Gail introduced Heather Bombei who is currently Floyd Countyís Regional Community Health Consultant.  Heather presented the Board with the assignments of the five community consults.  Heather also informed the Board that the 3% hold on the LPHSC has been released and will be available for March billing.


FY 11/12 budget reviewed with no concerns from the Board.  FY 12/13 budget discussed. Gail informed the board that wages/salaries were budgeted for an increase of 1.5% on wages/salaries up to $32,000.


The Board reviewed the LPHS Contract for FY 13.  Gail suggested we continue with putting these dollars towards the same activities we did in FY12 which were homemaker, Home Care Aide, Case Management, nursing, and Screening and Assessment.  These funds are always spent well before the end of the fiscal year.  The




Board was in agreement. Motion made by Rosemary Tobin to approve the activities selected for FY13 LPHSC, seconded by Gaylon Hicok, motion carried.


Gail informed the Board of the $800.00 incentive for the FY12 LPHSC and activities required to receive these funds.  The activity was to address and monitor the progress in achieving health improvement goals and strategies that have occurred since the completion of the CHNA & HIP report in February 2011.  Activity completed and the $800.00 will go towards HCA, homemaker, nursing services.


Tobacco Grant was discussed and Gail informed the Board that she has been in discussions with Butler County on ways to partner in writing and receiving this grant.  Gail requested the Boards approval and support in moving forward with this partnership with Butler County.  Gail will keep the Board posted on progress.  Board supported this approach.
