Bill Van Vactor, County Administrator, observed the anticipated $1 million cost of downsizing of the financial transaction process. He asked the Board for direction with regard to what budget instructions to give departments regarding this project. Van Vactor remarked that it would be advantageous to spread this cost out over three years, noting that special funds may be able to pick up over half of the cost.
