5.         VEHICLE STIPEND POLICY:  On behalf of the District Attorney’s Office, Mr. Lancaster presented a request to add a vehicle stipend option to the county vehicle policy for elected officials. He explained that, current policy allows any county employee, required to drive 10,000 miles or more per year on county business, to be issued a county vehicle for exclusive use.

 

As an alternative to the current policy, the county has the option of giving a vehicle stipend to any elected official who qualifies for a county vehicle instead of requiring them to drive a pool vehicle or reimbursing them for the mileage traveled in their personal vehicle. Depending on the total amount of miles traveled, the stipend program may save the county money. County vehicles issued under the stipend would not receive governmental immunity if involved in an accident, which would make the county liable for damages. 

 

Commissioner Donnelly stated he did not feel it was appropriate for the county to offer “perks” to elected officials at a time when residents are struggling to cope with the poor economy.

 

Commissioner Johnson stated that while the stipend program would save the county money, up to $700 per year, it also puts the county at risk for liability and damages.

 

M O T I O N

 

Commissioner Donnelly moved that the Board of County Commissioners deny adding a vehicle stipend option to the county vehicle policy for elected officials.

 

Motion carried 2-0.

 

6.         COUNTY MANAGER WORKSESSION:  There were no worksession items to discuss.

 

7.         COMMISSIONER ACTIVITY REPORTS:  The Board detailed events they attended during the last week.

 

8.         LEGAL MATTERS:  There were no legal matters to discuss today.  

 

There being no further business, the meeting adjourned at 10:00 a.m.

 

 

THURSDAY, MARCH 12, 2009
