  1. PUBLIC COMMENT: Ms. Pam Gilsenan addressed the Board requesting their assistance in protecting her children from abuse and neglect. Mr. Disney informed Ms. Gilsenan, that the issue of her children is in the hands of the courts and as previously advised on several occasions, the Board can not be of assistance until the court matter has been resolved. Ms. Gilsenan stated the court had ruled and that she was having a difficult time finding out what the ruling was. Mr. Gluckman will research the issue with the court and respond via mail to Ms. Gilsenan.
  2. Mr. Dick Dunn addressed the Board with concerns related to the "independent" cost studies for the courthouse. Commissioner Rennels stated that the County sent out 42 request for proposals and received two in return, one of which the respondent would not justify the numbers provided so the proposal was thrown out, and asked how Mr. Dunn proposes the Board force businesses to respond to the County's request. Mr. Dunn responded that "word on the street" was not to bother responding to the County because they already had their minds made up. Mr. Dunn stated that the figures in the reports are inaccurate. Commissioner Disney asked if that statement was based on fact or just the opinion of Mr. Dunn. Mr. Dunn replied that it is his opinion. Commissioner Disney asked if Mr. Dunn had any dialog with Mr. Spencer, Director of Facilities, regarding the reports and the figures they contain. Mr. Dunn stated he had not. Chair Olson thanked Mr. Dunn for his comments and stated Mr. Spencer would respond if given a chance.
