a. ORDER 01-10-17-12/In the Matter of Approving a Certain Participating Agreement with Willamette National Forest, U.S. Department of Agriculture for Forest Work Crew Projects.

Morrison explained that in the past the Sheriff’s Office had a contract with the Siuslaw National Forest to use work camp inmates on projects on the Siuslaw.  They are expanding to include the Willamette National Forest.  She added there has to be an intergovernmental agreement with the Willamette National Forest.  She said the amount over five years of the federal legislation (February 2006) would exceed the amount the County Administrator is authorized on a contract.  She noted the contract was not to exceed $400,000 per fiscal year.


Terry Smith, Analyst, recalled the Board approved the budget for the Forest Work Camp, including $1.2 million in Title 3 funds that the County would reimburse itself for.  He noted without the contract, the County wouldn’t receive reimbursements.


MOTION: to approve ORDER 01-10-17-12.

Dwyer MOVED, Sorenson SECONDED.

Greta Utecht, Management Services, recalled this was the result of a reopening of a provision in the most recent contract negotiated with Admin Pro.  She added it was also to examine the Real Property Officer classification series with regard to its relationship with other positions that have similar duties and responsibilities.  She said it would allow for a three percent differential pay for engineering and training certification and would raise the real property officer series so it matched the engineering associate series.  She noted the money to fund this agreement comes from the road fund and affects five positions.  It would be no more than $12,000 this fiscal year.


MOTION: to approve ORDER 01-10-17-13.


Dwyer MOVED, Sorenson SECONDED.


VOTE: 3-0.
