Minutes –July 14, 2016

The July 2016 Fulton County Extension Board meeting was called to order by Earl Allen, County Extension Director, at approximately 4:00 p.m. on Thursday, July 14, 2016 at the Fulton County Extension office in Lewistown. Those present were Earl Allen, Extension Council representatives Amanda Woodruff and Kelvin Sampson, and Fulton County Board members Bob Bucher and Doug Manock. County Board Assistant John Young and Administrative Comptroller Audra Miles were also in attendance.

Earl welcomed the board members and thanked all for attending. All members introduced themselves. The minutes from last year's meeting were reviewed. A motion was made by Doug Manock and seconded by Bob Bucher to approve the minutes as read. The motion carried.

Earl provided an update on the operation of the Fulton-Mason-Peoria-Tazewell U of I Extension Unit.

Next, Earl presented and reviewed the draft FY18 Fulton-Mason-Peoria-Tazewell Unit Extension budget containing a FY17 Fulton County Board levy request of $177,000 that represents a 1.1% increase compared to the FY16 levy request. Discussion by the board followed with much emphasis on the state budget stalemate. A motion was made by Bob Bucher to increase the FY17 levy request to $177,000, a $2000 increase from last year, and to forward the levy request to County Clerk Jim Nelson and the Fulton County Board Finance Committee with a recommendation to accept the request. The motion was seconded by Doug Manock. Motion carried.

There was discussion about CAFO application for a 3995 animal units operation (8000 hogs). Public hearing yet to happen.

There being no other business, the meeting was adjourned around 4:45 p.m.
