OK, here's yours. Not. We'll go ahead and move on to our action items. 00:03:22
Mr. Chair, sorry, I do. I just was trying to unmute myself. 00:03:26
OK. No problem. Sorry about that. Go ahead. I just. I just wanted to bring it up. It's. 00:03:30
I know it's a little early, but coming up is going to be. 00:03:37
Operation Green Lights. 00:03:40
To time that we as Valencia County Commission can light our building up. 00:03:43
With the green. 00:03:48
Light for our Veterans during Veterans Week. 00:03:50
I think that's a great. 00:03:54
Movement that's going across the country. 00:03:56
We did it last year and I'd like to go ahead and see that we do it again, start a resolution for that this year coming up, as well 00:03:59
as just letting our residents know that they are most. 00:04:04
Uh. 00:04:10
Most welcome to put up a green light on their house as well. The week of Veterans Week or for veteran's day. It's I think it's the 00:04:12
week. 00:04:16
Leading up to, but we'll get the dates figured out as we get closer. 00:04:21
I just think it's a really great movement to support and celebrate our. 00:04:25
Our veterans. 00:04:29
Thank you. Appreciate that. Anything else, Mishka? 00:04:32
Umm. 00:04:36
No, I we did go to the. 00:04:37
Nico annual conference just this past week and a few things came up about. 00:04:41
USDA had a. 00:04:47
The speaker from the rural development. 00:04:50
Office. 00:04:53
And they're talking about application application process for federal funds to rural counties. 00:04:54
They're talking about how they're trying to get those streamlined because they're huge applications and. 00:05:01
Lucky for us, we've got a an amazing grants department, but most small counties. 00:05:07
Actually what I found out, most counties in America do not have grand departments so. 00:05:13
They're trying to streamline those. 00:05:20
Application processes, so we can. 00:05:23
Get those fundings for things such as water and mental health. 00:05:28
Workforce development. To our to our communities. 00:05:32
So I know. 00:05:37
Our rule development office will. 00:05:39
Probably be in the loop, but if ahead of me, his or his team. 00:05:44
Have any questions? They said. Please reach out. 00:05:48
I just know a few of the folks had said. 00:05:52
Uh. 00:05:55
After they applied for some of these funds, the regulations were so hard and. 00:05:56
So strenuous that it it actually made. 00:06:00
Didn't make as much sense to go after the funds. 00:06:03
But. 00:06:06
I know ahead of me is is up on the up and up with it. 00:06:07
I just wanted to. 00:06:11
Talk about that application process being a little bit. 00:06:13
Easier going forward, hopefully. 00:06:16
Good. Thank you for sharing that. 00:06:19
Anything else, Commissioner? 00:06:21
That's it for me. 00:06:24
Didn't it? 00:06:25
OK. 00:06:26
We'll go ahead and move on to our action items at this time. 00:06:27
Item number six is approval of a resolution 2023. 00:06:30
It's a fiscal year 2024 final state budget adjustment. 00:06:35
It's true here. 00:06:39
Good morning, Mr. Chair, Commissioners, I have for you a resolution state budget adjustments. 00:06:42
These are the final budget adjustments necessary to close out fiscal year end 2023. 00:06:48
As you know, we've been, I've been bringing budget adjustments for the past two or three meetings so that I wouldn't have. 00:06:57
3 pages long right now. 00:07:03
We cannot submit any. 00:07:05
Line items or any funds to Department of Finance that have a negative fund balance. So we're having to adjust as. 00:07:08
As. 00:07:16
Money is spent and ask the treasurer's office balance reconciles the checking accounts. 00:07:18
It changes our total. So then we have to come back and adjust further. And I I'm open to any questions you may have. 00:07:24
Any questions, Mr. Hill Commissioners? 00:07:32
There's there's none. Is there a recommendation? 00:07:37
Mr. Chair, I'd like to make a motion to approve as presented. 00:07:39
We have a motion for approval. I'll second any discussion. 00:07:43
There being none, Commissioner Bell, your vote, Yes, Commissioner, on your vote. 00:07:47
Yes, I vote. Yes is approved. 00:07:50
Mr. Chairman and Commissioners, this resolution is 2023 Dash. 00:07:54
54. 00:07:57
OK. Item number seven, also approval of a resolution fourth quarter FY23. 00:08:13
Financial Reports in Mexico Department of Finance Administration, Mr. Hill. 00:08:19
Mr. Chairman, Commissioners, I have submitted the resolution for your consideration and I also placed on your. 00:08:23
Area there, the final fiscal year end 2023. 00:08:30
Financial report. 00:08:34
It looks really it all went pretty smooth. Everything seems on the up and up we were able to reconcile to. 00:08:38
To the statements that are produced or reconciled by the Treasures office. Just a couple of things to bring to your attention on 00:08:47
the first page, which is the recap page. 00:08:53
OK, so. 00:09:02
Counties are required to reserve. 00:09:04
Three twelfths of the expenditures in the general fund. So you're going to notice on the 2nd to the last column, there's a reserve 00:09:08
column there. That's three 12th of the total expenses for the fiscal year that we need to put aside and hold on to for 00:09:16
emergencies. And the same with the County Road fund, we're required to reserve 112th of the total expenses. 00:09:24
And that's what that figure is for $427,000. 00:09:32
Umm. 00:09:37
General fund interest on investments. Just to bring to your attention the investments that we do have in the general fund, we 00:09:38
collected 377,000 on interest. 00:09:44
On this funds itself. 00:09:51
There we did. 00:09:55
Have to do some temporary transfers from the general fund to address fund deficits for the grants. 00:09:56
For a lot of our grant funds. 00:10:04
And what happens is we spend the money and then we request reimbursement. We didn't receive the reimbursement before the end of 00:10:05
the fiscal year. So we created a negative fund balance and we have to borrow from the general fund to cover that. 00:10:11
Once we receive the money, we put the that back into the general fund. One we borrowed it almost $1.2 million. This at the end of 00:10:18
this fiscal year from the general fund. 00:10:23
And again, once we receive the money from the grants, we will put that money back in the general fund. 00:10:29
And other than that? 00:10:34
I think that's all I have that I wanted to bring to your attention, but I do stand for any questions you may have, and I do 00:10:37
recommend approval of this. 00:10:41
Item. 00:10:44
Thank you. 00:10:45
Commissioners, any questions, Mr. Hill? 00:10:46
Mr. Chair. 00:10:48
On on the reserves. 00:10:49
Can you invest that in like short term CD's like? 00:10:52
Does it have to be all in one deal or can you? There's like 3,000,000 something. 00:10:55
Could you do like a short? 00:10:59
CD term like 3 months and then put 1,000,000 in that, 1,000,000 in the next month and 1,000,000 in the following month. That way 00:11:01
you always have a recurring. 00:11:04
Every month you'll have money coming back in. 00:11:09
Mr. Chairman, Commissioner Massell, yes, we can invest that money, in fact our our our big investment, if you notice on the second 00:11:12
column. 00:11:16
The $15 million. 00:11:20
You know that that could be considered part of our reserve that we're investing, but you're you're right, we can invest short 00:11:22
term. 00:11:25
If. 00:11:29
We all did. If we decided that we wanted to do that, as long as we hold on to the money it, it doesn't matter where we have it. 00:11:30
I I even at this point because we are. 00:11:37
Coffers are healthy right now. We could even invest for. 00:11:40
As a whole or for longer term if we wanted to. 00:11:43
OK. 00:11:46
Any other questions, Commissioners? 00:11:49
There being none, is there a recommendation? 00:11:53
Mr. Chair. 00:11:55
Please, I'd like to make a motion to approve as presented. 00:11:56
We have a motion for approval. 00:11:59
2nd. 00:12:01
We got the 2nd from Commissioner again, any discussion. 00:12:02
There be no commissions, all your vote, Yes, Commissioner, on your vote. 00:12:07
Yes. 00:12:10
Yeah, there's a pretty. 00:12:12
It's permanent, commissioners. This resolution is 2023 Dash 55. 00:12:13
OK. Item number eight, approval of a resolution adopting fiscal year 2023, Dash 2024 final operating budget. Mr. Hill. Mr. 00:12:34
Chairman, Commissioners, I have presented you with a resolution to adopt the final 2023 Dash 2024. 00:12:42
Fiscal Year Budget and I also have a print out for you that I placed on your area there. 00:12:51
So. 00:12:58
The ending balances for fiscal year 2023 become the new cash balances for fiscal year 2024. It's rolled over in that manner. 00:12:59
This. 00:13:11
Mirrors the. 00:13:13
Preliminary budget to a certain extent, the only items that I'm allowed to. 00:13:16
Change from the preliminary budget to the new budget. It's grants. That's the only area that they opened up for us so that we can 00:13:22
make adjustments into a general fund. All other funds need to remain the same from the preliminary to the final budget. So there 00:13:29
are several changes that we're married to the grants based on the final. 00:13:36
Carry over amounts where? Where? 00:13:43
We. 00:13:48
You know, landed up spending this much to the end of the year. So we're carrying the remainder over. Other than that, it's pretty 00:13:48
straightforward and I stand for any questions. 00:13:54
Any questions Mr. here? 00:14:00
Computers Done is a recommendation. 00:14:05

For that I recommend approval and stand for any questions. 00:15:56
Good. Any questions on the CIP is presented to us today. 00:16:00
And this will also include OAP. I don't have her list, but she's going to come back with it. I don't know if you want to hear her 00:16:03
list, It's pretty much the same as she. Same as presented during presented during the workshop. 00:16:09
Good enough. 00:16:16
Questions commissioners. 00:16:18

OK. 00:16:25

If not, is there a recommendation? 00:16:58
Mr. Chair, I'd like to make a motion to approve. 00:17:00
Very good. Can we have a motion second for approval? 00:17:03
Any discussion on the motion of the 2nd? 00:17:06
Commissioner Bell, your vote, Yes on your vote. 00:17:09
Yes. 00:17:11

Mr. Chairman and Commissioners, this resolution is 2023 Dash 57. 00:17:15
OK. Item number ten, approval of the aging of the aging long term services junior bill agreement. 00:17:34
Yes. 00:17:41
Mr. Silva, Mr. Chairman. 00:17:42
Fellow Commissioners, how are you this afternoon, This morning, Sorry. 00:17:45
So again, we are here in front of you this morning asking consideration for the aging long term services junior Bill. 00:17:49
In the amount of $250,000. 00:17:56
4. 00:18:00
Senior Center Programs and improvements. 00:18:01
This junior bill operates on a reimbursement basis and reverts on June 30th, 2024. 00:18:04
We will work with Melissa. 00:18:12
To. 00:18:14
Identify projects that need to be completed at all senior centers. 00:18:16
The previous junior bill we received was exclusively for Bolen Senior Center so. 00:18:20
They made this one a little bit more vague. 00:18:25
Allowing us to. 00:18:28
Address needs at any of the senior centers with the in here in the county. 00:18:30
So with that said. 00:18:35
I respectfully recommend approval of this item and stand for any questions. 00:18:36
Commissioners, any questions to Mr. Silva? 00:18:41
There's none. Is there a recommendation? 00:18:45
Chair like to make a motion to approve. 00:18:46
Second motion for approval. Is there a second? 00:18:49
Second Discussion. Any discussion on the motion of the 2nd? 00:18:52
Here's, here's done, Commissioner Bell, your vote. Yes, Commissioner, on your vote. 00:18:57
Yes. 00:19:00
I vote yes is approved. Thank you guys. 00:19:01
OK. 00:19:03
It's me. 00:19:06
OK. Item number 11, approval of a professional services agreement with. 00:19:22
The Grant plant. 00:19:28
Mr. Silva. 00:19:29
Mr. Chairman, Commissioners. 00:19:30
Thank you again. We are requesting. 00:19:32
Consideration of a professional services agreement with the grant plan. 00:19:35
So just a little bit of history. We received funding from DFA last year to contract with the grant plan. 00:19:39
And they essentially assisted us with identification of. 00:19:46
Like Commissioner Oregon was saying some of the larger grants that the feds have available. 00:19:51
Pertaining to flood. 00:19:55
And homelessness prevention. 00:19:58
So like I said, this is a a second. 00:20:00
Year. 00:20:04
Agreement in which you all present, I apologize, in which you all. 00:20:05
Approved at last Commission meeting. 00:20:09
So we are going to requesting consideration to subcontract with them again. 00:20:11
So we can continue those. 00:20:16
Those larger grant efforts. 00:20:19
So that we can obtain substantial awards. 00:20:22
And I had some conversations with Commissioner Bissell at the retreat that we had back in early March, February. 00:20:25
You know that this is a wonderful opportunity. 00:20:32
To utilize their services, you know, if they can render us 100,200 thousand, 300,000, potentially $1,000,000 in grant funding, I 00:20:35
think it's well worth the investment and. 00:20:40
So be it that Department of Finance administration makes this. 00:20:45
Funding available. 00:20:49
We'll continue to apply in and subcontract with them. 00:20:51
With that said, I respectfully request approval of this item and stand for any further questions. 00:20:55
Thank you. Any questions to Mr. Silva? 00:21:00
There's there's none. Is there a recommendation? 00:21:04
Mr. Chair like to make a motion to approve. 00:21:07
Have a motion for approval. Is there a second? 00:21:10
2nd. 00:21:12
Any discussion on the motion of the 2nd? 00:21:13
There be none, Commissioner, Believe. Vote yes, Commissioner, on your vote. 00:21:16
Yes. 00:21:19
No, but yes is approved. 00:21:20
OK, item twelve, Approval of the Department of Finance Administration Junior Bill Agreement. 00:21:37
Mr. Silva. 00:21:41
Mr. Chairman, Commissioners. 00:21:43
Again, we are requesting consideration to approve a junior bill agreement. 00:21:46
From Department of Finance and Administration. 00:21:51
To contract for sexual assault, nurse examiner and child advocacy services in Valencia. 00:21:54
Socorro, Catron and Torrance counties in the amount of $25,000. 00:22:01
So I wanted to give you a quick. 00:22:07
History of of what took place with this particular appropriation, so. 00:22:09
In early May. 00:22:13
I received a phone call from DFA. 00:22:15
Asking. 00:22:17
If we were the recipients of $100,000. 00:22:19
To contract for sexual assault nurse examiners. 00:22:23
And and I. 00:22:26
Contacted Manageable Net and Warden. 00:22:28
Give tell us about it And they had no idea. 00:22:30
So. 00:22:33
I relate that information to DFA. They then informed me that. 00:22:34
The. 00:22:38
The $100,000. 00:22:40
Would be divided up amongst the four counties that were indicated in the original. 00:22:42
Language. 00:22:48
So ultimately. 00:22:49
That's what happened. 00:22:51
And two days after we made that decision, we were in contact with Valencia Shelter Services and. 00:22:53
They were in fact some of the driving force behind this. 00:23:00
Legislation requests for funding. So with that said, I have. 00:23:04
Miss Stephanie Wood and some of the team members from Valencia Shelter Services. 00:23:10
Just to identify for you all on how this anticipated funding is going to be utilized? 00:23:14
Mr. Chairman, Commissioners, thank you for letting me speak today. 00:23:27
I wanted to give a bite size. 00:23:31
A little bit about what we do and I will let the team members here with me talk a little bit more in depth. 00:23:34
Umm. 00:23:40
The junior bill appropriation we were successful in getting this year. 00:23:41
Was moved into the four counties. The whole request for was for 100,000 for our sane unit that provides. 00:23:47
Sexual assault Nurse examination for victims of sexual assault. 00:23:55
Child abuse and domestic violence. 00:24:00
I'm here today to ask that that appropriation be provided to Valencia Shelter Services who has been in action with victim Services 00:24:03
since 1989 for over 30 years. 00:24:08
The team can give you more in depth of what it is that we provide and I can stand for any questions after that. 00:24:15
Thank you. 00:24:21
Hi, my name is Sandy Martinez and I'm the Director of Forensic Services for Valencia Shelter Services. 00:24:25
So I oversee the same program and the Child Advocacy Center forensic interview program. 00:24:30
We work well with all of our community partners, Law enforcement CYFD. 00:24:36
Medical professionals. Mental health professionals. The DA's office. 00:24:41
Umm. 00:24:45
And some advocates in this county we serve Valencia, Socorro, Torrance and Catron County. 00:24:47
So we our newest service is our SANE unit, So SANE stands for Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners. 00:24:55
And we partner with Albuquerque Saying Collaborative. This is Yolanda Audubon. She's our sane nurse from Albuquerque San 00:25:02
Collaborative that comes down and she's our main VS nurse right now. 00:25:07
As a VSTS advocates, we provide the advocacy services during those same exams. 00:25:14
And so. 00:25:22
We serve all of those rural counties which we saw the need to have something closer. 00:25:24
To home for our survivors to be able to make it to a sane exam if they need one. Traveling and transportation was the main issue. 00:25:30
Um, so that's why we saw that need and we worked with them to open it up. We have a couple of years to make it our own sane unit. 00:25:39
So it's kind of a transition from a satellite or Albuquerque saying to BS saying. 00:25:48
So we'll be hiring our own medical directors and nurses and things in a few years. 00:25:54
So we provide. 00:25:59
Exams for sexual assault, so acute exam, so if anybody has been sexually assaulted. 00:26:02
Recently within five days for an adult, three days for a child. 00:26:08
We can do a sexual assault evidence kit, DNA evidence, and we released that evidence to law enforcement. 00:26:12
Who then takes it to be tested for DNA? 00:26:21
We also provide exams for domestic violence injuries. 00:26:24
So if they have any injuries on their body, our nurse can. 00:26:29
Examine them and take photos and they also testify in court. 00:26:33
On behalf of our victims. 00:26:38
Umm. 00:26:41
I know it mentions child advocacy, so we do provide a forensic interviews. 00:26:43
For children in child abuse investigations. So we work well with law enforcement, CFD and we interviewed the kids and they. 00:26:49
Observe in a different room. 00:26:56
To provide a safe and child friendly environment for children. 00:26:58
Umm. 00:27:01
And our advocates work with families during all of those services and they offer all of the services we have. 00:27:03
And they also give them resources. We can provide hotel rooms with funds. We can provide phones if they need a phone. 00:27:09
We can provide clothes, hygiene items. 00:27:17
All sorts of things. We also help our victims complete CVRC application so they can access funds through whatever their 00:27:20
victimization is through that. 00:27:25
Would you like to? 00:27:30
In addition to we do Pediatrics to elderly as she had mentioned, but one thing we also do provide is we provide medications for 00:27:32
any sexually transmitted diseases. We give it prophylactics so that hopefully they don't come up with anything. We also provide 00:27:40
emergency on pregnancy prevention. So aside from all of our exams that we do, we do provide that medical care as well. 00:27:48
Mr. Chair, Commissioners, thank you for letting us speak today. I did want to add a couple of points. 00:28:02
Prior to Valencia Shelter Services taking this initiative, survivors in our community would have to travel up to two hours to seek 00:28:08
this medical service. 00:28:13
That is an immense amount of time for individuals who have been traumatized as well as lack of resources. 00:28:19
Some of the families that would go to these same medical units would have to decide between groceries or gas that. 00:28:26
Week in order to seek service. 00:28:33
The other item is that we believe that when we can support survivors in this way. 00:28:35
That when we can see them through the criminal justice system. 00:28:41
That they will be better for it and can we can hold offenders accountable in our community perpetrators. 00:28:45
That can create a safety net for us in this community. 00:28:52
And so that was the initiative as to why we brought this same unit to our offices. 00:28:56
We were unfunded for a full year before we even start funding. 00:29:02
We will prior fiscal year received another junior bill funding through the Crime Victims Reparation Commission. 00:29:07
But it was unfortunately a one time fund. 00:29:14
And the funding that we are asking for in the 25,000 in part of the whole will allow us to provide an advocate that supports a 00:29:17
survivor through the whole exam. 00:29:23
And will follow up in court hearings so that they never have to go and walk through this alone. 00:29:29
The additionally that funding will provide the. 00:29:35
Basic needs. 00:29:39
Items that survivors need. 00:29:40
I'd be that food would be that. 00:29:43
Clothing, any of the basic amenities. 00:29:44
And we can also provide. 00:29:47
Emergency shelter to those who have no place to go. 00:29:50
So this funding really does impact our community greatly. 00:29:54
And so thank you for letting us speak today. 00:29:58
Good. 00:30:01
You know, a couple months ago or thereabouts, I was invited to tour your facility for director. I can't remember her name. I'm 00:30:01
sorry. 00:30:04
Vicki, yes. And you know. 00:30:08
Umm. 00:30:10
It's incredible. 00:30:12
What you guys do there? 00:30:13
Never, never knew about it. 00:30:15
Or to that, to that extent? 00:30:17
You know, in one hand it's very unfortunate that we have to have you in our community, but that the other in the other hand it's 00:30:20
very fortunate that we do have you. 00:30:23
Because you guys do provide a lot of services that. 00:30:27
Are are definitely needed so. 00:30:30
Big shout out to you guys and thank you for all you do. 00:30:32
Questions, Commissioners, comments. Anything else, Mr. Chair, please? 00:30:35
What I would like to see, and I mean I don't speak for the whole Commission, but. 00:30:40
Before before. 00:30:43
January. 00:30:46
Maybe you guys could come back before the Commission and I would love to sponsor and do a resolution. 00:30:47
Showing Burlington County support for you guys. That way you can take it up to the Roundhouse. 00:30:52
And let let them know that the counties do support you and what you do. 00:30:56
So I would love to sponsor you guys and have you come back before and? 00:31:00
And do a resolution to where we do support you guys. 00:31:03
Mr. Chairman, Commissioner, thank you so much for that. We would greatly appreciate it and yes, we're here to serve this 00:31:06
community, we're very passionate about it. 00:31:09
So do a really big thing now and I want it because of the movie that came out. But we also, when we do have our domestic violence 00:31:16
victims, we assess for trafficking, which we see a lot of unfortunately. 00:31:22
And October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. We really need to get that purple out there. During that time, we need to let 00:31:29
our community know that we're there for them and it's OK to step up and come out and they'll be. We need to make them feel safe. 00:31:36
And Sexual awareness Month is April. We have our chill colors. We need to really get out there, start decorating and start. 00:31:44
Letting the community know we need to start talking about it instead of just. 00:31:51
Keeping it behind closed doors, so we want them to know there's a safe place to go. 00:31:55
Thank you. 00:32:01
Anything else, Commissioners? 00:32:02
OK. And this is there anything else from you that you need to add to this? Mr. Chairman? Commissioners, I just wanted to make 00:32:05
note, upon full execution of this agreement from DFA, we will have an MO U established between the County and Valencia Shelter 00:32:12
Services just so we can identify how the funds are going to be controlled and we can establish a a payment schedule. 00:32:18
And that'll be discussed with legal at the appropriate time. 00:32:26
Thank you. 00:32:29
Anything else, Commissioners? 00:32:31

Approval of a memorandum of Understanding with County of Cibola for the purpose of providing housing and care for animals 00:34:18
originating from the jurisdiction of the County and. 00:34:23
Just we have you somewhere. Yes, Chairman and commissioners, this is an MOU between Valencia County and Cibola County, our 00:34:28
neighbors to the West. 00:34:32
It's the same MO U that we basically used for Isleta Blend. 00:34:38
All of the municipalities that utilize our facility, they are our partners. They help us out in the Highland Meadows area. We help 00:34:43
them in the Laguna, Laguna Pueblo area. 00:34:47
It's basically allowing them to bring up to five animals a month to our facility if they need space or or somewhere to house them. 00:34:53
Like I said it, it's basically to allow us both to help each other out. 00:35:00
In the outer reaches of our community and I I recommend approval. 00:35:08
OK. Any questions of Mr. Weston? 00:35:15
Is your zone as a recommendation. 00:35:20
Motion to Approve. 00:35:23
You have a motion and 2nd for approval. Any discussion on the motion of the 2nd? 00:35:24

Thank you. 00:35:38
OK, item sixteen approval of resolution supporting the right of county citizens to participate in the referendum process. 00:35:50

The similar version of it. 00:36:00
Came to me with the indication that other counties have approved that of approved the similar resolution. 00:36:01
And they are just looking for continued support from from county. So this is before us for consideration. 00:36:09
Any questions on the resolution? 00:36:15
There being none, is there a recommendation? 00:36:20
Mr. Chair like to make a motion to approve. 00:36:22
I'll second any discussion on the motion and 2nd. 00:36:24
There be none, Commissioner, Believe. Vote yes, Commissioner, on your vote. 00:36:28
Yes. 00:36:31
No, but yes, it is approved. 00:36:32
Mr. Chairman, Commissioners, this resolution is. 00:36:34
2023, yes. 00:36:38
50. 00:36:39
58. 00:36:41
Hey item Seventeen Approval of resolution providing for the increased hiring pay rates for deputies with experience as a certified 00:36:59
law enforcement officer. 00:37:03
I'm not sure if Noah, go ahead. 00:37:07
Chairman, Commissioners, thank you guys for your time. 00:37:09
This resolution would allow us to hire lateral law enforcement officers that are already certified that have experience at a 00:37:12
higher pay rate than our normal starting rate. 00:37:16
You know, one of our issues is being recruitment and trying to get people apply. We have not had a lot of very few lateral 00:37:23
officers apply. 00:37:27
And right now we have a very, very young department. We have guys that have two years experience that are training, guys that just 00:37:32
get hired. 00:37:35
So we we're short a lot of experience in our department right now. 00:37:40
Trying to do something to recruit people. 00:37:43
To come to our department that have some experience. 00:37:46
And this is part of that program. 00:37:49
It would allow us to hire them at a pay rate which is in compliance with what our Union gives people on their. 00:37:52
Longevity raises, so it's not going to. 00:37:58
Give them more money than somebody already works here. 00:38:01
And it can only go up to 10 years. 00:38:04
Again, this is just to try and recruit more people, to recruit more certified officers and more experienced officers into the 00:38:07
county. 00:38:10
And. 00:38:14
Stand for any questions and I would recommend this get approved. 00:38:15
Mr. Chair, Mr. Chairman, I'm in full support of this. I think it's a. 00:38:19
It's the times we live in now and I think it helped us get a little bit. 00:38:23
More fully staffed over there and I think it's a great idea and I think. 00:38:27
We're a little bit behind by not doing this sooner, but I think it's a good idea. It's very common practice across the country. 00:38:31
Thank you Danny for sharing that. 00:38:37
Any questions, Commissioners Chair, please. 00:38:39
Danny, yes, Sir. 00:38:43
Have we talked to Loretta about how this will affect our budget and? 00:38:46
Do we have that money accounted for? 00:38:50
Yes, Sir, we'll be fine. 00:38:51
Any other questions? 00:38:54
There's there's none as a recommendation. 00:38:57
Mr. Chair, I'd like to make a motion to approve. 00:38:59
Have a motion for approval. Is there a second? 00:39:02

Items, Commissioners, anything you wish to bring to the table today? 00:02:44
Mr. Chair, please, I would like to remind the Valencia County that National Night Out is tomorrow night. I know they're going to 00:02:47
be. 00:02:51
Celebrations all throughout the county, my district, Banneker Park. 00:02:55
I think the Sheriff's Department is. 00:03:00
Ann Parish over there, heading to. 00:03:03
Meadow Lakes. 00:03:07
So please come out and I know we've got a lot of school supplies and stuff for kids and. 00:03:08
Come out and. 00:03:12
Celebrate with police officers. 00:03:13
It's normal. 00:03:15
Thank you, Commissioner. 00:03:17
Anything else? 00:03:18
OK, here's yours. Not. We'll go ahead and move on to our action items. 00:03:22
Mr. Chair, sorry, I do. I just was trying to unmute myself. 00:03:26
OK. No problem. Sorry about that. Go ahead. I just. I just wanted to bring it up. It's. 00:03:30
I know it's a little early, but coming up is going to be. 00:03:37
Operation Green Lights. 00:03:40
To time that we as Valencia County Commission can light our building up. 00:03:43
With the green. 00:03:48
Light for our Veterans during Veterans Week. 00:03:50
I think that's a great. 00:03:54
Movement that's going across the country. 00:03:56
We did it last year and I'd like to go ahead and see that we do it again, start a resolution for that this year coming up, as well 00:03:59
as just letting our residents know that they are most. 00:04:04
Uh. 00:04:10
Most welcome to put up a green light on their house as well. The week of Veterans Week or for veteran's day. It's I think it's the 00:04:12
week. 00:04:16
Leading up to, but we'll get the dates figured out as we get closer. 00:04:21
I just think it's a really great movement to support and celebrate our. 00:04:25
Our veterans. 00:04:29
Thank you. Appreciate that. Anything else, Mishka? 00:04:32
Umm. 00:04:36
No, I we did go to the. 00:04:37
Nico annual conference just this past week and a few things came up about. 00:04:41
USDA had a. 00:04:47
The speaker from the rural development. 00:04:50
Office. 00:04:53
And they're talking about application application process for federal funds to rural counties. 00:04:54
They're talking about how they're trying to get those streamlined because they're huge applications and. 00:05:01
Lucky for us, we've got a an amazing grants department, but most small counties. 00:05:07
Actually what I found out, most counties in America do not have grand departments so. 00:05:13
They're trying to streamline those. 00:05:20
Application processes, so we can. 00:05:23
Get those fundings for things such as water and mental health. 00:05:28
Workforce development. To our to our communities. 00:05:32
So I know. 00:05:37
Our rule development office will. 00:05:39
Probably be in the loop, but if ahead of me, his or his team. 00:05:44
Have any questions? They said. Please reach out. 00:05:48
I just know a few of the folks had said. 00:05:52
Uh. 00:05:55
After they applied for some of these funds, the regulations were so hard and. 00:05:56
So strenuous that it it actually made. 00:06:00
Didn't make as much sense to go after the funds. 00:06:03
But. 00:06:06
I know ahead of me is is up on the up and up with it. 00:06:07
I just wanted to. 00:06:11
Talk about that application process being a little bit. 00:06:13
Easier going forward, hopefully. 00:06:16
Good. Thank you for sharing that. 00:06:19
Anything else, Commissioner? 00:06:21
That's it for me. 00:06:24
Didn't it? 00:06:25
OK. 00:06:26
We'll go ahead and move on to our action items at this time. 00:06:27
Item number six is approval of a resolution 2023. 00:06:30
It's a fiscal year 2024 final state budget adjustment. 00:06:35
It's true here. 00:06:39
Good morning, Mr. Chair, Commissioners, I have for you a resolution state budget adjustments. 00:06:42
These are the final budget adjustments necessary to close out fiscal year end 2023. 00:06:48
As you know, we've been, I've been bringing budget adjustments for the past two or three meetings so that I wouldn't have. 00:06:57
3 pages long right now. 00:07:03
We cannot submit any. 00:07:05
Line items or any funds to Department of Finance that have a negative fund balance. So we're having to adjust as. 00:07:08
As. 00:07:16
Money is spent and ask the treasurer's office balance reconciles the checking accounts. 00:07:18
It changes our total. So then we have to come back and adjust further. And I I'm open to any questions you may have. 00:07:24
Any questions, Mr. Hill Commissioners? 00:07:32
There's there's none. Is there a recommendation? 00:07:37
Mr. Chair, I'd like to make a motion to approve as presented. 00:07:39
We have a motion for approval. I'll second any discussion. 00:07:43
There being none, Commissioner Bell, your vote, Yes, Commissioner, on your vote. 00:07:47
Yes, I vote. Yes is approved. 00:07:50
Mr. Chairman and Commissioners, this resolution is 2023 Dash. 00:07:54
54. 00:07:57
OK. Item number seven, also approval of a resolution fourth quarter FY23. 00:08:13
Financial Reports in Mexico Department of Finance Administration, Mr. Hill. 00:08:19
Mr. Chairman, Commissioners, I have submitted the resolution for your consideration and I also placed on your. 00:08:23
Area there, the final fiscal year end 2023. 00:08:30
Financial report. 00:08:34
It looks really it all went pretty smooth. Everything seems on the up and up we were able to reconcile to. 00:08:38
To the statements that are produced or reconciled by the Treasures office. Just a couple of things to bring to your attention on 00:08:47
the first page, which is the recap page. 00:08:53
OK, so. 00:09:02
Counties are required to reserve. 00:09:04
Three twelfths of the expenditures in the general fund. So you're going to notice on the 2nd to the last column, there's a reserve 00:09:08
column there. That's three 12th of the total expenses for the fiscal year that we need to put aside and hold on to for 00:09:16
emergencies. And the same with the County Road fund, we're required to reserve 112th of the total expenses. 00:09:24
And that's what that figure is for $427,000. 00:09:32
Umm. 00:09:37
General fund interest on investments. Just to bring to your attention the investments that we do have in the general fund, we 00:09:38
collected 377,000 on interest. 00:09:44
On this funds itself. 00:09:51
There we did. 00:09:55
Have to do some temporary transfers from the general fund to address fund deficits for the grants. 00:09:56
For a lot of our grant funds. 00:10:04
And what happens is we spend the money and then we request reimbursement. We didn't receive the reimbursement before the end of 00:10:05
the fiscal year. So we created a negative fund balance and we have to borrow from the general fund to cover that. 00:10:11
Once we receive the money, we put the that back into the general fund. One we borrowed it almost $1.2 million. This at the end of 00:10:18
this fiscal year from the general fund. 00:10:23
And again, once we receive the money from the grants, we will put that money back in the general fund. 00:10:29
And other than that? 00:10:34
I think that's all I have that I wanted to bring to your attention, but I do stand for any questions you may have, and I do 00:10:37
recommend approval of this. 00:10:41
Item. 00:10:44
Thank you. 00:10:45
Commissioners, any questions, Mr. Hill? 00:10:46
Mr. Chair. 00:10:48
On on the reserves. 00:10:49
Can you invest that in like short term CD's like? 00:10:52
Does it have to be all in one deal or can you? There's like 3,000,000 something. 00:10:55
Could you do like a short? 00:10:59
CD term like 3 months and then put 1,000,000 in that, 1,000,000 in the next month and 1,000,000 in the following month. That way 00:11:01
you always have a recurring. 00:11:04
Every month you'll have money coming back in. 00:11:09
Mr. Chairman, Commissioner Massell, yes, we can invest that money, in fact our our our big investment, if you notice on the second 00:11:12
column. 00:11:16
The $15 million. 00:11:20
You know that that could be considered part of our reserve that we're investing, but you're you're right, we can invest short 00:11:22
term. 00:11:25
If. 00:11:29
We all did. If we decided that we wanted to do that, as long as we hold on to the money it, it doesn't matter where we have it. 00:11:30
I I even at this point because we are. 00:11:37
Coffers are healthy right now. We could even invest for. 00:11:40
As a whole or for longer term if we wanted to. 00:11:43
OK. 00:11:46
Any other questions, Commissioners? 00:11:49
There being none, is there a recommendation? 00:11:53
Mr. Chair. 00:11:55
Please, I'd like to make a motion to approve as presented. 00:11:56
We have a motion for approval. 00:11:59
2nd. 00:12:01
We got the 2nd from Commissioner again, any discussion. 00:12:02
There be no commissions, all your vote, Yes, Commissioner, on your vote. 00:12:07
Yes. 00:12:10
Yeah, there's a pretty. 00:12:12
It's permanent, commissioners. This resolution is 2023 Dash 55. 00:12:13
OK. Item number eight, approval of a resolution adopting fiscal year 2023, Dash 2024 final operating budget. Mr. Hill. Mr. 00:12:34
Chairman, Commissioners, I have presented you with a resolution to adopt the final 2023 Dash 2024. 00:12:42
Fiscal Year Budget and I also have a print out for you that I placed on your area there. 00:12:51
So. 00:12:58
The ending balances for fiscal year 2023 become the new cash balances for fiscal year 2024. It's rolled over in that manner. 00:12:59
This. 00:13:11
Mirrors the. 00:13:13
Preliminary budget to a certain extent, the only items that I'm allowed to. 00:13:16
Change from the preliminary budget to the new budget. It's grants. That's the only area that they opened up for us so that we can 00:13:22
make adjustments into a general fund. All other funds need to remain the same from the preliminary to the final budget. So there 00:13:29
are several changes that we're married to the grants based on the final. 00:13:36
Carry over amounts where? Where? 00:13:43
We. 00:13:48
You know, landed up spending this much to the end of the year. So we're carrying the remainder over. Other than that, it's pretty 00:13:48
straightforward and I stand for any questions. 00:13:54
Any questions Mr. here? 00:14:00
Computers Done is a recommendation. 00:14:05

For that I recommend approval and stand for any questions. 00:15:56
Good. Any questions on the CIP is presented to us today. 00:16:00
And this will also include OAP. I don't have her list, but she's going to come back with it. I don't know if you want to hear her 00:16:03

Good enough. 00:16:16
Questions commissioners. 00:16:18

OK. 00:16:25
So we'll be approving the OPI CIP and the one for the County CIP. Thank you, Mr. Chair. If you'd like that for the record, I could 00:16:26
read the OP's into the record if you'd like. Please do the real construction renovation phase for 850,000 Berlin Senior Center, 00:16:33

If not, is there a recommendation? 00:16:58
Mr. Chair, I'd like to make a motion to approve. 00:17:00
Very good. Can we have a motion second for approval? 00:17:03
Any discussion on the motion of the 2nd? 00:17:06
Commissioner Bell, your vote, Yes on your vote. 00:17:09
Yes. 00:17:11

Mr. Chairman and Commissioners, this resolution is 2023 Dash 57. 00:17:15
OK. Item number ten, approval of the aging of the aging long term services junior bill agreement. 00:17:34
Yes. 00:17:41
Mr. Silva, Mr. Chairman. 00:17:42
Fellow Commissioners, how are you this afternoon, This morning, Sorry. 00:17:45
So again, we are here in front of you this morning asking consideration for the aging long term services junior Bill. 00:17:49
In the amount of $250,000. 00:17:56
4. 00:18:00
Senior Center Programs and improvements. 00:18:01
This junior bill operates on a reimbursement basis and reverts on June 30th, 2024. 00:18:04
We will work with Melissa. 00:18:12
To. 00:18:14
Identify projects that need to be completed at all senior centers. 00:18:16
The previous junior bill we received was exclusively for Bolen Senior Center so. 00:18:20
They made this one a little bit more vague. 00:18:25
Allowing us to. 00:18:28
Address needs at any of the senior centers with the in here in the county. 00:18:30
So with that said. 00:18:35
I respectfully recommend approval of this item and stand for any questions. 00:18:36
Commissioners, any questions to Mr. Silva? 00:18:41
There's none. Is there a recommendation? 00:18:45
Chair like to make a motion to approve. 00:18:46
Second motion for approval. Is there a second? 00:18:49
Second Discussion. Any discussion on the motion of the 2nd? 00:18:52
Here's, here's done, Commissioner Bell, your vote. Yes, Commissioner, on your vote. 00:18:57
Yes. 00:19:00
I vote yes is approved. Thank you guys. 00:19:01
OK. 00:19:03
It's me. 00:19:06
OK. Item number 11, approval of a professional services agreement with. 00:19:22
The Grant plant. 00:19:28
Mr. Silva. 00:19:29
Mr. Chairman, Commissioners. 00:19:30
Thank you again. We are requesting. 00:19:32
Consideration of a professional services agreement with the grant plan. 00:19:35
So just a little bit of history. We received funding from DFA last year to contract with the grant plan. 00:19:39
And they essentially assisted us with identification of. 00:19:46
Like Commissioner Oregon was saying some of the larger grants that the feds have available. 00:19:51
Pertaining to flood. 00:19:55
And homelessness prevention. 00:19:58
So like I said, this is a a second. 00:20:00
Year. 00:20:04
Agreement in which you all present, I apologize, in which you all. 00:20:05
Approved at last Commission meeting. 00:20:09
So we are going to requesting consideration to subcontract with them again. 00:20:11
So we can continue those. 00:20:16
Those larger grant efforts. 00:20:19
So that we can obtain substantial awards. 00:20:22
And I had some conversations with Commissioner Bissell at the retreat that we had back in early March, February. 00:20:25
You know that this is a wonderful opportunity. 00:20:32
To utilize their services, you know, if they can render us 100,200 thousand, 300,000, potentially $1,000,000 in grant funding, I 00:20:35
think it's well worth the investment and. 00:20:40
So be it that Department of Finance administration makes this. 00:20:45
Funding available. 00:20:49
We'll continue to apply in and subcontract with them. 00:20:51
With that said, I respectfully request approval of this item and stand for any further questions. 00:20:55
Thank you. Any questions to Mr. Silva? 00:21:00
There's there's none. Is there a recommendation? 00:21:04
Mr. Chair like to make a motion to approve. 00:21:07
Have a motion for approval. Is there a second? 00:21:10
2nd. 00:21:12
Any discussion on the motion of the 2nd? 00:21:13
There be none, Commissioner, Believe. Vote yes, Commissioner, on your vote. 00:21:16
Yes. 00:21:19
No, but yes is approved. 00:21:20
OK, item twelve, Approval of the Department of Finance Administration Junior Bill Agreement. 00:21:37
Mr. Silva. 00:21:41
Mr. Chairman, Commissioners. 00:21:43
Again, we are requesting consideration to approve a junior bill agreement. 00:21:46
From Department of Finance and Administration. 00:21:51
To contract for sexual assault, nurse examiner and child advocacy services in Valencia. 00:21:54
Socorro, Catron and Torrance counties in the amount of $25,000. 00:22:01
So I wanted to give you a quick. 00:22:07
History of of what took place with this particular appropriation, so. 00:22:09
In early May. 00:22:13
I received a phone call from DFA. 00:22:15
Asking. 00:22:17
If we were the recipients of $100,000. 00:22:19
To contract for sexual assault nurse examiners. 00:22:23
And and I. 00:22:26
Contacted Manageable Net and Warden. 00:22:28
Give tell us about it And they had no idea. 00:22:30
So. 00:22:33
I relate that information to DFA. They then informed me that. 00:22:34
The. 00:22:38
The $100,000. 00:22:40
Would be divided up amongst the four counties that were indicated in the original. 00:22:42
Language. 00:22:48
So ultimately. 00:22:49
That's what happened. 00:22:51
And two days after we made that decision, we were in contact with Valencia Shelter Services and. 00:22:53
They were in fact some of the driving force behind this. 00:23:00
Legislation requests for funding. So with that said, I have. 00:23:04
Miss Stephanie Wood and some of the team members from Valencia Shelter Services. 00:23:10
Just to identify for you all on how this anticipated funding is going to be utilized? 00:23:14
Mr. Chairman, Commissioners, thank you for letting me speak today. 00:23:27
I wanted to give a bite size. 00:23:31
A little bit about what we do and I will let the team members here with me talk a little bit more in depth. 00:23:34
Umm. 00:23:40
The junior bill appropriation we were successful in getting this year. 00:23:41
Was moved into the four counties. The whole request for was for 100,000 for our sane unit that provides. 00:23:47
Sexual assault Nurse examination for victims of sexual assault. 00:23:55
Child abuse and domestic violence. 00:24:00
I'm here today to ask that that appropriation be provided to Valencia Shelter Services who has been in action with victim Services 00:24:03
since 1989 for over 30 years. 00:24:08
The team can give you more in depth of what it is that we provide and I can stand for any questions after that. 00:24:15
Thank you. 00:24:21
Hi, my name is Sandy Martinez and I'm the Director of Forensic Services for Valencia Shelter Services. 00:24:25
So I oversee the same program and the Child Advocacy Center forensic interview program. 00:24:30
We work well with all of our community partners, Law enforcement CYFD. 00:24:36
Medical professionals. Mental health professionals. The DA's office. 00:24:41
Umm. 00:24:45
And some advocates in this county we serve Valencia, Socorro, Torrance and Catron County. 00:24:47
So we our newest service is our SANE unit, So SANE stands for Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners. 00:24:55
And we partner with Albuquerque Saying Collaborative. This is Yolanda Audubon. She's our sane nurse from Albuquerque San 00:25:02
Collaborative that comes down and she's our main VS nurse right now. 00:25:07
As a VSTS advocates, we provide the advocacy services during those same exams. 00:25:14
And so. 00:25:22
We serve all of those rural counties which we saw the need to have something closer. 00:25:24
To home for our survivors to be able to make it to a sane exam if they need one. Traveling and transportation was the main issue. 00:25:30
Um, so that's why we saw that need and we worked with them to open it up. We have a couple of years to make it our own sane unit. 00:25:39
So it's kind of a transition from a satellite or Albuquerque saying to BS saying. 00:25:48
So we'll be hiring our own medical directors and nurses and things in a few years. 00:25:54
So we provide. 00:25:59
Exams for sexual assault, so acute exam, so if anybody has been sexually assaulted. 00:26:02
Recently within five days for an adult, three days for a child. 00:26:08
We can do a sexual assault evidence kit, DNA evidence, and we released that evidence to law enforcement. 00:26:12
Who then takes it to be tested for DNA? 00:26:21
We also provide exams for domestic violence injuries. 00:26:24
So if they have any injuries on their body, our nurse can. 00:26:29
Examine them and take photos and they also testify in court. 00:26:33
On behalf of our victims. 00:26:38
Umm. 00:26:41
I know it mentions child advocacy, so we do provide a forensic interviews. 00:26:43
For children in child abuse investigations. So we work well with law enforcement, CFD and we interviewed the kids and they. 00:26:49
Observe in a different room. 00:26:56
To provide a safe and child friendly environment for children. 00:26:58
Umm. 00:27:01
And our advocates work with families during all of those services and they offer all of the services we have. 00:27:03
And they also give them resources. We can provide hotel rooms with funds. We can provide phones if they need a phone. 00:27:09
We can provide clothes, hygiene items. 00:27:17
All sorts of things. We also help our victims complete CVRC application so they can access funds through whatever their 00:27:20
victimization is through that. 00:27:25
Would you like to? 00:27:30
In addition to we do Pediatrics to elderly as she had mentioned, but one thing we also do provide is we provide medications for 00:27:32
any sexually transmitted diseases. We give it prophylactics so that hopefully they don't come up with anything. We also provide 00:27:40
emergency on pregnancy prevention. So aside from all of our exams that we do, we do provide that medical care as well. 00:27:48
Mr. Chair, Commissioners, thank you for letting us speak today. I did want to add a couple of points. 00:28:02
Prior to Valencia Shelter Services taking this initiative, survivors in our community would have to travel up to two hours to seek 00:28:08
this medical service. 00:28:13
That is an immense amount of time for individuals who have been traumatized as well as lack of resources. 00:28:19
Some of the families that would go to these same medical units would have to decide between groceries or gas that. 00:28:26
Week in order to seek service. 00:28:33
The other item is that we believe that when we can support survivors in this way. 00:28:35
That when we can see them through the criminal justice system. 00:28:41
That they will be better for it and can we can hold offenders accountable in our community perpetrators. 00:28:45
That can create a safety net for us in this community. 00:28:52
And so that was the initiative as to why we brought this same unit to our offices. 00:28:56
We were unfunded for a full year before we even start funding. 00:29:02
We will prior fiscal year received another junior bill funding through the Crime Victims Reparation Commission. 00:29:07
But it was unfortunately a one time fund. 00:29:14
And the funding that we are asking for in the 25,000 in part of the whole will allow us to provide an advocate that supports a 00:29:17
survivor through the whole exam. 00:29:23
And will follow up in court hearings so that they never have to go and walk through this alone. 00:29:29
The additionally that funding will provide the. 00:29:35
Basic needs. 00:29:39
Items that survivors need. 00:29:40
I'd be that food would be that. 00:29:43
Clothing, any of the basic amenities. 00:29:44
And we can also provide. 00:29:47
Emergency shelter to those who have no place to go. 00:29:50
So this funding really does impact our community greatly. 00:29:54
And so thank you for letting us speak today. 00:29:58
Good. 00:30:01
You know, a couple months ago or thereabouts, I was invited to tour your facility for director. I can't remember her name. I'm 00:30:01
sorry. 00:30:04
Vicki, yes. And you know. 00:30:08
Umm. 00:30:10
It's incredible. 00:30:12
What you guys do there? 00:30:13
Never, never knew about it. 00:30:15
Or to that, to that extent? 00:30:17
You know, in one hand it's very unfortunate that we have to have you in our community, but that the other in the other hand it's 00:30:20
very fortunate that we do have you. 00:30:23
Because you guys do provide a lot of services that. 00:30:27
Are are definitely needed so. 00:30:30
Big shout out to you guys and thank you for all you do. 00:30:32
Questions, Commissioners, comments. Anything else, Mr. Chair, please? 00:30:35
What I would like to see, and I mean I don't speak for the whole Commission, but. 00:30:40
Before before. 00:30:43
January. 00:30:46
Maybe you guys could come back before the Commission and I would love to sponsor and do a resolution. 00:30:47
Showing Burlington County support for you guys. That way you can take it up to the Roundhouse. 00:30:52
And let let them know that the counties do support you and what you do. 00:30:56
So I would love to sponsor you guys and have you come back before and? 00:31:00
And do a resolution to where we do support you guys. 00:31:03
Mr. Chairman, Commissioner, thank you so much for that. We would greatly appreciate it and yes, we're here to serve this 00:31:06
community, we're very passionate about it. 00:31:09
So do a really big thing now and I want it because of the movie that came out. But we also, when we do have our domestic violence 00:31:16
victims, we assess for trafficking, which we see a lot of unfortunately. 00:31:22
And October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. We really need to get that purple out there. During that time, we need to let 00:31:29
our community know that we're there for them and it's OK to step up and come out and they'll be. We need to make them feel safe. 00:31:36
And Sexual awareness Month is April. We have our chill colors. We need to really get out there, start decorating and start. 00:31:44
Letting the community know we need to start talking about it instead of just. 00:31:51
Keeping it behind closed doors, so we want them to know there's a safe place to go. 00:31:55
Thank you. 00:32:01
Anything else, Commissioners? 00:32:02
OK. And this is there anything else from you that you need to add to this? Mr. Chairman? Commissioners, I just wanted to make 00:32:05
note, upon full execution of this agreement from DFA, we will have an MO U established between the County and Valencia Shelter 00:32:12
Services just so we can identify how the funds are going to be controlled and we can establish a a payment schedule. 00:32:18
And that'll be discussed with legal at the appropriate time. 00:32:26
Thank you. 00:32:29
Anything else, Commissioners? 00:32:31

Approval of a memorandum of Understanding with County of Cibola for the purpose of providing housing and care for animals 00:34:18
originating from the jurisdiction of the County and. 00:34:23
Just we have you somewhere. Yes, Chairman and commissioners, this is an MOU between Valencia County and Cibola County, our 00:34:28
neighbors to the West. 00:34:32
It's the same MO U that we basically used for Isleta Blend. 00:34:38
All of the municipalities that utilize our facility, they are our partners. They help us out in the Highland Meadows area. We help 00:34:43
them in the Laguna, Laguna Pueblo area. 00:34:47
It's basically allowing them to bring up to five animals a month to our facility if they need space or or somewhere to house them. 00:34:53
Like I said it, it's basically to allow us both to help each other out. 00:35:00
In the outer reaches of our community and I I recommend approval. 00:35:08
OK. Any questions of Mr. Weston? 00:35:15
Is your zone as a recommendation. 00:35:20
Motion to Approve. 00:35:23
You have a motion and 2nd for approval. Any discussion on the motion of the 2nd? 00:35:24

Thank you. 00:35:38
OK, item sixteen approval of resolution supporting the right of county citizens to participate in the referendum process. 00:35:50

Came to me with the indication that other counties have approved that of approved the similar resolution. 00:36:01
And they are just looking for continued support from from county. So this is before us for consideration. 00:36:09
Any questions on the resolution? 00:36:15
There being none, is there a recommendation? 00:36:20
Mr. Chair like to make a motion to approve. 00:36:22
I'll second any discussion on the motion and 2nd. 00:36:24

Mr. Chairman, Commissioners, this resolution is. 00:36:34
2023, yes. 00:36:38
50. 00:36:39
58. 00:36:41
Hey item Seventeen Approval of resolution providing for the increased hiring pay rates for deputies with experience as a certified 00:36:59
law enforcement officer. 00:37:03
I'm not sure if Noah, go ahead. 00:37:07
Chairman, Commissioners, thank you guys for your time. 00:37:09
This resolution would allow us to hire lateral law enforcement officers that are already certified that have experience at a 00:37:12
higher pay rate than our normal starting rate. 00:37:16
You know, one of our issues is being recruitment and trying to get people apply. We have not had a lot of very few lateral 00:37:23
officers apply. 00:37:27
And right now we have a very, very young department. We have guys that have two years experience that are training, guys that just 00:37:32
get hired. 00:37:35
So we we're short a lot of experience in our department right now. 00:37:40
Trying to do something to recruit people. 00:37:43
To come to our department that have some experience. 00:37:46
And this is part of that program. 00:37:49
It would allow us to hire them at a pay rate which is in compliance with what our Union gives people on their. 00:37:52
Longevity raises, so it's not going to. 00:37:58
Give them more money than somebody already works here. 00:38:01
And it can only go up to 10 years. 00:38:04
Again, this is just to try and recruit more people, to recruit more certified officers and more experienced officers into the 00:38:07
county. 00:38:10
And. 00:38:14
Stand for any questions and I would recommend this get approved. 00:38:15
Mr. Chair, Mr. Chairman, I'm in full support of this. I think it's a. 00:38:19
It's the times we live in now and I think it helped us get a little bit. 00:38:23
More fully staffed over there and I think it's a great idea and I think. 00:38:27
We're a little bit behind by not doing this sooner, but I think it's a good idea. It's very common practice across the country. 00:38:31
Thank you Danny for sharing that. 00:38:37
Any questions, Commissioners Chair, please. 00:38:39
Danny, yes, Sir. 00:38:43
Have we talked to Loretta about how this will affect our budget and? 00:38:46
Do we have that money accounted for? 00:38:50
Yes, Sir, we'll be fine. 00:38:51
Any other questions? 00:38:54
There's there's none as a recommendation. 00:38:57
Mr. Chair, I'd like to make a motion to approve. 00:38:59
Have a motion for approval. Is there a second? 00:39:02
