At the second meeting of the newly appointed Phelps County Emergency Services Board on Tuesday, members reported on research tasks and took action on some organizational issues.

 

Board Chairman J. Kent Robinson presented two draft resolutions for the board’s consideration: Resolution No. 1 concerned the board’s operating and management rules and regulations; Resolution No. 2 confirmed the board’s commitment to open government and establishing policies that comply with the Missouri Sunshine Law.

 

Both resolutions were essentially commitments to operate the Emergency Services Board according to Missouri statutes.

 

Robinson requested the members review the resolutions and prepare to take action on them at the board’s next meeting at 6 p.m. June 1 in the training room of the Rolla Police Department.

 

“Whatever we do has to be transparent to the public,” said J. Kent Robinson, referring to Sunshine Law provisions.

Another action taken by board members was the appointment of members to the Budget Committee, which will review present county and Central Communications Center budgets and be prepared to draft one overall budget for next year.

 

Members appointed to the Budget Committee include Central Communications Center Director Paula Volkmer and three board members: Secretary Paul Rueff, Steve Zap and Byrne.
