Upon inquiry by Mr. van den Berg, Attorney
Yurko advised she will be doing a redraft based on what they discussed this
evening. She stated Ms. Johnson’s
reverted sentence indicates that the “committee shall be a voluntary advisory
board to the BCC with one voting member selected by each of the County
Commissioners by majority vote and the remaining five chosen by the
Constitutional Officers, i.e. Sheriff, Tax Collector, Property Appraiser,
Supervisor of Elections and Clerk of Circuit Court. If the Constitutional Officers are not
subject to the internal audit by the County, the committee shall be designated

Ms. Johnson stated she recollects that they were going to do two voting members from the BCC and then one member from each Constitutional Officer.
Mr. van den Berg stated the CRC can wrestle with the staggering of the terms or leave it up to the ordinance.
Attorney Yurko stated the subcommittee agrees to voting members being selected by majority of the BCC. She stated she feels they need to say “alternatively if the Constitutional Officers are not subject to the internal audit by the county, the committee shall be designated as five members selected by each district county commissioner.”
Ms. Johnson stated she would suggest adding “the committee members appointed from the BCC will serve an initial term of two years and committee members appointed by the Constitutional Officers would serve an initial term of three.” That would stagger the terms. She stated they then can add that if the Constitutional Officers are not subject to internal audit by the county, then they would revert to the original language.
Attorney Yurko stated she will try to do the ballot summaries by May 15.
Motion by Mr. van den Berg, seconded by Ms. Ohab to adjourn the meeting at 8:20 p.m., this same date.
