Commleeloner Moreland stated the Payne County Elected Offlclals have operated as an unofficial budget board during the last two years. During the preparation for the Sales Tax the round table discussions the Elected Officials had were very beneflclal. The meetings allowed a better understanding of each other departments. The Budget Board would meet every month to handle the flnanclal matters of the County. This would allow all Offlcers an opportunity to understand the financial position of the County on a monthly basis and understand the problems facing each department. Commissioner Cook stated that he was not in favor of forming a budget board. He expressed concern that the budget board is being proposed after the sales tax election. Many people have expressed concern about the budget board. He felt Payne County was too small to benefit from a budget board and felt the Excise Board ehould control the budget. Commissioner Mitchell responded that she did not feel the slze of the County has any bearing on the succese of a budget board. Commissioner Mitchell called tot comments from the audlencm. Mr. Jack Downey crated he was opposed to the Budget Board. He preferred to current system of the ExcIeI Board. He felt a budget board would dilute the people's input. Mr. Darrell Stile8 stated he underetoo the need for theElected officials to eet together to discuss common problems and the operations of the County, however, he dld not think a budget board was necessary to accomplish that. Stiles was not in support of a budget board. Commissioner Mitchell stated that she the opposition she is hearing to a budget board le that Elected Officials want to give themselves a raise. Mitchell stated the elected officials salaries are published. Mitchell noted that Elected Offlclale have never drawn the maximum salary allowed by law. If the citizens do not trust the elected officials to make good decisions as they serve on a budget board, then they have an opportunity to vote in the next electlon. Mitchell agreed with Commissioner Moreland in that the Elected OffIcial have acted as a unofficial budget board in balancing the budget with the Sxclse Board. Moreland stated he worked ard to pass the sales tax. Moreland stated he felt the Budget Board would bring harmony to the County. NoW more than ever the County must be accountable for the monies at the county levml• Moreland stated he does not fill sales tax money should be used for rsIIeI or to enlarge services beyond the exImtlng services• The ialei tax money will be used for capitol outlay. Moreland stated the Budget Board would provide more checks and balances by allowing 8 elected officials to vote on the county budget instead of 3 appointed individuals. Mitchell explained that if the budget board is not successful the Board can dissolve it and return to the current procedure. Cook did not feel the budget board would bring any more accountabillty to the budgeting process. Mr. OllverKinzle, Excise Board Member, did not eupport a Budget Board. He felt the Budget Board ellmlnated checks and balances. Hs felt the cltlzene should underetand that under a budget board the elected officials will have completm control over the budget. In the past the Excise Board has had control. Kinzle took issue with the statement that the Elected Offlclals were doing all the work in balancing thm budget. The Exolee Board has balsncmd the budget and allowed Input from the Elected offlclals. Kinzle requested the budget board be delayed for at leset a year. Kinzle reminded the Board that by petltlcn thm tax could be rmcalled. Mr. Wallace Smith, Stillwater, voiced a concern about the budget board. He felt those individuals that are knowledgeable about the budget board would not support it over the Excise Board. Kinzle stated the Excise Board has scheduled Dr. Notie Lansford, OSU, to explain thm opera, lone of the budget board to the Excise Board in January. He felt the Commission should wait until the program ia presented for all interested persons to hear. Cook made the motion to table the Resolution until after the Excise Board meeting in January• Mr. Keith McLamore, encouraged the Board to study the budget board procedure very carefully before implementatlon. Tulsa County is currently experiencing problems. Bonita Stadler, Treasurer, stated she felt the Officers have acted haw an unofficial budget board and felt it was in the bes interest to proceed with the Budget Board. Stadler felt the elected offlclale should be accountable to the cltizena. Schleffer stated she felt everyone ehould completely understand the operations of a budget board before any decisions are made. Some of the advantsgee of a budget board is that all county funds fall under the budget board Jurisdiction. Presently the Excise Board haw no control over cash funds. A budget board can require all officers to submit eetlmetee of nmeda for caeh funds ee well as budgeted accounts and cash funds revenues can be anticipated for budget purposes. Schleffer stated a budget board will require participation from all elected offlclele. Schleffer felt all elected officials should be present before the final vote is made• Moreland stated he haw studied the budget board procedure and feels it le in the best interest of Payne County to make the change.
