This meeting has passed.

Tazewell County Extension Board

Minutes – July 13, 2016

The July 2016 Tazewell County Extension Board levy request meeting was called to order by Earl Allen, County Extension Director, at 4:00 p.m. on Wednesday, July 13, 2016 at the Tazewell County Extension office in Pekin. Board members present were County Extension Director Earl Allen, and Tazewell County Board members Greg Sinn, Carroll Imig and Gary Sciortino, Extension Council member Rosemary Palmer and County Administrator Wendy Ferrill.

Earl welcomed the participants and thanked everyone for attending.

Minutes from the 2015 meeting were reviewed. A motion was made by Greg Sinn, seconded by Gary Sciortino to approve the minutes. The motion carried.

Earl presented and reviewed the draft FY18 Fulton-Mason-Peoria-Tazewell Unit Extension budget containing the FY17 Tazewell County Board levy request. Earl requested an FY17 levy amount of $159,000 representing a 1.3% increase. After discussion by the group indicating that county departments were faced with reductions this year, it was suggested that keeping the U of I Extension levy request level at $157,000 was more desirable.

A motion was made by Greg Sinn to forward the budget and a $157,000 levy request to the Tazewell County Board Finance Committee with a recommendation to accept the levy request at $157,000. The motion was seconded by Carroll Imig. The motion carried.

Under other items, County Administrator Wendy Ferrill explained to attendees why actual dollars collected sometimes come in less than the levy request. She was responding to a question from the previous year.

There being no opposition, the meeting was adjourned around 5:00 p.m.

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