Chairman Wilson directed a question concerning roll call votes to ADA Clark.  Clark said there is nothing in the case law (from the Attorney General) requiring roll call votes and it is up to the board.  Clark said it would be his recommendation to the board to do a roll call vote so it is made clear.


Motion was made by Schieber and seconded by Ennis approving updating County Hazard Mitigation Plan, NODA and authorizing Chairman Wilson to sign.  Brandy Fossett, Representative from NODA Counsel of Government presented the plan to the board.  Foster said this project is to update and expand the Hazard Mitigation Plan to a multi-jurisdictional county-wide plan plus Flood Management Assistance.  Motion carried:  Schieber, aye; Ennis, aye; Wilson, aye.


Jail Issues:  Undersheriff Steve Kelly reported the daily inmate count showing 112; the average inmate count for the month of January 2008 was 108.  Kelly mentioned Tulsa Time should be coming Tuesday or Wednesday to repair smoke alarm. 


Schieber questioned Sheriff Van Hoesen about cell doors; Van Hoesen said three cell doors are still not working (Schieber said not to pay until all doors are fixed).


Bruce Robinson, Chairman of the JFA, spoke about progress that has been made and people that have been hired since the board was formed about a year ago.  The main topic discussed was building a new jail facility; the size and location for the facility was also discussed.  Robinson explained in detail how the JFA arrived at that decision.  Robinson said out of the 77 counties in the state Kay County is one of only four counties that do not have a sales tax in place.
