Health Department discusses rent, appliances

Tuesday, July 26, 2011

The Saline County Health Department Board of Trustees and the Saline Public Health Fund Inc. Board of Trustees discussed office space at their regularly scheduled meetings on July 26.

The board agreed to rent office space to Keough & Associates, an independent contractor, for the sum of $100 a month. Those currently using office space for free will also be charged a similar fee. This motion was discussed in the Saline County Health Department Board of Trustees meeting, but board member Stephen Allegri suggested it be passed in the Saline Public Health Fund, Inc. meeting. The board transferred the discussion to the following meeting and unanimously approved the motion.

The Saline County Health Department Board of Trustees also discussed the broken refrigerator in the community room, which no longer cooled. Board members agreed the roughly 15-year-old machine should be replaced, and unanimously approved a motion to purchase a new refrigerator for an amount less than $500.

The board also unanimously approved a motion to purchase a Culligan water system. The installation fee will be $75, and the board will pay an additional $35 a month to keep cold and tap water in the building. Board members agreed the water system would be more economical than the current practice of purchasing small bottles of water.

The meeting adjourned into executive session to discuss legal matters.

All board members were present.
