CHAIRMAN’S REPORT

Chairman Greene advised that he has been signing a lot of contracts.  He also advised that he will be scheduling meetings with County Department Heads to make sure that he is “well versed” with each of their departments.

RESOLUTIONS

Resolution on the Agenda were then deliberated on.

No. 31 (Resolution Appointing Members to the Fulton County Local Emergency Planning Committee for 2020):  Mr. Stead advised that Supervisor Marie Born was interested in serving on this committee as a citizen member.

Supervisor Lauria made a motion to amend the Resolution to add Marie Born as a Citizen Member, seconded by Supervisor Argotsinger and unanimously carried.

No. 38 (Resolution Authorizing Certain Transfer):  Mr. Stead explained that the employee that worked in the Veterans Service Agency has resigned her position.  Veterans Director Daniel Engel would like to have a “stop gap” measure to bring back a former employee as a contractor for a few weeks until another person can be hired.  Because it was at the end of year, Mr. Stead suggested that Mr. Engel transfer the money from a Payroll Account to a Contractual Account

OLD BUSINESS

Supervisor Lauria referred to an article from the Daily Gazette newspaper where Governor Cuomo blamed the 62 counties for the burgeoning cost of Medicaid.  Supervisor Lauria said that he expects the Governor will push back the cost to the counites, “so be prepared.”   He commented that Fulton County has stayed under the tax cap, so the Governor should control his budget too.  He has a copy of the article that he will give to Mr. Stead or he can provide a copy if any other Supervisor would like one.

 

Upon a motion by Supervisor Fagan, seconded by Supervisor Bradt and unanimously carried, the Board adjourned at 1:20 p.m.
