REPORT: Assistant County Attorney Gerald Sanchez read the foregoing proposed resolution into the record. Commissioner Heyman responded to Commissioner Sorenson’s question regarding numbers in this resolution. Following discussion regarding the amount of grants applied for in the past year, the possibility of a strong mayor form of government and its effect on the issue at hand, not changing the existing resolution until after the elections were held, and the intent of the foregoing proposed resolution, the Committee proceeded to vote on the foregoing proposed resolution. In response to Commissioner Moss’s question regarding whether the Board could amend its procedures if there was a change in the government structure, Assistant County Attorney Gerald Sanchez said “Yes.” In response to Commissioner Barreiro’s question regarding whether this could be done even on procedures regarding the authorization to apply for grants, Mr. Sanchez noted he would need to check with the County Attorney, but he believed so. Mr. Sanchez responded with a “Yes” to Commissioner Sosa’s question regarding whether a budget could be amended in the middle of the year.
