I CAN'T TELL YOU WHAT A RELIEF IT IS AS A CITIZEN OF THIS COUNTY TO KNOW THAT OUR POLICE FORCE IS FUNDD AND THEY HAVE THE EQUIPMENT OR ARE THEY ARE GOING TO HAVE A START. I WAS LAST HERE ON SEPTEMBER 15TH AND I SPOKE ABOUT A SITUATION WITH MIKE STALKER. YOU ARE AWARE AND I WANT TO THANK SOME OF YOU FOR REACHING OUT PERSONALLY AND GIVING YOUR THOUGHTS.

I'D LIKE TO DISCUSS WHAT HAPPENED AFTER THAT. AFRICAN-AMERICAN 1 P.M. THAT AFTERNOON I HAD BEGIN ANITTA THE PAPERWORK YOU REQUESTED MR. BECERRA I GOT A CALM FROM, NITTA ASKING ME FOLLOW UP QUESTIONS AND I'M CONCERNS THEY HAD TO DO WITH POLITICS AND NOTHING ABOUT MAKING A CHANGE AND THAT SCARES ME THE QUESTIONS HAD I CONTACTED THE PRESS.

WHAT PRESS HAD I GONE TO AND WAS I GOING TO CONDITION TO. NO QUESTIONS ASKED WLO I HAD A SAFETY PLAN. WHAT WAS DONE AND HIS RELEASE DATE WHICH I'M TAKING THE TIME TO BE HERE HE IS WALKING OUT OF THE JILL AT THIS MOMENT. MY FAMILY ISUP SET FOR ME BEING HERE AND NOT LEAVING AND GOING TO OUR REFERENCE TO HIDISM FELT IT IMPORTANT TO COMMUNITY WITH YOU TO COMMUNICATE WITH THANK YOU IS AN IMPORTANT MATTER. WE HAVE FELONS JUSTICE SAN MARCUS POLICE DEPARTMENT ISSUED A PHOTO OF A GENTLEMEN WALKING OUT WITH THOUSANDS WORTH OF

[00:05:03]

WEARING A MONITOR WHY CAN WE NOT KNOW WHOP THAT WAS WHY CAN WE NOT KNOW WHO STOLE THE DOLLARS.

THESE MONITORS ARE NOT GPS TRACKED. THAT IS NOT WHAT IS TOLD TO US VERY MUCHES. WE EVER SENT WRITTEN NOTIFICATIONS FROM THE D.

CRIMINAL JUSTICE TELLING OFFENDERS ARE TRACKED. I LIKE TO TELL YOU YESTERDAY MORN I RECEIVED A CALL MY ATTACKER WAS RELEASED FROM JAIL A MONTH EARLY.

AS OF FRIDAY I WAS TOLD HE WOULD NOT BE OUT UNTIL OCTOBER 29TH I CONFIRM THIRD DEGREE ON FRIDAY WITH THE JAIL FACILITY AND WITH MARK SMALL IN THE PAROLE DEPARTMENT.

YESTERDAY MORNING, 7:42 I GOT A CALL TELLING ME HE WAS RED TO WALK OUT THE DOOR.

NOBODY HAPPENED EXPLAIN WHY IT WAS MOVED UP AN AMONG AND I CALLED THE PAROLE DEPARTMENT AND FIND OUT THE TRACKER THAT HAY HAD UPGRADED HIM TO HAS NOT BEEN INSTALLED IN HIS HOUSE.

THEY DID NOT KNOW HE WAS GETTING OUT TODAY. THERE WAS NO EQUIPMENT TO TRACK HIM BEING ASSIGNED. NO INFORMATION PROVIDED TO THE VICTIM AND I'M BEGGING USE YOUR POWER AS A PANEL TO MAKE A CHANGE WITH TDCJ THIS IS NOT JUST A LOCAL ISSUE.

MA'AM. >> NEXT UP MR. DAN LION. THANK YOU JUDGE BECERRA AND GOOD MORNING, COMMISSION. I RECEIVED THIS FROM A PERSON WHO AM'S NAME I WILL NOT MENTION THE RETURN ADDRESS IS A U.S. DEPUTY SHERIFF'S ASSOCIATION IN MARYFIELD, VIRGINIA.

ON THE BOTTOM IT STATES THAT THE RECIPIENT'S NAME AND SAYS THAT QUOTE, YOUR HELP IS NEEDED TO GET BULLET PROOF VESTS TO OUR POLICE IN THE DANGEROUS TIMES BECAUSE WILL OF ESSENTIAL EQUIPMENT IS LACKING. DUE TO STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENT CUT BACKS.

>> WHERE HAVE I HEARD THIS BEFORE? YEA.

HOOER IN COMMISSIONER'S COURT. >> NOW I DON'T KNOW WHETHER OR NOT THIS ORGANIZATION IS LEGITIMATE. WHAT I DO KNOW, HOWEVER. SOME SENIORS IN THE AREA WILL RECEIVE THIS AND SEND IN MONEY THAT THEY NODE FOR FOOD OR MEDICINE.

WHEN ADEQUATE MONEY HAS BEEN GIVEN TO THE HAYS COUNTY SHERIFF'S DEPARTMENT FOR SAFETY EQUIPMENT. IN MY OPINION, THE SHERIFF IS PLAYING A HIGH STAKES GAME WITH COMMISSIONER'S COURT IN ORDER TO GET MORE MONEY. THERE ARE LIVES HANGING IN THE BALANCE. THERE IS A LADY WHO HAS BEEN IN COURT THE LAST FEW WEEKS THAT SAYS AMONG OTHER THINGS HERE HUSBAND IS WEARING AN OUT DATED BULLET PROOF VEST THERE IS NO EXCUSE FOR THIS. ALLOW ME TO GO OVER DISPURSE AMS THE SHERIFF OFFICE MADE IN THE LAST WEEK AND I WILL LET YOU DECIDE WHERE HIS PRIORITIES ARE. HOME DEPOT CREDIT SERVICES.

REFRIGERATORS FOR TRAINING ACADEMY. 3, 066.

TIME WARNER TV FOR THE SHERIFF. 292 IFUM TO ME THEY WOULD NOT HAVE TIME TOP WATCH CABLE TELEVISION. WE GOT 8 PACKS OF DRONE SERVICE. BATTERIES.

237 DOLLARS. CARD SERVICE CENTER. JUNIOR DEPARTMENT STICKERS.

494.54. I URGE THE COURT TO USE ALL OF THE INFLUENCE ON THE SHERIFF.

SO THIS WE DON'T HAVE OUR HAYS COUNTY CITIZENS BURDENS WITH THINGS LIKE THAT.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH. THANK YOU, SIR. NEXT UP.

MR. AMIA. THANK YOU JUDGE ISSUE COMMISSIONERS.

-- I TOOK A DAY OFF TO COME UP HERE AND -- I DON'T KNOW MA'AM OF YOU HEARD ABOUT THE SHERIFF THIS GOT ARRESTED FOR TAMPERING WITH THE EVIDENCE. THERE IS STUFF HAPPENING HOAR IN HAYS COUNTY. I HEAR A BUNCH OF SPEAKERS TALK ABOUT DEFUNDING OF THE SHERIFF'S OFFICE. AS A FORM ARE OFFICER, DON'T BELIEVE THEM LIES.

[00:10:01]

I DRIVE UP THE SHERIFF'S OFFICE I DRIVE A BUS I DRIVE BY THERE. SEE THE NEW VEHICLES COME IN AND OUT AND THE VEHICLES OUT DRIVING THE CARS. AND -- THE ISSUE IS NOT THE FUNDING IT IS THE PRIORITY. THERE IS A GUY I BELIEVE TREGER. I SEE HIM DRIVE WITH A CAMERA.

HE GOT NEW VEHICLE. I DON'T KNOW WHEN PURVIEW IT WILL SWITCH OUT IF HE IS HANDLING ACCIDENT. BUT THE OTHER THING IS YOU GOT CAPTAIN CUMBERLAND LOOK AT HIS WASTE. ANYBODY COME IN WITH THAT EQUIPMENT A GUN AND SOME OF THE STUFF THAT IS NOT REQUIRED BY THE USER FORCE. WHEN YOU ARE THAT THE RELAXED OUT THERE AND YOU COME UP AND PORTRAY YOU WERE IN A WAR ZONE. YOU NEED TO LOOK AT THAT IF IT WAS A WAR ZONE LIKE I TELL THAT YOU IT IS, YOU WOULD NOT BE RUNG AROUND WITH A LITTLE GUN.

YOU ARE NOT READY FOR A SITUATION TO COME UP . THOSE ARE THINGS YOU NEED TO LOOK AT WHILE THEY COME UP AND LOYAL. OTHER THING I WANTED BRING UP TODAY A COUPLE YEARS BACK I REPUBLICAN FOR SHERIFF IN 2016 A LADY COMPLAINED ABOUT PROBLEMS WITH THE TRANSPORTING BUSINESS. OFFICE OF GENERAL COUNCIL I FILED AN OPEN RECORD'S REQUEST TO GET INFORMATION ON THAT TRNZ ACTION. THE RESPONSE WAS THEY DID NOT HAVE ANYTHING ON RECORD. YOU KNOW, MR. SMITH, COMMISSIONER SMITH I NOTICE YOU ARE ALWAYS TALKING ABOUT INVESTIGATIONS. I WOULD APPRECIATE FOR TO YOU RACH TOUT TO ME TO DISCUSS THIS MATTER AND I CAN SHOW YOU WHERE Y THIS COURT NEEDS TO GET A NEW COUNTY ATTORNEY GENERAL COUNCIL. ONE WE HAD HAD REPEATEDLY COST MILLIONS OF DOLLARS IN LOSSES.

AND HE IS STILL EMPLOYED. WE NEED TO DO BETTER. WE ARE IN DEBT OVER 700 MILLION DOLLARS. THIS ATTORNEY HAS HELD THAT POSITION FOR YEARS.

CITIZEN THAT COME UP AND TOLD YOU HOW THEY FILED OPEN RECORDS AND HE DOES NOT DELIVER THEM IN A TIMELY MATTER. WHEN ARE THE CONSEQUENCE. WE NEED TO DO BETTER I HOPE YOU ROPE OUT TO ME. I WANT AN INVESTIGATION. YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT INVESTIGATIONS THE STATE BAR SAID 4 YEARS FOR THE DATE OF THAT THIS HAPPEN TODAY WITHIN

THE STATUTE. THANK YOU. >> THANK YOU.

SIR. >> NEXT UP MR. KELLIE PURIER. GOOD MORNING.

THANKS FOR LETTING ME TALK TO YOU, COMMISSIONERS. FIRST, I WANTED TO THANK THE COMMISSIONERS FOR STANDING UP WITH US AND VOTING AGAINST EFFORTS TO MAKE HAYS COUNTY LIKE

AUSTIN. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. >> JUDGE BECERRA I WATCHED YOUR VIDEO YOU PUSHED ON SOCIAL MEDIA WHERE YOU ACCUSED THE GOOD OLE BOYS OF FEAR AMONGERING WHEN YOU THURSDAY WE WERE FOR DEFUNDING THE POLICE. YOU GO AND SAY THAT THIS WAS UNTRUE. YET ON JULY 28TH YOUR PROPOSAL BUDGET FOR PATROL WAS ZERO.

IT WAS THEN THAT YOU PUT THE SHERIFF'S HOODWINKS BETTER KNOWN AS CONCERNED CITIZENS VOICED CONCERNS ABOUT YOUR BUDGET. THANKFUL LOW, THIS BUDGET WAS NOT ADOPTED BUT DISCUSSED THROUGH THE BUDGET WORKSHOP PROCESS. THE OUTCOME WAS THE LAW ENFORCEMENT WOULD RECEIVE FUNDS. I NOTICE THAT THE END OF YOUR VIDEO, JUDGE BECARE AWE TOOK COMPLETE CREDIT REFERRING TO IT AS YOUR BUDGET. I BELIEVE THAT THIS BUDGET WAS THE RESULT OF HARD WORKING DONE BY OUR COMMISSIONERS. COMMISSIONERS.

THANK YOU AGAIN FOR HARD WORK AND HEARING US AND ACTING TO FUND LAW ENFORCEMENT.

IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT OUR COUNTRY ISSUE COUNT AND HE STATE REPS NOU KNOW THAT HAYS COUNTY WILL NOT PUT UP WITH LAWLESSNESS AND FUNDING LAW ENFORCEMENT. WE MUST STOP ORGANIZATIONS

>>, JUDGE,URE AFFILIATED WITH THAT SEEKS TO TAKE AWAY FUNDS AND A PLOY THEM TO ENABLE CRIMINALS LIKE BRITTNEY WAS TALKING ABOUT, TO BE RELEASED FROM JAILS AND TO IMPMENT A FAILED SITE AND RELEASE POLICY THIS GIVES NO THOUGHT TO THE CONSIDERATION OF THE VICTIMS. LIKE BRITTNEY. WE PUT YOU, JUDGE, THE ACTIVISTS ON NOTICE THAT WE BACK OUR BLUE.

[00:15:02]

AND STAND AGAINST THE ORGANIZATIONS. OUR BACK THE BLUE EFFORTS ARE NOTHING TO DO WITH SKIN COLOR. AND EVERYTHING TO DO WITH THE FREEDOM AND SAFETY OF OUR RESIDENCE IN HAYS COUNTY. WE'LL STAND FOR LAW ENFORCEMENT AND AGAINST THOSE WHO DEFUND AND PROSECUTE MOTE HATE OF POLICE.P OFFICERS AND CITIZENS TO LIVE IN FEAR.

GOD BLESS YOU AND GOD BLESS HAYS COUNTY. >> THANK YOU, MA'AM.

>> NEXT MR. LINDA FREEMAN. OF >> GOOD MORNING.

I WAS NOT FWHORN TEXAS BUT GOT BACK HERE AS FAST AS I COULD 3 TIMES.

FIRST I WANT TO THANK THE COMMISSIONERS FOR I WANT TO ECHO WHAT KELLIE SAID AND THANK THE COMMISSIONERS FOR CHOOSING TO FUND PATROL AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE. WE APPRECIATE THAT.

I STARTED COMING TO COMMISSIONER'S COURT EARLIER IN SEPTEMBER BECAUSE OF THIS FIGHT.

AND THERE ARE WEIRD THINGS VISEEN AND HEARD HERE. THE GUY WHO LISTED THE SHERIFF'S EXPENSES FOR DRY CLEANING AND LODGING AND TODAY THE SAME TALKED ABOUT HOME DEPOT BUT THE SHERIFF DOES NOT RESPOND AND WE WOULD LIKE TO SEE EXPENSES BY SEVERAL OTHERS FOR THINGS THIS MIGHT BE DEEMED OF CONTEXT AND PROMOTE. THERE WAS THE WOMAN WHO STOCHL IN THE FROM TEXAS STATE DECLARING FEAR AND TERROR BEING IN THE SAME ROM WITH PEOPLE WITHOUT MASKS AT JUDGE BECERRA WAS ON THE BENCH WITHOUT A MASK AND A WOMAN WHO CAME IN AFTER HER BEING FEAR MONGERS THE PEOPLE FROM TEXAS STATE CLAIMED BE OVER WORKED THEY COULD NOT LEAVE CAMPUS TO VOTE. THEY HAVE BEEN LEAD TO THAN ALL THE GROWTH IS BECAUSE OF THEM AND TEXAS SAFE. THEY HAVE NOT BEEN TO DRIPPING SPRINGS.

THERE WERE SEVERAL PEOPLE IN HERE WHO DON'T DECLIR AFFIL AFFILIATIONS AND IN SUPPORT OF TAKING FUNDING AWAY FROM LAW ENFORCEMENT.

THE WORSE THING I HEARD YOU, LECTURING US ON ORDER IN THE COURT AND COMPLAINING DISRESPECTFUL AND DISRUPTIVE BANGING YOUR GAVEL SO LOUDLY MORE LOUD LOW THAN NECESSARY ENOUGH TO WAKE THE DEAD. YOU TOLD US TO BE RESPECTFUL AND THERE ARE RULES TO BE FOLLOWD AND YET WHEN MY FRIENDS KELLIE STOOD AND UP READ BUDGET NUMBERS YOU CHALLENGED HER.

YOU SAID YOU ARE NOT SUPPOSED TO RESPOND YET YOU CHALLENGED HER IN OPEN COURT AND DID NOT GIVE HER A CHANCE TO RESPONSE YOU THROUGH SHADE ON HER NUMBERS READING FROM YOUR BUDGET AND TWHEN HE TRIED TO RESPOND TO WHAT YOU SAID YOU TOLD HER SHE WAS OUT OF TIME.

I BELIEVE YOU OWE HER 3 MORE MINUTES TO RESPONDED AND I DON'T THINK IT IS APPROPRIATE TO DISCREDIT HER HASHG REMARK IN OPEN COURT WOULD YOU HAVE HAD GIVING HER A CHANCE TO RESPONDED. WE COME FROM DIFFERENT WORLDS AND WE LIVE IN THE SAME WORLD I'M A JOURNALIST I WORKED AT MS NBC IN NEW YORK I LIVED IN NEW YORK AND CALIFORNIA AND I HAVE MOVED TO TEXAS 3 TIMES I FEEL LIKE AN HONORARY TEXAN THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN US IS I WOULD NOT CHANGE A THING HERE. YOU SEEM TO WANT TO CHANGE EVERYTHING.

SO, I'M ASKING YOU TO UNDERSTAND WHERE YOU LIVE AND WHO WE ARE. AND THIS WE ARE THE VOTERS AND THE TAXPAYERS AND YOU ARE USING OUR TACK DOLLARS FOR PURPOSES THAT I DON'T THINK THE MAJORITY

WOULD AGREE. THANK YOU, COMMISSIONERS. >> OPEN AGENDA ITEM NUMBER ONE

BUT OFTEN THE PROBLEMS GO UNDETECTED AND 85% OF THOSE WHO NEED HELP DON'T GET THE TREATMENT. THEY NEVER SEEK IT OR DON'T KNOW OF THE AVAILABILITY. INITIATIVES LIKE DRIPPING SPRINGS ISD IS DOING ARE

[00:50:01]

IMPORTANT. THEY HAVE REALLY DONE A PHENOMENONAL JOB OF OUT REACH IN THE COMMUNITY AND GETTING COMMUNITY BUY IN. WHEN I SAY THAT, IT IS NOT JUST A COMMUNITY WHEN I SAY UPON COMMUNITY BUY IN NOT THAT THEY HAVE SO TO CONVINCE PEOPLE BUT THEY HAVE TO EDUCATE FOLKS. IF YOU ARE IN A CAR WRECK OR BREAK YOUR LEG IT IS A VISIBLE, PHYSICAL INJURY TEMPERATURE IS SOMETHING YOU CAN SEE THAT , IS TANGIBLE AND FOR -- FOR ALL THE REASONS THAT -- THAT -- OUR NATION FOUGHT FOR A COUPLE HUNDRED YEARS IT IS THERE IS A STIGMA WITH MENTAL HEALTH ISSUES.

THERE -- ARE QUARTER LOW REPORTS THIS ARE DUE AT THE END OF THIS MONTH.

AND WELL IS ALSO AN EVENT NOTICE RELATED THE AMENDMENT OF THE INDENTURE THAT NEEDS TO BE

[01:00:07]

FOILED IN THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS. >> SO THOSE WILL BE THROUGH THE CURRENT AGENT. THIS IS THE FIRST. THE SECOND ITEM YOUR AGENDA IS WHEN YOU ISSUE THE BONDS OF 2015. THOSE BONDS WERE FOR MASTER INFRASTRUCTURE. THE COUNTY'S AGREEMENT WITH THE DEVELOPER AT THE TIME WAS THAT BEFORE THE COUNTY WOULD CONSIDER APPROVING GOING FORWARD WITH THE BONDS FOR IMPROVEMENT AREAS THEY

HAD TO MEET MILE STONES ON COMPLETION OF THE PROJECT. >> IT WAS 100% COMPLETION.

AMENDMENT TO THE 2015 INDENTURE MODIFIED THAT SLIGHTLY TO 75% COMPLETE AND CERTAIN LEAN RATIOS ON THE PROPERTY AND THEY HAVE BEEN SATISFIED. AND THAT AMENDMENT IS NOW EFFECTIVE AND BINDING ON THE COUNTY AND BOND HOLDERS. SOCIETY DEVELOPER IS REQUESTING THAT THE COUNTY CONSIDER THE ISSUANCE OF BONDS FOR IMPROVEMENT AREA SCOMBON 2 THE INTERNAL WATER WASTEWATER AND ROADS. RELATE TO THE TWO IMPROVEMENT AREAS. AND WHAT YOU HAVE BEFORE YOU IS THE OFFERING DOCUMENT THAT BASICALLY TELLESS THE STORE TOW THE INVESTORS. IT -- SUMMARIZES HOW THE DISTRICT START WHERED IT IS NOW.

WHEN THE HOME BUILDERS ARE. HOW FAR LONG THEY ARE. AND THEN IT ALSO SUMMARIZES THE KEY DOCUMENTS THE FINANCING AGREEMENT I MENTIONED AND THE INDENTURE OF TRUST ORDERED WITH THE TRUSTEE. SO -- IF YOU AGREE TO GO FORWARD WITH THE BONDS AND APPROVE THIS RESOLUTION. THE UNDER WRITER WOULD TAKE THE OFFERING DOCUMENT FINALIZE IT, POST IT AND START MARKETING THE BONDS TO INVESTORS. WE WOULD COME BACK IN A COUPLE OF WEEKS. AFTER PRICING AND PRESENT THE PRICING INFORMATION AND THE COURT COULD DECIDE AT THE TIME TO ISSUE BONDS. UPON COMMISSIONERS, QUESTIONS?

AS THE SCIENCE CHANGE FROM SUMTORY FALL THE HAYS COUNTY HEALTH DEPARTMENT SHIFTS FOCUS FROM FOOD AND WATER BOURN DISEASES TO FLU SEASON THIS IS NOT A TIPICAL YEAR THIS IS 2020 THE YEAR THAT HIT A DOUBLE HURRICANE IN WELL LAMP MURDER HORNETS AND COVID-19 THAT BROUGHT OUR COUNT ROW TO A HALT.

WE HAVE FLU OUT BREAK IN DAY CARE, SCHOOLS AND PLACES OF WORK.

THIS YEAR WITH COVID-19 STILL HANGING AROUND. TELL BE IMPOSSIBLE TO DISTINGUISH THE TWO WITHOUT INVESTIGATION A PHYSICIAN. THE CDC AND HEALTH DIAGRAM BEGIN US OUR ORDERS IN THE ABSENCE OF A POSITIVE FLU TEST WE'RE REQUIRED TO TEACH THEM AS IF THEY HAVE COVID-19 THIS MEANS SOMEONE WITH A MILD FLU CASE COULD BE QUARANTINED FOR 10 DAYS UNLESS THEY VISIT A PHYSICIAN REQUIRING THE SICK PERSON TO SPEND MORE ON COPAYS AND LOADS WE ARE DOING THE RIGHT PRACTICE THIS IS SLOW THE SPREAD OF FLU. SOCIAL SDANGS, COVERING COUGHS AND SNEEZES, WASHING HANT HANDS AND WEARING A MASK WILL HELP STOP THE SPREAD OF THE FLU LIKE IT IS WITH COVID-19. THERE IS A WEAPON WE HAVE AGAINST THE FLU AND THAT IS A FLU VACCINE. BY GETTING A FLU SHOT YOU REDUCE YOUR CHANCES OF GETTING THE FLU.

OF ALL YEARS, THIS IS THE YEAR THAT MANY ON THE FENCE WONDER FIGURE THAT I WILL SHOULD GET IT JUMP OFF THAT FENCE AND VISIT THE CLINIC OR PHARMACY. IT TAKES TWO WEEKS FOR IT TO BUILD UP ANTIBODIES TO FOIT THE FLU. WE URGE TORN GET THEIR SHOTS AS

THANK YOU FOR YOUR EFFORTS. I APPRECIATE IT.

>> I WANTED ASK YOU MR. SCHNEIDER I LOCKED AND I DIDN'T SEE A SIGN UP COMMENTS.

A FIRST COME SERVE AND LIMITED SUPPLY. HOPEFUL LOW WE'LL HAVE IT SOON AS WELL. AS FAR AS UNINSURED. THERE ARE CLINICS ON THE OTHER HAND THAT DO OFFER IT DISCOUNTED. I'M NOT SURE WHAT EACH CLINIC WOULD CHARGE. BUT TYPICALLY THERE IS A LOW COST FLU SHOT THAT CAN BE DONE IN A CLINIC OR THROUGH COPRESCRIPTION WITH PHARMACIES. OKAY IF YOU DO ME A FAVOR AND WORK WITH TAMMY AND HE ERIC ON CREATING RECAP BEHALF IS AVAILABLE.

I WANT TO HEED THEIR UPON WARNING FOR THE GENERAL PUBLIC AND TAKE THAT INFORMATION IN I WAY THAT IS A PDF. PRESS RELEASE REITY RITTING AND HIGHLIGHTING AND UNDER LINING THIS WHATTURE TALKING ABOUT.

[01:15:04]

WOULD LIKE TO ASK YOU JUDGE AND THE COURT IF WE COULD UPON ENTERTAIN A -- TEMPORARY PERSON TO COME IN AND FILL THIS POSITION IF WOULD FREE OUR DEPUTIES UP AND ME.

>> HOW MUCH DIME DO YOU THINK IT WILL TAKE TO TRAIN THIS INDIVIDUAL OR DO YOU HAVE

SOMEONE IN MIND. >> WE HAVE SOMEONE MIND. THE JUSTICE CLERK WITH PRECINCT 4 HAVE BEEN HELPFUL. ALL THE CONSTABLES HAVE BEEN HELPFUL WITH US IN THIS NEW ENDEAVOUR. I COULD NOT TELL YOU AN EXACT TIME I DON'T THINK VERY LANGUAGE TO UNDERSTAND THAT THE PERSON WE HAVE IN MIND HAS A PRIOR COUNTY EMPLOYEE THAT UNDERSTANDS THE COMPUTER SYSTEMS AND THINGS OF THIS NATURE. IT WOULD BE SPECIFIC TO THIS JOB.

AND -- AGAIN, I WOULD GUESS I WILL. MAY BE 3-FUR DAYS.

WHY WONDERFUL. >> GREAT NEWS. >> I SAY THAT SPECIFIC LOW IF YOU REMEMBER DURING OUR BUDGET CONVERSATIONS WE TALKED ABOUT THE JUSTICE CLERKS AND TH HAVE YOU HAD A CHANCE TO LOOK AT THAT. EVERY CONSTABLE ASKED.

THE TRICKLE AFFECT OF CHANGING THOSE POSITIONS TO A DIFFERENT GRADE WOULD BE UM -- VERY FAR REACHING. WE HAVE A LOT OF OTHER JOBS IN THE COUNTY THAT PERFORM SIMILAR LEVEL OF WORK. AND THIS WOULD IF WERE A RECOMMENDATION TO MAKE A CHANGE THAT -- WOULD BE IMPACT AND WE WOULD WANT TO ADDRESS AND CONSIDER. SPECIFIC LOW THE JUSTICE CLERK IN PRECINCT 4 HAS WORK IN THE THE TRAINING CAPACITY FOR SEVERAL YEARS NOW THAT HAVEVILLEIDATED THAT INFORMATION BOTH WITH IT STAFF AND WITH, CONSTABLE STAFF AND IN THE LEFT FEW WEEKS THAT EMPLOYEE HAS WORKED IN THE PRECINCT 3 OFFICE HELPING THEM SURVIVE. BASICALLY THIS REGULAR EMPLOYEE

IS OUT. >> THE POSITIONS HAVE BEEN LOOKED AT.

I'M NOT APPROPRIATEED SAY I WOULD RECOMMEND A GRADE CHANGE AT THIS TIME.

IF THE COURTMENTED CONSIDER AN APPROXIMATE SUSPICION CHANGE FOR THE PRECINCT 4, NOT ONLY IS PERFORMING JUSTICE CLERK DUTIES IN THE CONSTABLE'S OFFICE BUT SUPPORTING THE OTHER CONSTABLE OFFICES WHEN NEEDED. OR WHEN THERE ARE SOFTWARE CHANGES.

WORK TIES TO SOFTWARE CHANGES OR PROGRAM CHANGE IN THEIR ELECTRONIC SYSTEM.

NOT ONLY THEY ARE WORKING EVERY DAY THEY WORK AND WORK OVER TIME TRYING TO GET OUR DISPATCHERS

TRAINED AND EFFICIENT IN JOBS. HOW IS THIS GOING? >> GOING WELL BUT ON GOING.

[01:20:04]

IT IS NOT WE ARE NOT DONE. WE GOT EIGHT NEW POSITIONS IN JUNE.

SO ON TOP OF THE OPEN HAPPENINGS WE HAVE A FEW TO FILL. >> AND THEY00 EYE THINK WE NEED

A MOTION? >> SUBMIT. >> SECOND.

>> MOTION AND SECOND. AND -- COMMISSIONER INGALSBE? OKAY.

I WAS. JUST BECAUSE I KNOW THAT EVERYBODY RECEIVED AN E SXHAL A CALL FROM OUR TREASURER, YOU KNOW WE HAVE TWO NATURAL ALMOST PAGES OF EMPLOYEES THAT ARE IN THE SAME SITUATION. AND THERE ARE RECOMMENDATIONS YOU KNOW FOR THAT AND BEFORE I UPON EVEN HEARD BRITTNEY'S MESSAGE I WAS WONDERING ALSO. AND YOU CAN LET ME FINISH THIS WOULD MAY BE WORK FOR THESE 4 EMPLOYEES BUT. IF WE WERE TO EXTEND THE TIME TO THE END OF THE YEAR THAT EMPLOYEES CAN TAKE OFF. THAT WOULD HELP THE SITUATION? THAT WAS THE INITIAL REQUEST THAT WE THOUGHT ABOUT. MY CONCERN WITH THAT IS WE STILL HAVE SO MANY POSITIONS TO HIRE IN DISPATCH. WE'LL TAKE ANYTHING WE ARE APPRECIATIVE FOR ANYTHING IN REFERENCE TO THIS TIME. I CAN'T PROMISE WE'LL BE ABLE TO FWURN DOWN THEY WILL EARN IT NEXT YEAR WHILE THIS. IF THIS IS WHEN THE COURT WANTS TO DO THAT'S AN ABOUT THE EVERBENEFIT TO THE EMPLOYEES AND WE SUPPORT THIS FOR SURE F. WE BUY DOWN OFF THE BOOKS AND START FRESH AGAIN WITH THE NORMAL 8 TO 10, 12 HOURS.

>> EITHER WAY >> I APPRECIATE THAT. I JUST THEN AND THERE WE HAD THIS DISCUSSION BEFORE JUDGE IN COURT AND WE KNOW HOW FORTUNATE IS FOR EMPLOYEES TO TAKE TIME, ALTHOUGH WE THEN AND THERE IS NOT A NORMAL YEAR. IT HAS BEEN DIFFICULT FOR MANY OF OUR EMPLOYEES TO DO THAT. AND SO IT WAS JUST A CONSIDERATION.

>> I REMEMBER COMMISSIONER, LEFT TIME WE HAD THIS CONVERSATION YOU POINTED OUT.

WE ARE WORKING WITH NOT A DEPARTMENT BUT A THOUSAND EMPLOYEES.

I REMEMBER JERRY AND THE TRANSPORTATION AND ROAD PARTS HAVING SIMILAR CONCERNS AND ISSUES. AND WHAT WE DO YOU ARE RIGHT. IT AFFECTS ALL DEPARTMENTS.

AND SO -- I APPRECIATE THAT POINTING IT OUT. >> COMMISSIONER?

>> THIS SUSPECT ONE OF THE DEPARTMENTS I CAN SUPPORT THIS IS A VITAL THIS . IS ONE DEPARTMENT WE CAN'T GO SHORT HANDED ON. AND THESE DISPATCHERS EARN STRESS. NORMAL TIMES BUT THROUGH COSXRID TRYING TO OPEN UP A NEW FACILITY ON TOP OF THAT. I WOULD FEEL BETTER US OFF AND CLEAN SLATE BECOME IN THE NEW

YEAR. >> COMMISSIONER? COMMENTS?

>> I SAY THAT LAST YEAR, WHEN WE DID THIS, THERE WAS AN ASSUMPTION THAT AFTER WE HAD THE PS B OPEN WIELD FULLY STAFF AND WOULD HAVE TO DO THIS AGAIN. AND I DMAP TO BE THE CASE.

ALONG WITH COMMISSIONER JONES I'M WILL -- YOU CAN'T PUT IN WORDS THE STRESS THIS JOB HAS ON -- AT THE ENDS OF THE DAY, I HOPE HAIF -- WE WANT TO DO SOMETHING FOR ALL EMPLOYEE IN THIS SITUATION WE HAVE OTHERS OUT THERE WHO ARE NOT TAKING THEIR VACATION BECAUSE THEY PHYSICALLY CAN'T. THEIR STAFFING NEEDS IN OFFICES WITH THE ELECTION AND TRANSACTION DICK TATD THEY DON'T HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY. I WOULD BE SUPPORTIVE OF EXTEND THANKSGIVING TIME TABLE. I SPOKE WITH BRITTNEY AS WELL AND HAVE A BETTER OVER VIEW OF HOW MANY OFFICE THERE IS ARE. I HAVE A FEELING AND I THEN AND THERE IS A UNIQUE SITUATION.

I WANT TO ENCOURAGE IF WE TAKE ACTION TODAY. THAT WE WOULD SEE THIS NEXT FISCAL YEAR. AND I DON'T KNOW THAT THIS IS A GUARANTEE YOU CAN MAKE THAT WOULD BE MY EXPECTATION. AND CAPTAIN MY INNERACTIONS WITH YOU HAVE BEEN POSITIVE.

I DO HAVE TO SHARE MY PERSPECTIVE. I, TOO SUPPORT THIS ASK.

BUT I WANT TO SEE AN END AS WELL BECAUSE -- THESE POSITIONS ARE VERY AS WE POINTED OUT.

VERY NECESSARY AND ESSENTIAL AND WITH THIS GOES VERY STRESSFUL. AND SO I MOO 9FEEL WE SHOULD

[01:25:04]

DOUBLE DOWN IN HOW WE CAN SUPPORT DEPARTMENTS SO THE STRESSFUL SPACE WHEREVER THEY MAY BE, GET THE FULL FEEL, SUPPORT FROM US AND AL KATH THE TIME AWFUL IT IS GIVING THEM THE EMOTION DISCONNECT TO BE ALL THEY CAN BE IN THAT VITAL SPACE. AND SO -- IF YOU WILL LIKE OUR COMMISSIONER SAID WE SUPPORT YOU BUT WE WANT TO MAKE SURE WE DON'T ACCIDENTALLY TRY TO BE USEFUL OVER RIDE SOME EMOTIONAL SUPPORT. FOR THE INDIVIDUAL IN THAT SPACE THAT IS STRESSFUL. I WOULD TAKE THIS TINY MOMENT TO DOUBLE DOWN ON PLEASE ASKING HAD YOU -- UPON WORK WITH EVERY AVENUE POSSIBLE TO ALLOW THE FOLKS INSTEAD OF THE PAY WE SEE AS A BENEFIT TO WEAVE IN THAT DECOMPRESSION POTENTIAL ROTATION OF THOUGHT PROCESS.

WHATEVER IT MAY BE CALLED DEPENDING ON THE SPACE, SO THEY HAVE LESS STRESS ON THE JOB AND

MORE FRUITFUL OF THEMSELVES AND THE COMMUNITY THEY SERVED >> THE COURT HAS BEEN SUPPORTIVE. WE REAUSHG JUSTED THEIR PAY AND THAT WAS LAST YEAR.

>> AND POSITIONS. THE THING I CAN SAY IS COMMISSIONERS, WE GOTTA LET IT WORK AND THAT TAKE TIME. YOU IMPLEMENTED THE THINGS TO GET US THERE NOW WE HAVE TO GET EMPLOYEE IN HIRE, TRAIN AND CONFIDENT TO SET BY THEMSELVES. YOU KNOW HOW TECHNICAL THE JOB IS. SO -- WE DO EVERYTHING WE CAN DO TO GET THEM THEIR TIME OFF THERE IS LIMITED NUMBERS NOW. THE NUMBERS I'M SHOWING EIGHT IN TRAINING IF THEY PASS TRAINING THAT IS HUGE. THAT 8 ALONE CAN CHANGE PEOPLE'S DAYS OFF.

THEY HAVE TO BE ABLE TO PASS ALL OF THE REQUIRED TRAINING. NOT EASY.

>> RIGHT. AND THEY NEED THE NEW CERTIFICATIONS I WALKD THAT IT IS, MAZING.

YOU ARE STAND NOTHING FRONT OF MONITORS DOING VERY IMPORTANT THINGS.

DO YOU HAVE ETA ON WHAT THAT BABY WILL BE TURNED ON? >> UM -- I HOPE IT WE ARE MOVE NOTHING MID NOVEMBER IN THIS DISPATCH. IS MY HOPE.

>> THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE. WE ARE GRATEFUL FOR YOUR WORK. >> THANK YOU.

>> COMMISSIONERS OTHER COMMENTS OR QUESTIONS? >> A NOTE THAT THESE ARE WE DO OPERATE THIS SERVICE 24 HOURS I DAY AND THAT MAKES IT HARDER YOU CAN'T NOT HAVE SOMEBODY ABOUT THEIR IT IS DIFFICULT AND I THEN AND THERE THEY HAVE PUT EXTRA TIME IN BECAUSE OF THE NEW COMMUNICATION CENTER. THAT I WILL HAVE BEEN DOING EXTRA TRAINING NOT ONLY NEW EMPLOYEES BUT NEW SYSTEMS AND WORKING WITH OTHER AGENCIES. IT HAS BEEN CHALLENGING.

>> LIKE NORMAL TIMES I WOULD BE INTERESTED IN HAVING TIME OFF BUT THIS IS NOT NORMAL NOW.

>> I AGREE. AND APPRECIATE THE WORK THEY DO AND THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE.

I HOPE WE GET EVERYBODY EMPLOYD AND GET THAT FULLY STAFFED I APPRECIATE.

MOTORING PROCEDURES PROCESSD THAT WAS IMPELEMENTED JULY FIRST, 1997.

>> SO MOVED. >> SECOND. >> MOTION AND SECTION.

AND I AM GLAD YOU ARE WALKING BECAUSE I LIKE YOU TO TAKE THE PODIUM.

AND TELL US ABOUT THIS 10 YEAR CYCLE WE ARE LOOKING AT BEFORE US NOW.

FOR THE PUBLIC TO UNDERSTAND WHAT IS GOING ON. SO.

IN. THE 1997 THE COUNTY COMMISSIONERS DECIDED TO CREATE A 10 YEAR GRAND FATHERING CLAUSE THE ADMINISTRATIVE VARIANCE. THERE WAS DISCUSSION AT THE TIME ABOUT HOW THIS NODEED MOVE FORWARD BUT IT WAS SCOMBRUFT SO WE CAN CONTINUE OPERATING AS USUAL WITHOUT HAVING IT. OKAY. SORRY.

BRING BEFORE YOU IN REGARD TO THE 1997 VARIANCE REQUESTS THIS WE HAVE.

. WE ARE -- HAVING A CHANGE IN LAND SCAPE WITH HOW WE ARE DEVELOPING WITHIN HAYS. 97 HAY COUNT VERY WELL A DIFFERENT ACCOMPLICE THA 2020 HAYS COUNTY. SO, WHENEVER THIS WAS FIRST IMPLEMENTED IT WAS BROUGHT UP IN COURT AND DISCUSSED THIS AS LONG AS THE PARCELS WERE IN THE SAME CONDITIONATION TKDZ BE MOVED FORWARD THIS WAY WE DID NOT HAVE CITIZENS THAT OWNED THE SAME PROPERTY FOR MORE THEN AND THERE 10 YEAR. SOME OWN TODAY SINCE THE 60S. THIS WAS TO HELP PROTECT THOSE CITIZENS. YOU IN RED ON THIS VARIANCE DOCUMENTATION.

IT IS -- JUST FIRMINGUM HOW WE ALREADY HAVE OF THE CURRENT PROCEDURES.

AND IT SCIENTISTS THIS FURTHER DIVISION OF THE PARCEL PLANNED BY SURVEY OR COLONELEDO STYLE DEVELOP. RENDER IT NULL AND VOID. THEY WERE IN THE A THING IN 1997. AND HAVE BECOME STARTING TO SEE MORE.

THEY ARE PREPONDER LAWYER IN AUSTIN. THEY ARE STARTING TO BLEED TO THE SURROUNDING COUNTIES. ALL OF Y'ALL IS SPOKEN IN TERPS OF THE NEW COLONELEDO STYLES WE ARE SEEING NOT TO SAY THEY ARE ALL COND DOES IT IS A TYPE OF MRATH.

I LIKE TO BRING UPDATE FACT. WHETHER OR NOT Y'ALL WOULD WANT TO CONTINUE WITH THE BLANKET 10 YEAR VARIANCE UNTIL THE END OF TIME ORMENTED STARCH THINK BURGLAR A CUT OFF DATE WHERE I WOULD SAY 2020 OR 2010 -- IF YOU GUYS ARE WANTING TO CONSIDER THAT.

BUT BEFORE YOU TODAY IS FIRMING UPDATE LANGUAGE OF OUR 10 YEAR PLATTING VARIANCE SO IT CLEAR

[01:45:09]

ACROSS THE BOARD FOR CONSTITUENTS WHO RECEIVE IT. >> MR. KENNEDY YOU WANT TO MAKE STATEMENTS RELATIVE THIS IS ALREADY WHEN WE ARE LOOKING AT ISOW WE LOOK AT IT ALREADY.

>> THAT'S CORRECT. THE FACT THAT IT AN ADMINISTRATIVE VARIANCE MEANS THAT THE DEVELOP AM SERVICE AND THE FOLKS THERE WOULD LIKE TO MAKE SURE THEY ARE TOUCHING BASE WITH THE COURT EVERY CHANCE THEY HAVE KNOW OPPORTUNITY TOP DO SO. WEAVE HAVE SINCE 2004 CONFIRMED NOT ONLY OUR INTERCEPTION BUT OUR RIGHT TO INTERCEPT A CONDO RESEEM IS A PLAT FOR OUR RULES.

YOU RECALL THAT ARE IS SOMETIMES THE HEATHERWOOD OPINION. THAT'S AN AVIVID OPINION FROM LATE JULY OF 04. WE HAVE OPERATED UNDER THAT AND CONTINUE TO.

WITH THAT, I CAN TELL THAT YOU IN MY PRECINCTS I POSSIBLY WHEN WE COME TO COURT YOU SEE ME SIGN

4 OR 5. MAY BE NOT EVERY WEEK. >> FOR 2020 WE HAD 40, 10 YEAR MOTORING VARIANCES. 2019 WAS 30. HOW MANY IN MY PRECINCT?

>> A VAST MAJORITY. WITH THAT I SEE THE NEED FOR THIS.

AND WE ARE SEE SOME CHANGES IN THE WAY PEOPLE ARE USING IT. TESTIMONY IS A NEEDED CHANGE.

>> I AGREE. >> HOW ABOUT THAT 10 YEAR CYCLE? YOU ARE GOOD WITH THAT? MY PREFERENCE WOULD BE AT THIS POINT LEAVING THE 10 YEAR CYCLE AND AS WE LOOK AT THE OVER ALL DEVELOPMENT REGULATIONS AND REWRITES WE ARE LOOKING AT IN THE END NEXT YEAR HAVING IT TAKE A LOOK AT THAT AS PART OF THAT. IS THAT SOMETHING YOU THINK WOULD BE VIABLE OR NO?

>> YES , SIR, I DO. >> I THINK THAT AS WE CONDITION TO SEE MORE COME IN THE COUNTY WE HAVE AN UNDERSTANDING WHAT KIND OF -- HOW MANY VARIANCES WE ARE ISSUING.

EACH ONE OF Y'ALL ARE NOT A FAN OF THE WORD, VARIANCE. SO -- WHICH IS SOMETHING FWHEED BE ADDRESSING AND WE CAN LOOK AT IT IN THE RULE'S UPDATE WE ARE WORK OF

>> OTHER THANNING THING I WILL TELL Y'ALL YOU GET THIS IN Y'ALL'S PRECINCTS.

WHEN THESE ADMINISTRATIVE VARIANCES COME WELL IS AN ASSUMPTION FROM THE PUBLIC WE VOTE FEDERAL ARE A VARIANCE IT IS NOT THE CASE. THE WHOLE PURPOSE OF THE VARIANCE IS THAT THEY ARE NOT CHANGING THE CONFIGURATIONS, OR ANYTHING OF THAT SPECIFIC PIECE OF PERMANENT. AND SO THAT IS THE REASON I FOR ONE WANT TO SEW THIS UP A BIT.

>> OKAY. >> COMMISSIONERS? >> HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT THE 10

YEAR TIME LINE? >> I THINK THAT ESPECIALLY FOR SOME OF OUR RURAL PARTS THE 10 YEAR PIECE IS IMPORTANT. BECAUSE WE SEE A LOT OF DIVISION OF PROPERTY WHERE THEY HAVE DIVIDE TODAY AND DID NOT REALIZE. AS WE GET FURTHER TO 2020 AND 2030 IT IS IN 1997 WHEN THIS WAS DONEFUL IT WAS HARDER TO GET THIS INFORMATION IN 2020 IT IS EASIER TO AM GET ONLINE, CALLING TO YOUS SEE WHAT PROPERTY. I'M NOT TELLING PEOPLE HOW TO DIVIDE THEIR PERMANENT. NOT WHAT I WANT TO GET IN THE BUSINESS OF.

IT NEEDS TO MEET OUR COMPLIANCE STANDARDS THIS 10 YEAR QUESTIONS OF LAW IFKDZ.

FAMILY EXEMPTIONS. 10 ACRES OR PLOTTED. I THINK WE COULD DEFINITE LOW LOOK INTO CREATING A HARDER DATE. THAT WAS ONE OF THE RECOMMENDATIONS IN 1997 TO HAVE A FIRM DATE MOVING FORWARD AND ONE OF THE REASONS I BROUGHT IT BEFORE Y'ALL SIMPLE THAT IT WAS THE RECOMMENDATIONS FROM PRIOR COURT I WANTED SEE IF THAT WAS

SOMETHING YOU WANTED CONSIDER. >> I THINK 10 JOERS TOO LONG AND DO IT EVERY 5 LIKE 2020, 2025.

EVERY 5 YEARS IT WOULD KEEP US ON THE PULSE OF THIS CHANGING AND GROWING LAND SCAPE WE CALL,

HOME. >> DEFINITELY. IT IS IN THE A ROTATING.

[01:50:05]

I THINK WE MAY BE TALKING ABOUT 2 THINGS. I SAY THAT BECAUSE WHEN WE TALK ABOUT THAT DATE THAT CERTAIN A DATE WHERE FROM THAT UPON POINT ANYTHING AFTER THAT WOULD HAD TO GO THROUGH THIS PROCESS. NO NOT REVIEWING IT EVERY 5 YEARS.

IT IS DIFFERENT. >>S WHY. >> CORRECT.

>> IF A PROPERTY WAS SUBDIVOID IN THE 87 AND THEY CAME FOR A PERMIT NOW THEY WOULD QUALIFY URN THE 10 YEAR IT HAS BEEN 10 YEAR SINCE THE PARCEL WAS CREATED.

IF CREATE IN THE 2015 THEY WOULD NOT QUALIFY THE FACT IT HEN 5 YEARS.

. VERY GOOD. IF NO, COMMENTS CALL ROLL.

>> COMMISSIONER INGALSBE. >> YES. >> COMMISSIONER JONES.

>> YES. >> COMMISSIONER SHELL. >> YES.

>> COMMISSIONER SMITH. >> YES. >> JUDGE BECERRA.

THE HIGH POINTS I WILL HIT AND UP CAN ASK QUESTIONS THE HIGH POINT SYSTEM THAT THERE IS A NEW PAY PIECE THIS IS EXHIBITS ATO THE AGREEMENT. IT IS I THINK AT THE BACK OF THIS SECTION. INSTEAD OF INTGRIT INSTEAD AGREEMENT IIS IN THE BACK AND I BELIEVE IN COLOR YOU SEE THE PAY RANGES. UPON THIS WOULD BE IMPLEMENTED UNDER THE CONTRACT IN FEBRUARY OF 2021. THERE ARE ALSO A ADDITIONAL SOFT PAYS AND A FEW NEWARK SIGNMENT PACE. SPECIAL ASSIGNMENT PAYS IMPLEMENTS OCTOBER 21, 2021. THE FISCAL IMPACT IS THE THE PAY PIECE IS ESTIMATED TO BE IN THAT IS NOT COUNTING SOFT PAYS THE ESTIMATED IMPACT OF THE PAY PIECE IS 1.54 MILLION. AND I WILL OPEN UP FOR QUESTIONS FROM THERE.

>> FIRST I LIKE TO ASK YOU IS -- I THAN JUDGES PROPOSED BUDGET ALLOCATED WITHIN.5 BILLION DOLLARS IN LAW ENFORCEMENT AND THE COMMISSIONER LEFT IT IN TACT AND THERE IS NO CHANGE.

BUT YOU HAVE MENTIONED 1 PENALTY 54 MILLION. SO WHAT ARE WE THINKING ON THE

400 THOUSAND DOLLARS VARIANCE >> 40,000. >> WE BELIEVE THAT WE CAN ABSORB THAT WITH SAUL ROW SAVE HAVE GONES LATER IN THE YEAR AND WILL NOT BE A NEED TO IDENTIFY IT IN

LOCHING IN THE CONSTABLES. >> WE BEGOON LOOPING CONSTABLES IN THE AGREEMENT TWO ROUNDS AGO.

AND WE DID THAT BECAUSE IN HAYS COUNTY WE THOUGHT THAT WAS SOMETHING WE WANTED ACHIEVE FOR PARODE. SINCE THEN, THERE HAVE BEEN COURT OPINIONS AND OTHER OPINIONS THIS HAVE CONFIRMED THIS CONSTABLES ARE PER OF THE BAUERINGING UNIT THEY HAVE THE

[02:00:02]

ABILITY, I THINK THE CURRENT JURIS PRUDENCE. BARGAINING SEPARATE LOW.

WE PHOTOGRAPHY HAVE IT ALL UNDERWENTED ONE OFFICER IN ONE BARGAINING SESSION IN HAYS AND EVERYBODY AGREED. WE HAVE BEEN INCLUDING THE CONSTABLES NOW THIS STATUTE

THIRD ROUND OF INCLUDING THE CONSTABLES IN THIS. >> THAT IS WONDERFUL.

I WAS HOMING FOR THE CONSISTENCY AND CONTINUITY FOR ALL THE BAR DEPUTIES.

>> CORRECT. >> YES , SIR. COMMISSIONER INGALSBE.

>> IT WAS A REALLY GREATEST HONOR TO SERVE AS PART OF THE COUNTY'S COLLECTIVE BARGAINING TEAM AND WE HAD A GREAT GROUCH INDIVIDUALOS THE OTHER SIDE AND THEY WERE PLEASANT TO WORK WITH.

UNDERSTAND THEY UNDERSTOOD THE SITUATION WE ARE IN. YOU KNOW FINANCIAL LOW AND I JUST REALLY APPRECIATED THEIR WILLINGNESS TO WORK YOU KNOW THROUGH ALL OF THAT -- I THINK AS WAS MENTIONED MULTIPLE TIME THIS IS NEW PAY PIECE WILL ENABLE OUR DEPARTMENT -- I GUESS A BETTER HIRING PRACTICE AND KEEPING EMPLOYEES EMPLAYED WITH HAYS COUNTY BECAUSE OF THE CHANGES THAT WE MADE WHICH IS IMPORTANT BECAUSE WE WANT TO KEEP THOSE DEPUTIES AND OTHER LAW ENFORCEMENT PERSONNEL, KEEP SPENT TIME TRAINING THEM. WE WANT THEM TO KNOW THIS WE CARE AND THAT WE ARE WILLING TO PAY THEM WHAT WE BELIEVE THEY ARE WORTH AND I THINK THAT THIS -- THIS -- PLAN IS TARGETED THAT. AND SO -- I IRRELEVANT WANT TO SAY THAT I APPRECIATED THE OPPORTUNITY TO SERVE ON THAT TEAM.

WELL SAID. COMMISSIONER? THANK YOU.

I WANT TO WHICH SEEMS TO ME THIS WASES SMOOTHEST BARGAINING NEGOTIATIONS WE HAD SINCE I KNOW SOUTH AMERICAN SHELL AND I HAVE BEEN COURT. A LOT SMOOTHER THAN THE OTHERS.

KENNEDY GAVE US GOOD UPDATES AND I FELT INFORM HAPPENED AND WANT TO THANK MY COURT MEMBERS FOR DOING THE JOB THEY DID BECAUSE, FOR EXAMPLE, WHEN I BROUGHT UP INCLUDING SOFT PAY ITEMS. IT IS IMPORTANT THIS WE SUPPORT THE FRONT LINE IN THE BEST WAY POSSIBLE AND -- AS WE DISCUSSED THE VACATION PAY IT IS IMPORTANT THIS BECAUSE WE ARE ON THIS AGENDA ITEM THAT WE SUPPORT THE FRONTLINE. NOT JUST WILLY-NILLY BUT THE PERSON.

IT IS A STRESSFUL JOB. INDIVIDUALS DO IMPORTANT WORK AND IN CHARGE WITH SO MUCH.

AS WE UNFOLD THE NEW AGREEMENTS THAT WE HAVE FUNDED THAT WE DON'T OVER LOOK THE NEED TO HELP THEM ROTATE TO DECOMPRESS.

I WANT TO MAKE SURE WE ARE SUPPORTING THEM NOT ONLY WITH THIS GREAT AGREEMENT BUT ON THE DAILY I SUPPORTING THEM IN WAYS THAT WE WILL SHOW I GUESS, PSYCHOLOGICAL SUPPORT OR WE HAVE HR HERE STILL.

ALL HE AVENUES AVAILABLE. IF WE DON'T HAVE THEM IN ACCOMPLICE.

BRING NEL IN SO WE CAN BE A BENEFIT TO COWORKERS. >> COMMISSIONERS?

THANK YOU. >> LIKE TO THANK THE STAFF, OUR GENERAL COUNCIL'S OFFICE SPENDSESA, LOT OF TIME ON THIS THIS WAS THE MY THIRD OR FOURTH COUNT THE MID ROUND OF THE LAST ONE. AND WE HAVE AMAZING TEAM ON BOTH SIDES AND I APPRECIATE ALL THE OFFICERS THAT PARTICIPATED FROM THE HAYS COUNTY LAW ENFORCEMENT ASSOCIATION.

AND THEIR REPRESENTATIVES FROM THE COMBINED LAW ENFORCEMENT ASSOCIATIONS OF TEXAS THEY DO AN AMAZING JOB THIS GUESS SO SMOOTH BECAUSE WE UNDERSTAND WE ARE THERE TOGETHER AND ON THE SAME TEAM WE DON'T LOOK AT YOURSELF AS ADD VARIES WE LOOK AT YOURSELF AS TEAMMATE THIS IS STRIKES A BALANCE OF ACOUNSELABILITY AND UNDERSTANDING THAT WE HAVE TO FUND OR OFFICERS TO BUILD RECRUIT SPECIAL RETAIN OFFICERS AND I'M CONFIDENT WE HAVE BEEN ABLE TO DO THAT THIS AGREEMENT WILL,LLOW US TO MOVE ALONG THE DIRECTIONS AND OUR CURRENT OFFICERS APPRECIATE THAT THEY WANT THE 1S THAT ARE HIRED AFTER THEM TO BE GOOD OFFICERS AS WELL AND WANT TO BE SAFE ON THE STREETS AND FRO VIED THE SAFETY THEIR JOB REQUIRES THAT IS THE REASON WE GET ALONG WELL WHEN WE DO THESE BECAUSE WE UNDERSTAND THERE IS BALANCE BETWEEN THOSE THINGS AND THIS PROVIDES THAT LEVEL OF ACOUNSELABILITY THAT IS NECESSARY.

BIUNDERSTANDS LIKE WE HAVE MENTIONED THE RISKS THEY ARE TAKE ANDING WHAT IS REQUIREED

THEM TO DO THAT J.W. >> OFFICERS TODAY ARE ASKED TO DO MANY THINGS MORE THINGS THAN IN THE PAST AND IT -- WHEN WE STARTED THIS, THIS PROCESS. IT WAS A FEW DAYS AFTER OFFICER PUTNAM WAS KILLED AT THE SAN MARCUS POLICE DEPARTMENT. A LOT HAS HAPPENED SINCE.

WORLD HAS BEEN VERY INTERESTING PLACE. THIS COUNTRY CHALLENGED WITH MANY CHILDREN AND WILLS THROUGHOUT THAT WE ALL KEPT IN MIND WHEN WE WERE THERE FOR TO MAKE SURE ZEE BEST OFFICERS ON THE STREETS. THIS HELPS US DO THAT.

I MENTIONED TO THE TEAM, THOUGH I THANK YOU OUR LAST MEETING THE AMBUSH THAT HAPPENS IN DALLAS POLICE OFFICERS AND RAPID TRANSITERS A FEW YEARS AGO NOW. AFTER THAT, ONE OF THE CHIEFS I DON'T KNOW THE DART OR CITY OF DALLAS POLICE CHIEF OF COURSE THEY MADE STATEMENTS WHAT WAS ASKED OF OFFICERS. AND IT HAS CHANGED OUR ROCHES WEAR BODY CAMERAS AND TRAINED AT A LEVEL WE ARE PROWL. WE OPERATE OUR OWN TRAINING ACADEMY OUR SHERIFF OFFICE RUNS IT AND SELECT AND TRAIN AND KNOW WHAT THEY GOT BY THE TIME THEY GET OUT OF THAT ACADEMY AND I THINK WE NEED TO KEEP IN MIND WHAT THEY ARE ASKED TO DO MENTAL HEALTH OCCURRENCE WE TALKED ABOUT ARE OUR OFFICEROS ON THE FRONT CLOO SPIN WANT TO MAKE SURE THEY ISSUE PROPER LOW TRAIND AND PROTECT OUR COMMUNITY. I THINK -- WHEN WE APPROVE THE PAY INCREASES THAT WE HAVE TO UNDERSTAND THAT THE GIVING US AN ABILITY TO HIRE AND MAINTAIN THE HIGH LEVEL OFFICERS THAT TRULY CARE ABOUT WHEN THEY ARE DOING. THEY EXHIBIT THAT.

WE HAVE REALLY GREAT OFFICERS FROM NOT JUST THE SHOULD HAVE BEEN'S OFFICE AND DEPUTIES BUT CORRECTION ANDS CONSTABLES, TOO, AND WE ARE ASKING MUCH OF THEM AND THEY ARE WILLING TO STEP UP AND I TRULY BELIEVE THEY AS WELL ALL OF OUR INTERESTS IN TH HEARTS AND I'M PREERNLTIVE OF
