  • Issue #1: Financial Planning Group (FPG) review of ECSC recommendations in time for a March/April 2009 County Commission workshop
from dec 2 20081
From Dec 2, 2008
  • Recommendation #1: Move to request that the Financial Planning Group receive the ECSC presentation as soon as possible. Make it the only item on that FPG agenda. Consider inviting the Property Appraiser; Tax Collector; Sheriff; Supervisor of Elections; and Clerk of Court, and their top staff. The conversation that occurs among FPG attendees during and after the presentation is as significant as the presentation itself.

  • Issue #2: Now that the County Commission has the recommendations, where do we go from here?
  • Recommendation #2: Move to schedule a workshop in early January 2009 to discuss the ECSC report and recommendations. Direct the County Manager to prepare for this workshop by creating lists that divide ECSC recommendations into at least the following categories (there may be duplication within the lists). continued

  • 2. Items for the State and Federal legislative agenda;
  • 3. Items that have Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) implications;
