Zwanziger requested that she be able to purchase a server so there would be less disruption on the County’s main server for updates to the HomePro software.Should the PH/HHC agency move to an offsite location, this server, with minor cost to upgrade, could be used to manage the computers at a different location.The cost will be approximately $2,500 but Zwanziger said this cost could be recouped with bioterrorism grant money.The Board will act on this at tomorrow’s regular meeting.
Zwanziger proposed changes to the Local Public Health Services Contract.Zwanziger will provide the changes and the Board will act on this at tomorrow’s regular meeting.
Zwanziger and the Auditor presented information on a proposed CommunityResourceCenter.On behalf of the Decat Board, Judge Gerald Magee’s requested informed the Auditor that Decat has money available as seed money to start a center shared by several agencies with JeffersonSchool being a possible location.Decat representatives have visited with school administration and received favorable response.Decat representatives are also contacting agencies to see who may have interest in partaking in this effort.The Board expressed interest in learning more about this project to determine if this would be a feasible option for the County to possibly relocate the PH/HHC agency.
The Auditor provided past history on the cost to provide publications for the Law Library.The local bar association has dropped several publications over the past couple of years due to information becoming available over the internet.The association has requested that the County provide a computer, printer and internet service to be able to access this information from the courthouse law library.The cost to run Cat5 wiring will be under $300.The Auditor is waiting on a quote for a computer and printer.The cost to provide this service should be lower than the cost to operate the law library over the past years.
The Board discussed the cost to fund 100% of the Elderly and Disabled Tax Credit.The state is funding 94% for FY07.The cost is approximately $2,400 for the government agencies within the County to make up the difference that the state will not fund.No action will be taken to rescind the motion made at the meeting on July 17, 2006 to fund at the same level as the state is funding the County.
