* Commissioner Barnes recommended that the BOC and county manager investigate the need to establish a County Engineer position since we are no longer looking at Public Works as an umbrella office. We will discuss this along with the Sewage Treatment plant study review around August. Certainly we need a professional engineer on staff and this would save a lot of money in contract oversight fees.

* Grant Writer -- County Manager Charlie Horne is researching and we (BOC) see the need to go after some of the money our neighbors are obviously acquiring. I hope we do this soon!

* County Flag has not appeared in some time -- Manager Horne will check on this.

* "Welcome to Chatham County" signs -- signs are in warehouse awaiting DOT installation. Manager Horne will check on this also.

* Budget -- we appear to be ready to finalize the 2005-06 budget at our 20 June session. During the budget session, Commissioner Morgan proposed paying Economic Development Board member Jennifer Andrews $10,000 for volunteer work she performed relating to the county's industrial park. It was approved by a 3-2 vote, with Barnes and Cross voting against.
