Treasurer Dave Farrell was not present. Ann Foster noted that since we have had no expenses since the last meeting, the current checking balance should be very close to last months.
No deputy was able to attend. Ann asked group to jot down any questions, concerns, she will forward to Sheriff’s Office.
Clark County Councilor, District 2
Julie spoke briefly and took questions. For this year, biggest challenges for her are:
(1) Comprehensive Growth Management Plan
(2) Budget process for the coming year. County plans 0% levy so will have challenges prioritizing County needs and services.
February 16, 2016 is next hearing on the Comprehensive Growth Management Plan; Board will reconsider alternatives and adopt one which will then move to final EIS.
The Reflector is County’s Paper of Record, contract terminates April, 2016, Board will reconsider. New contract with County Executive Manager in next 30-60 days.
Based on questions from group, Julie clarified particular issues that are NOT Board responsibility: I-5 Bridge, Cowlitz Casino, and the proposed crude oil refining terminal.
Julie encouraged constituents to contact her with questions and concerns. Office hours are M/T/W. Email is [email protected]
