County commissioners will meet at 3:15 p.m. Friday “for consideration and possible proposal of an ad valorem tax rate” for the 2012-2013 fiscal year.
Commissioners will meet in the regular courtroom on the main floor of the Brown County Courthouse. This is a special-called meeting.
Then, at 9 a.m. Monday, commissioners will convene for a regular session meeting. The Monday meeting will also be held in the courtroom on the main floor of the courthouse.
Nine items are on the agenda for the Monday meeting, including budget hearings for the upcoming fiscal year, and, as anticipated, a consideration for reinstating the county burn ban.
Possibly, Precinct 1 and 3 Commissioners Bob Clark and Richard Gist will present approval of anticipated expenditures, according to a procedure the court established at the Aug. 20 meeting. The state requires each county to establish a procedure so that funds can be pre-approvedfor officials leaving office at the end of a term.
Both commissioners' last day in office will be Dec. 31. Clark was appointed commissioner for Precinct 1 after Steve Adams resigned and was not a candidate for election. Gary Worley won the July 31 run-off and is unopposed in the Nov. 6 general election, so, he will be sworn into office Jan. 1. Gist lost the run-off election to Wayne Shaw, and Shaw is also not opposed in the general election and will be sworn into the Precinct 3 position Jan. 1.
Other items on the agenda for consideration and possible approval include:
• Polling locations for the Nov. 6 election;
• Funding for part-time workers to work during the election;
• Reappointment of three people to the Brown County Child Welfare Board;
• Possible equipment purchase, requested by Bob Beadel, constable for Precinct 1;
• Tax resale deed on a little more than a fourth of an acre in the Coggin addition.
