None due to missed meetings due to COVID


 Went over all accident reports from April to August. All had good outcomes, except for one with EMS still remains open.

Justin Noll brought up wanting to purchase snake venom kits, Corey Scott had no issue with that, but wanted to make sure training was involved.

Jamie told us that we will be receiving from KERIT Business the 2020 Dividend reimbursement, in the amount of 17,304.00 to go into the 147 fund. 

Corey Scott brought up the recent outbreak of Covid at the EMS location.  Said no one was hospitalized and everyone recovered.


Corey Scott addressed the situation with the holiday party, said it would be best to not have a big gathering for a holiday party, everyone agreed. Some ideas that were brought up to do instead were the following.

Jamie had the idea to average the money that would have been spent on the party and equally splitting the money amongst all county employees.

Corey had the idea to maybe keep the money aside for EMS or Sheriff’s department, to be used for someone wanting to further there education or training.

Justin Noll Suggested maybe distributing a turkey or ham to all of the county employees.

Stacy Waggle suggested maybe each department have their own Holiday party, that way they aren’t in big groups and are already around the people they’ve been around.

To be discussed further at our next meeting.   

The leftover Chamber Bucks drawing was brought up by Kalee, it was discussed to continue this and there will be a drawing at our next meeting.
