Peoria County Extension Board

Minutes – August 15, 2017

The August 2017 Peoria County Extension Board meeting was called to order by Earl Allen, County Extension Director, at 4:01 p.m. on Tuesday, August 15, 2017 at the Peoria County Courthouse, Rm 402 in Peoria. Board members present were County Extension Director Earl Allen, and Peoria County Board members Jimmy Dillon, Brian Elsasser and Andrew Rand. Others present included U of I Extension SNAP-Ed Educator Kaitlyn Streitmatter, and 4-H Metro Educator Judy Schmidt.

Earl welcomed the participants and thanked everyone for attending. All participants introduced themselves.

Programmatic updates were provided by Judy Schmidt and Kaitlyn Streitmatter with respect to their subject matter areas. Earl discussed and answered questions in regards to other areas of programming and services provided by Extension staff in the Peoria area.

Earl presented and reviewed the draft FY19 Fulton-Mason-Peoria-Tazewell Unit Extension budget containing the FY18 Peoria County Board levy request. After a thorough fiscal discussion by the group, Earl requested an FY18 levy amount of $112,000. This amount represented a 0% change from last year's request.

A motion was made by Brian Elsasser and seconded by Jimmy Dillon to forward the budget and a $112,000 levy request to Peoria County Administrator Scott Sorrel, Peoria County Chief Financial Officer Eric Dubrowski and the Peoria County Finance Committee with a recommendation to accept the budget and levy request. The motion carried.

Under other items, a discussion was held to explore the possibility of involving Advanced Medical Transport as a collaborator in U of I Extension's 4G STEM Camp summer program next year.

There being no more business, the meeting was adjourned around 5 p.m.

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