There was a motion to adjourn the meeting by Trustee Wagner, Supervisor Nolan going back to Public
Murday always expressed concern over
PUBLIC COMMENTS before meeting. Is purpose for July meeting to revisit
budgets approved today? Nolan states correct, there are funds inside Town Fund like Park Property which
should be in its own Fund, not Town. Sometime after Bill Wagner they went in Town Fund. Once accountant
instructs what to do, we’ll be in a better spot. This may require amending in August. Murday: Thought to confer
with council & accountant. Murday: Special Meeting was to pass budget so bills could be paid? Nolan: Needed
to be done by end of month. Striggow: Is Park Fund the only amendment for August? Nolan: So far, probably
will be on July agenda to discuss. Russell: Are tonight’s budgets same budgets presented at last meeting?
Nolan: 1 change in whole entire budget, money moved to legal services. Russell: Does that mean 30 day lead?
Nolan: No, can amend budget during meetings too, not amend, change with same appropriations.
Russell: Motor Fuel Tax Funds, is there a line item for those or lumped together? Wagner: Believes it’s under
Replacement tax. Nolan agrees. Striggow: Wasn’t there always line item for Motor Fuel? Wagner: Thinks
always under Replacement Tax. Clerk Coffey presented last years budget, Motor Fuel, line item under
Supervisor Nolan states he will look into that. Russell: Can you comment about legalities of how money was
moved? Nolan: Attorney will probably be at next meeting, all legal citing statute codes. Russell: So your allowed
to move funds not reported at an Annual or Regular Meeting? Nolan: cites statute code, stating they are
moveable without general meeting. Supervisor Nolan apologizes, he meant they could be loaned under those
statutes. Russell: Will that be reclassified & paid back? Nolan: Yes. Wagner: It was always a loan. Nolan:
County deposits into 1 Fund, this is first year County offers more Funds. May be up to 4 accounts.
There was a motion to adjourn the meeting by Trustee Wagner with a second by Trustee Hellriegel. Voice vote:
