Chairman McElhaney called the meeting to order at 9:07 A.M. on Monday, September 9, 2002, with two members present. Commissioner Johnson was absent. The Pledge of Allegiance was recited.

Jones made a motion to approve the following Consent Agenda:

  • Approve Commissioners Order Nos. 5050 and 5051. Orders are on file in the office of the County Clerk;

  • Approve the 2003 Phase Delineation Chart;

  • Approve request from the 946th Transportation Detachment of the Army to use the fairgrounds as an alternate assembly site; and

  • Approve applications for emergency vehicle permits as recommended by Sheriff Trapp.

Motion was seconded by McElhaney and carried.

The Board considered a request from Alta Sport with regard to county charges for support of the Lawrence Memorial Hospital Triathlon. Jim Whittaker, Race Director, was present for the discussion. At their meeting on June 3, 2002, the Board made the decision that Alta Sport must reimburse the Sheriff's Department for time actually spent by Sheriff's personnel on the event. Whittaker asked the Board to reconsider this decision since the budgetary concerns are not as great as originally anticipated. Whittaker also requested permission to access the marina during the event. It was the consensus of the Board that Alta Sport reimburse Douglas County for actual costs charged for the use of 3 deputies and that the request to utilize the marina be granted.

The Board discussed proposals received in response to the County's solicitation for depository and banking services. Jackie Waggoner, Purchasing Agent, and Pat Wells, Treasurer, were present for the discussion. Waggoner explained that seven (7) banks responded to the solicitation, four (4) of which have banks which have a Kansas charter or a main office in Kansas and has its main or branch office in Douglas County. According to K.S.A. 12-1675, these financial institutions are first eligible to receive active funds. A committee of seven (7) reviewed the scope of each proposal and invited three (3) first eligible banks for interviews. The committee unanimously agreed that Central National Bank provided the best proposal. The committee asked for authorization to negotiate with Central National Bank with respect to both features and cost. The committee will bring their final recommendation and contract to the Board for approval following negotiations. Jones made a motion to authorize negotiations with Central National Bank for banking services. McElhaney seconded and the motion carried.

Jones moved approval of accounts payable in the amount of $167,426.33 to be paid 9/9/02; accounts payable manual checks in the amounts of $309,944.32 and $230.00; payroll in the amount of $560,957.43; and electronic funds transfers in the amounts of $41,397.00 for FICA and $32,351.10 for KPERS to be paid 9/6/02. McElhaney seconded and the motion carried.

McElhaney moved for adjournment. Jones seconded and the motion carried.
