MEETING NOTES OF APPOINTMENTS

Randy Shaffer, EMA - Mr. Shaffer met with the Commissioners for his regularly scheduled update meeting. He reported he has a trailer titled in the EMA’s name and would like to transfer that ownership to the Commissioners. Mr. Shaffer also submitted a travel request for the LEPC Conference and NIXLE Conference. He reported the Hazmat policy, due October 17, 2013, has been completed and submitted. Conversation continued about Mr. Shaffer’s earned vacation and sick days. His date of hire was 10-23-95, being part time until January, 2003, when his position became full time. Mr. Shaffer noted that he has been submitting his time sheets to the state since his date of hire. Commissioner Klopfenstein requested that Mr. Shaffer provide copies of his time sheets to Cindy Peters for the purpose of calculating accumulated and used sick and vacation hours. The Commissioners also inquired as to what happens to the records from the dissolved EMA Board. Mr. Shaffer asked about the progress made on his health insurance eligibility. Medical Mutual has determined there was no ’qualifying event’ in Mr. Shaffer’s case. He will need to wait until open enrollment (May 2014) to be added to the County health insurance plan. Mr. Shaffer may opt to seek private health insurance coverage; however, the County will only supplement their own health insurance plan. The Commissioners requested that Mr. Shaffer list the Courthouse conference room chairs for sale on gov.com.
