Todd Samuelson and Heidi Amspaugh discussed an updated overall financial plan from the one they completed in April 2016.

The plan will analyze the cash flows of the various funds in the county and look at future needs and wants.

Commissioner Kevin Overmyer said: “It (the plan) helped us years ago when we increased our Cum Cap rate and the Cum Bridge rate because of this financial analysis. We were behind on our future needs. Overmyer also suggested that they review what items for the prison are still being funded from the General Fund and determine how much could be transferred to the Special SAI.

Samuelson said: “To improve the position of the county before the next legislative session, all this information presented would certainly be very useful, not only to those who make the decision, but also to those who manage the general fund here as well as everything else. great funds. »

It was unanimously approved by the commissioners to enter into an agreement with Baker Tilly for the overall financial plan. The price should be $30,000 to $35,000.
