Judge Hunt presented the minutes from the April 30, 2019 Special Meeting of the Fiscal Court. A motion to accept the minutes of the April 30, 2019 Special Meeting was made by Magistrate Sammons, seconded by Magistrate Short. There was no discussion. All Court members voted in favor.

Treasurer Mary Conley began the Budget Workshop with the 2019-2020 Solid Waste Budget for review and discussion. Magistrate Ellis recommended a safe formula for weed control. Treasurer Conley requested the addition of a line item for $850 in the sick leave/retirement account to use if necessary to correct any miscalculations by the State. Permission was given by the Judge to add the line item to the Solid Waste Budget. Solid Waste Coordinator Angela Muncy informed the Court that all repairs are in the current budget except for a repair needed at Alum Springs, and that there are no violations at the convenience centers after the state inspections. Magistrate Sammons requested rewiring of the dumpster at Gose Pike.

Treasurer Conley presented the 2019/2020 Recycling Budget. Ms. Muncy informed the Court that she intends to be involved with the City of Danville’s 2020 Solid Waste contract. Ms. Muncy reported that she has allowed the ProLift contract to expire because it was not cost-effective. Ms. Muncy has decided to cancel the paper recycling contract with BGADD which will save the County $1,700 in dues.

Treasurer Conley presented the Animal Control Budget. Shelter Manager/Chief Deputy Warden John Hambel reported the Animal Shelter will need to replace their truck. Mr. Hambel will recommend an increase in dog license fees next Fiscal year.

Rusty Cox, Boyle County Building Inspector, thanked the Court for the updated fee schedule. Treasurer Conley requested a process for the purchase of Contractor’s Licenses that are issued from the Building Inspection office. Judge Hunt thanked Mr. Cox for his successful transition to City Hall.

Judge Hunt and Magistrate Cullen expressed their appreciation to EMA Director Mike Wilder for his extraordinary work on behalf of the County. A sign-up sheet for Code Red was circulated to the Court. Director Wilder informed the Court that the City of Danville no longer has a mass notification system and that he cannot communicate with the City of Danville for emergencies. Magistrate Gay recommended a salary increase for Director Wilder. Judge Hunt agreed to consider the salary increase including benefits calculations, which would be paid for with County funds, at a later date. Director Wilder reported his plans for an Active Shooter table top exercise for Danville High School to be scheduled in the Fall, as required every three years by the EMPG Grant, as well as plans to apply for another Homeland Security Grant.

Judge Hunt agreed to Magistrate Caywood’s request to extend a Workshop Meeting invitation to the entities that have requested Fiscal Court funding.

With no further business, Judge Hunt adjourned the Special Meeting at 10:59 a.m.

Respectfully submitted,

Howard P. Hunt III
