line surcharge, which includes both traditional wire-line and cellular lines.  Jennifer McCarty moved, Larry Allen seconded, to keep the E-911 $0.75 per access line surcharge for the new fiscal year.  Motion carried unanimously.

 

County Clerk Julie Freese and Financial Assistant Joe Felix discussed changes made to the budget since it was advertised two weeks ago.

 

From the public hearing the previous evening, Freese stated representatives and supporters for the Eagles Hope Transitions had asked the Commission to reconsider funding the program for the upcoming fiscal year.  The budget request was $10,000 for the first time program request and the Commissioners had voted not to fund the request.  Clarence Thomas moved, Larry Allen seconded, to fund the Eagles Hope Transitions program $4,000.  Voting against the motion:  Jennifer McCarty, Mike Jones and Travis Becker.  Motion failed.

 

There being no further changes to the proposed budget, Larry Allen moved, Jennifer McCarty seconded, to approve the FY 2019-2020 budget.  Motion carried unanimously.

Public Health Nurse Supervisor Kathleen Laidlaw and Public Health Emergency Preparedness Coordinator Traci Foutz indicated the need to purchase a PortaCount Respirator Fit Tester for Fremont County.  Clarence Thomas moved, Jennifer McCarty seconded, to authorize the expenditure of $17,830 from the Emergency Preparedness Coordinator grant for the purchase.  Motion carried unanimously.

Vehicle Maintenance Supervisor Brad Meredith and Financial Assistant Joe Felix reviewed the status of four ambulances as related to a unit suitable for a Dodge chassis remount.  Meredith reviewed his earlier recommendation that MS-71 be transported to the Osage Industries in Lynn, Missouri when the other two remounted ambulances will be complete in August and ready to be returned.  However, something may happen before August and he may change his recommendation on which ambulance to take.  The Board asked him to make a final determination by July 23rd.  MS-220 is currently at the Osage facility; however, this unit was slated for the remount but it was determined that would not be possible.  Meredith stated that instead of returning the unit to Fremont County, and noting its major mechanical issues, it would not be usable in the fleet.  He stated Osage has made an offer of $5,000.  Larry Allen moved, Mike Jones seconded, to approve the sale of MS-220 to Osage Industries for $5,000.  Motion carried unanimously.  The Board asked for a final decision on July 23rd as to which ambulance will be sent to Osage Industries for a remount in August.
