Comprehensive Plan: Administrator Parrott reminded the Board of the second Comprehensive Public Meeting on April 21, 2022.
ARP Update: Administrator Parrott stated that she had been working with Diane Cox of the COG. ARP monies can be used as revenue replacement. She stated that a local government may expend ARP funds on a broad range of general government services under the Revenue Replacement allowable use category. There are two ways to proceed under this category; a unit may either elect to take the $10 million Standard Allowance or it may calculate actual revenue loss according to US Treasury’s formula. The Standard Allowance allows a local government to expend up to $10 million of its funds in the Revenue Replacement category without having to demonstrate any actual lost revenue. Commissioner Ricky Sneed made a motion that the Town declare the ARP funding, the total amount, to be classified as Revenue Replacement funds, and to amend the ARP budget ordinance to reflect this change. Commissioner Carl Roberts seconded the motion. The motion carried unanimously.

Commissioner Carl Roberts made a motion to increase the amount to $60 per cleaning seasonally April through October, and to include back pay of $80 for the previous month. Commissioner Sneed seconded the motion. The motion carried unanimously.
