Commissioners present were: Thomas J. Windram, Chairman; James R. Carson, Jr.; C. A. "Lex" Deems; and Glenn C. Burhans. Others present were: James C. Watkins, Clerk; Donald W. Smalt, Deputy in Charge of Fiscal Division; and Pat Goetzen, Deputy Clerk.

            The Board generally discussed anticipated revenue for the 1979-1980 budget year.

            After considerable discussion the Board concluded that, before continuing individual review of the various departments, it needed a general idea of how salary expenses related to the proposed budgets.

            The Board of County Commissioners referred the matter to the Finance Department for further evaluation with a request that the Finance Department evaluate the effects of a general budget that would not exceed a total of 4% increase. The Finance Department is to report back to the Board.

            There being no further business to be brought before the Board, adjournment was at 4:00 P.M.
