Riley County treasurer Shilo Heger reported the county is up about $425,000 in revenue for July 2019 compared to the same month last year.
The generated revenue (as of the end of July) is $50.3 million, Heger said. The total revenue was $49.9 million in July 2018, she said, which is a 0.8% increase.
County budget and finance officer Tami Robison also gave cash flow reports, saying that total expenditures for July were $347,572. The 2019 ending unencumbered cash balance is $162,207, she said.
The commission approved a series of measures presented by Jennifer Green, Riley County Health Department director.
Commissioners first approved the health department applying for a general grant from the Kansas Health Foundation. The grant awards are up to $25,000.
The commission also approved the health department receiving $15,000 from the Memorial Hospital Association, an independent nonprofit foundation. The money would provide vaccines for uninsured adults and give families postpartum maternal and infant services.
The commission also approved an amendment to an agreement between the health department and Netsmart Technologies, which provides electronic health record software.
The amendment ends the agreement on Oct. 31.
Additionally, Riley County Emergency Management Coordinator Laurie Harrison asked for permission from the commission to take ownership of an “accountability trailer” from the Regional Homeland Security Council.
The council gave the trailer to Geary County in fiscal year 2014-15, but Harrison said Riley County used the trailer more often, especially at events such as Manhattan’s annual Fake Patty’s Day in March.
“We welcomed the opportunity to accept the trailer from Geary County,” Harrison said.
The commission unanimously approved the transfer of the trailer to Riley County.
The commission also entered into two executive sessions during the meeting.
Commissioners said the first session was related to pending litigation. The commission came to a consensus during the second session, which was about a personal matter of non-elected personnel, said Clancy Holeman, Riley County counselor. They didn’t take official action following either executive session.
