5 p.m.
County Administration Building

Call to Order
Chairman Carlene Gatting called the County Commissioner's meeting to order at 1:45 p.m.  Commissioners Lenny Jason, John Alley, Tristan Israel and Les Leland were present.  

Also in attendance were County Manager Russell Smith, Ex. Assistant Martina Thornton, County Treasurer Noreen Mavro Flanders, Asst. Treasurer Carol Grant and Joanie Ames of MVTV.

FY2010 Budget Transfers
Russell explained the FY2010 Budget Summary and the Budget Transfer Sheet presented to the Commissioners. First section of the Transfer Sheet reflects transfers within each department and the transfers balance out, the second section shows inter department transfers and the third section is a supplemental budget. If the supplemental budget gets approved the surplus in FY2010 budget will increase by $8,728.02 to total of $53,307.01. This also calculates in decreases in expense and increases in the projected revenue as shown on the Summary sheet.

Under Vineyard Health Care Access Program there is $35,975.02 in extra money voted by the town extra for the program and it is being distributed to the different lines as part of the supplemental budget.

There has been correction on the first page under Administration Building – the forth line should read “Comprehensive Building Insurance” and on the second page under Integrated Pest Management - the fifth line should read “Unemployment Taxes”.

Carlene asked about the $3700 in Parking Clerk’s income. Carol said that under the Parking Clerk’s supplemental budget is reflected the estimated $3,700 extra income from processing the parking tickets in house for part of the fiscal year, which will cover some of the expenses of bringing the files over from Plymouth County.

Carlene asked about the supplemental budget for the Airport. Noreen explained that the Airport had $2,360,590 in the unreserved fund balance account at the beginning of the fiscal year, they had a Supplemental Budget No.1 in the amount of $1,184,875 approved earlier this year and now they would like to have a $108,000 approved as Supplemental Budget No.2, which would leave $1,175,715 in the Airport’s unreserved fund balance account.

John/Tristan moved to approve the presented transfers with corrections. So voted. All in favor.

Russell said that he will present the proposed budget for FY2011 at the next meeting.

Tristan asked for the Year to Date versus Budget reports to be given to the County Commissioners quarterly.

John/Tristan moved to adjourn the meeting at 2:05 p.m. All in favor.
