Monroe County Council 2013-03-26 Work Session Agenda

26 Mar

Here is the agenda for tonight’s work session of the Monroe County Council. The meeting will begin at 5:30 PM in the Nat U. Hill room of the Monroe County Courthouse.  Although public comment isn’t normally taken during work sessions, all meetings of the County Council, including work sessions, are open to the public (and the public is encouraged to attend).  Text in italics is my comment, not part of the official agenda.

I. CALL TO ORDER

II. PERRY CLEAR CREEK FIRE PROTECTION DISTRICT- Discussion of Increase in Cum Cap rate

III. COURTS, Bonnie Austin -Discussion of Filling Deputy Court Administrator Position

The Courts Administrator position was vacated when Angie Chalfant left position to become the new Commissioners’ Administrator. Per the county’s Hiring Review policy, the Courts are petitioning to be allowed to refill this position.

IV. AIRPORT-CONTROL TOWER

As has been reported in the media, funding for the Monroe County Airport (BMG) Airport Traffic Control Tower is in jeopardy by the sequester. If nothing changes, the FAA will terminate funding for the tower by September. At their last meeting, the Board of Aviation Commissioners indicated that they might approach the County Council to fund the operations of the tower locally. The purpose of this agenda item is just to give the Council an update on this possibility, and the fiscal impacts.
