COMMISSIONERS' MINUTES <br />KITTITAS COUNTY, WASHINGTON <br />CO iI S S I OILERS CONFERENCE ROOD! <br />REGULAR MEETING <br />MONDAY 9:50 A.M. JANUARY 10, 2011 <br />Board members present: Chairman, Paul Jewell; Vice Chairman Alan <br />Crankovich & Commissioner Obie O'Brien. <br />Others: Mandy Robinson, Deputy Clerk of the Board; Lisa Young, HR <br />Director; Judy Pless, Budget & Finance Manager; Mandy Weed, <br />Administrative Assistant II; Kirk Holmes, Public Works <br />Director/Interim Community Development Services Director. <br />DEPARTMENT HEAD <br />Director Holmes requested permission to advertise for two <br />Engineering Tech positions. He explained that one position is grant <br />funded and expected to only last for approximately two years. He <br />indicated that a majority of the grant funded position would be <br />focused on design and guardrail work. He explained that as we let <br />these projects go by and put thein off, the County becomes less <br />attractive to State funding. He explained that the other Engineer <br />Tech position was previously Meld by Amber Green, who they recently <br />hired in CDS as a Building Inspector. He indicated that the position <br />is very important as it is responsible for doing the County pavement <br />ratings, which stems a lot of the DPW road work_ throughout the year <br />and plays a large part in the scheduling of future DPW projects. <br />The Board questioned if the pavement ratings could be done in house <br />by one of the County Road Crew members. There was discussion <br />regarding possible Union conflicts, but ultimately asked Mr. Holmes <br />to look at the DPW organizational chart and consider some options to <br />bring back to the Board at a later date. <br />The Board directed Mr. Holmes to not take anything out of the <br />organizational chart at this point. <br />KITTITAS COUNTY COMMISSIONERS <br />DEPUTY CLERK OF THE BOARD KITTITAS COUNTY, WASHINGTON <br />,41 <br />Gill `E GtivJ " <br />Mandy Ro,nson Paul Jewell, Commissioner <br />1/10/2011 MINUTES 8APPROWED <br />t 0r4 1 n <br />
