The Board of Jackson County Commis- sioners met in special session at 1:00 p.m., Wednesday, July 17, 2013 in the Commissioner's Room of the Jackson County Courthouse. Chairman Glen Bennett called the meeting to order with members Larry Denke, Larry Johnston, Jim Stilwell and Ron Twiss present.

The billing from 3B’s Heating and Air Con- ditioning for installation of the new propane furnace and air conditioner was presented to the board. The billing was for the total amount of $13,954.11. Denke moved, Johnston seconded, that one-half

of the billing be paid at this time.

The draft 2014 Jackson County budget was reviewed. The board requested that the salary information presented be re-

vised. Discussion was held on setting up

a separate fund or funds to accumulate

funds for building replacement and equip- ment replacement. The board instructed that the $5,000 request from the Jackson- Kadoka Economic Development Group

request from the Jackson- Kadoka Economic Development Group be removed from the draft budget. The board

be removed from the draft budget. The board instructed that the $3,440 for Predatory Animal / Animal Damage Con- trol be removed from the draft budget. The board requested information be pre- pared on amounts budgeted for the past three years for revenues and expendi- tures showing comparison of actual rev- enues and expenditures with this information to be presented at the August meeting.

At 3:47 p.m., Denke moved, Twiss sec- onded, that the board go into executive session to discuss personnel matters. States Attorney Van Gorp was present. Vicki Wilson, Auditor, was present from

4:30 p.m. to 4:38 p.m. Mitzi Mitchell, Reg- ister of Deeds was present from 4:40 p.m.

to 4:42 p.m.

The board came out of executive session

at 4:47 p.m.

Denke moved, Twiss seconded, that Karen Schmitz be hired as temporary part time Highway bookkeeper at $12.25 per hour, that Jackson County pay $300.00 per month for her room, and that she be reimbursed mileage and meals at the Jackson County rate for reimbursable ex-

penses.

There being no further business to come before the board Denke moved, Stilwell seconded, that the meeting be adjourned and that the board meet in regular ses- sion at 9:00 a.m., August 12, 2013.
