Tyler Ellsworth with KutakRock Law met with the Board and a Zoom called was conducted to include David Arteberry with Stifel Public Finance to make introductions to all the Board members and to discuss financing for the new law enforcement center. Commissioner Bramhall and County Clerk Sandra Wilson have had a copy of Zoom meetings with Mr. Ellsworth and Mr. Arteberry discussing the possible financing options. Leasehold Certificates of Participation or Private Placement Lease are the options the Board will likely be moving forward with. The Board will need to decide how much funding will be necessary and then a Notice of Intent will be published in the newspaper for 2 consecutive weeks. The information needed for the Notice of Intent is the total anticipated project cost and the total anticipated upfront contribution being made by the County. As soon as the architect and CM at Risk provide that information, the Board will be able to move forward. Both Mr. Ellsworth and Mr. Arteberry have submitted contracts for services to be entered into. The Board has taken no action on those contracts at this time.

Matt and James with Network Computer Solutions met with the Board to discuss the IT Incident that occurred last week. Our CIC server basically quit performing and we were without the tax or AP software for about 2 days. An onsite tech was sent up the day following the event and spent the day trying to solve the issues. County Treasurer Jami Ellenbecker voiced frustrations with communication and feels that we often get put between the software vendors and the IT techs which often delays resolution of our issues for days and sometimes weeks. Matt said that this issue definitely needs to be addressed and the team would get together to see how this can be streamlined. NCS currently has a tech come to the courthouse every Thursday and will look into adding an additional day for a tech to be onsite. A new server will be quoted that can handle the increased workload created by the new CIC software and we will move forward with replacing the server at this time.

Keith Bramhall moved, seconded by Fritz Blaske to go into executive session per KSA 75-4319(b)(1) to discuss non-elected personnel – payroll with the Board, Sheriff Tim Ackerman, Deputy County Clerk/Payroll Clerk Sammi Jackson and County Clerk Sandra Wilson present to return to open session in the Board meeting room at 11:45 a.m. Unanimous.

Special payroll request for the Sheriff’s office has been denied.

Keith Bramhall moved, seconded by Fritz Blaske to adjourn the meeting at 12:04 p.m. The next regularly scheduled meeting will be held on Monday, July 18th at the Marshall County Fair office to begin at 9:00 a.m.
