This meeting has passed.

Peoria County Extension Board

Minutes – July 29, 2015


The July 2015 Peoria County Extension Board meeting was called to order by Earl Allen, County Extension Director, at 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, July 29, 2015 at the Peoria County Extension office in Peoria. Board members present were County Extension Director Earl Allen, Extension Council representatives John Asplund, Pam Rumba and Peoria County Board members Carol Trumpe and Mike Phelan. Others present included U of I Extension Nutrition EFNEP Educator Margaret Cover, 4-H Metro Educator Judy Schmidt and Assistant Peoria County Administrator Mark Rothert.


Earl welcomed the participants and thanked everyone for attending.


Minutes from the 2014 meeting were reviewed. A motion was made by Mike Phelan and seconded by Carol Trumpe to approve the minutes as presented. The motion carried.


Earl presented and reviewed the draft FY17 Fulton-Mason-Peoria-Tazewell Unit Extension budget containing the FY16 Peoria County Board levy request. After discussion by the group, Earl requested an FY16 levy amount of $110,000. This amount represents a 0% change compared to last year's levy amount.


A motion was made by Carol Trumpe and seconded by Mike Phelan to forward the budget and a $110,000 levy request to Assistant County Administrator Mark Rothert and the Peoria County Board Finance Committee with a recommendation to accept the budget and levy request. The motion carried.


Under other items, U of I Extension programming updates were presented by Margaret Cover and Judy Schmidt. Discussion followed. Carol Trumpe informed the group that there is an emphasis on youth right now. Highlighting the breadth of the 4-H youth program to the Peoria County Board through a pamphlet and/or video would be very informative for the board. More discussion followed.


There being no more business, the meeting was adjourned at 6:01 p.m.


Minutes recorded and submitted by Earl Allen, University of Illinois County Extension Director, Fulton-Mason-Peoria-Tazewell Unit.
