I ALSO WANT TO THANK THE TEXAS ARMY NATIONAL GUARD, THE AIR NATIONAL GUARD AND TEXAS HEALTH DOCS. THESE TEAMS HAVE COME OUT TO OUR COUNTY AND SUPPORTED EITHER OUR LOCAL PROVIDERS OR MYSELF TO GET PEOPLE VACCINATED HERE IN CALDWELL COUNTY.

I'LL ALSO WANT TO THANK LOCKHART ISD FOR THE USE OF ADAM'S GYM, WHICH HAS BEEN A BIG HELP TO US, AND WE PUT A LOT OF PEOPLE THROUGH THERE TO GET VACCINATED.

ALSO WANT TO THANK THE WHOLE COMMUNITY CENTER, PRAIRIE LEE COMMUNITY CENTER AND THE CITY OF LULING FOR THE USE OF THE LULING CIVIC CENTER.

I DO HAVE A TEST SITE STILL GOING.

I JUST HAD WELL PUT IN A REQUISITION TO EXTEND IT TILL THE END OF APRIL.

AND IF I NEED TO EXTEND IT, I'LL EXTENDED FURTHER INTO THE INTO THE SUMMER.

THAT IS A SITE THAT'S GOING TO BE THERE.

I'M LOOKING AT ALSO PUTTING A COVID-19 TEST SITE PROVIDED BY CURATIVE IN LULING, TEXAS, THAT WILL BE MANNED SEVEN DAYS A WEEK.

AND WE'RE TRYING TO GET THAT DONE AT THE LULING CIVIC CENTER.

I ALSO HAVE NEWS THAT WE WILL BE BRINGING CURATIVE, WHICH IS A COMMERCIAL VENDOR, TO

[00:10:03]

START VACCINATING CALDWELL COUNTY CITIZENS OR ANY CITIZEN IN OUR SURROUNDING COUNTIES.

HERE WE'RE LOOKING AT A TARGET DATE OF APRIL THE 29TH.

SO WE WILL HAVE A COMMERCIAL VENDOR THAT WILL BE DOING THE INOCULATIONS TO ANYBODY WHO WANTS TO GET THE VACCINE.

THAT CONCLUDES MY REPORT FOR COVID.

IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS ABOUT COVID-19, JUST GIVE ME A CALL AT MY OFFICE AND WE'LL TRY TO GET ANYBODY TAKEN CARE OF.

AND I WANTED TO ADD ONE THING, HECTOR, WITH WITH REGARD TO CURATIVE, THAT'S GOING TO BE FIFTEEN HUNDRED DOSES A WEEK THAT WE'RE DOING THROUGH CURATIVE.

AND SO ENCOURAGE EVERYONE TO GET THE WORD OUT, TO GET ON OUR COUNTY SIGN UP LIST.

AND THAT'S WHERE WE'LL BE PULLING FROM TO GET THOSE PEOPLE IN THE CURATIVE QUEUE AND EVERY OTHER QUEUE. I ALSO WANT TO TAKE A MOMENT TO THANK JUDGE BROWN FROM TRAVIS COUNTY FOR PUTTING TOGETHER THE COLLABORATIVE AT CODA.

WE HAVE SENT EVERY WEEK FOR THREE WEEKS.

WE SENT TWELVE TO FIFTEEN HUNDRED PEOPLE THERE, WHERE THIS COMING WEEK WILL BE THE LAST WEEK OF GIVING ALL THOSE PEOPLE DOSES THEIR SECOND DOSES AND THEN WE'LL START SENDING PEOPLE AGAIN TO CODA.

THAT FACILITY DOES FIFTEEN THOUSAND SHOTS A WEEK.

SO AND I WANT TO THANK SPECIAL THANKS TO ALL THE VOLUNTEERS THAT ARE OUT THERE.

THAT THING HAS BEEN STAFFED ALMOST COMPLETELY FROM THE BEGINNING BY VOLUNTEERS.

THERE ARE A COUPLE OF COMMERCIAL VENDORS NOW HELPING WITH THE CHECK IN.

BUT THE VACCINATORS CONTINUE TO BE VOLUNTEERS FROM ASCENCION AND ELSEWHERE, RETIRED NURSES. MY WIFE HAS BEEN OUT THERE SOME AND SO SPECIAL THANKS TO THOSE PEOPLE, BECAUSE THAT'S QUITE A GRIND TO GO OUT THERE FOR 12 HOURS A DAY, FOR THREE DAYS ON YOUR WEEKEND.

THAT'S A BIG SACRIFICE THEY'RE MAKING.

SO WANT TO TAKE TIME TO THANK THOSE FOLKS AS WELL.

THANK YOU. YOU BET, SHERIFF? FIRST OFF, I WANT TO APOLOGIZE, I'VE NOT BEEN HERE SINCE THE FIRST OF THE YEAR, I'VE BEEN A LITTLE BIT BUSY. I'M SURE THAT Y'ALL HAVE SEEN THAT.

AND I JUST WANTED TO LET Y'ALL KNOW A FEW THINGS AND PICK YOUR MIKE UP A LITTLE BIT, PLEASE.

CAN I CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW? YES. IT'S BEEN A VERY BUSY FEW MONTHS AT SHERIFF'S OFFICE.

ONE OF THE THINGS THAT I WANTED TO JUST KIND OF TOUCH ON, AS Y'ALL ARE ALREADY AWARE, WE HAD OUR JAIL INSPECTION.

THAT'S THE FIRST TIME WE'VE NOT EVEN HAD A TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE IN OUR JAIL FOR AS LONG AS I CAN REMEMBER. WE HAVE AN INCREDIBLE TEAM BACK THERE NOW.

NOT THAT WE DIDN'T BEFORE, BUT ONE OF THE THINGS THAT WAS ADDRESSED BY THE INSPECTOR AND I'M GOING TO PLANT A SEED NOW, THAT IS A 30 PLUS YEAR OLD FACILITY.

WE ARE OUR INSPECTOR SUGGESTED THAT IN THE NEXT EIGHT TO 12 YEARS, WE NEED TO REALLY CONSIDER BUILDING ONTO IT OR ADDING TO IT OR REPLACING IT OR WHATEVER.

I'M NOT ASKING FOR THAT IN THIS BUDGET.

I DON'T PLAN ON ASKING FOR IT IN THE NEXT SEVERAL BUDGETS.

HOWEVER, AS A COMMISSIONERS COURT, AS A COUNTY GOVERNMENT, WE NEED TO START GEARING TOWARDS THAT IN THE NEXT TEN, TEN TO 12 YEARS.

OK. YOU WERE THERE FOR THAT, CORRECT? YES, SIR.

ALL RIGHT.

ALSO IN THE COMING BUDGET, I WAS APPROACHED THE OTHER DAY.

THE SHERIFFS COMBINED AUTO THEFT TASK FORCE, IS UP FOR A NEW GRANT.

WE HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH IT.

THEY COME AND HELP US OUT.

THEY DO INSPECTIONS. THEY HELP US WITH EVERYTHING ELSE.

BUT THEY'VE APPROACHED ME WANTING TO KNOW IF THEY WANTED TO INCLUDE A NEW DETECTIVE FROM CALDWELL COUNTY ON THERE.

AND I HAVE TOLD THEM YES.

SO THAT MAY BE SOMETHING, I BELIEVE THAT THEY REACHED OUT TO BARBARA AND MYRA THE OTHER DAY IN REFERENCE TO IT.

I JUST WANT Y'ALL TO BE AWARE OF IT AS WELL.

ALL RIGHT.

ALL RIGHT. THANK YOU. ANY OTHER STAFF ANNOUNCEMENTS? OK, COMMISSIONERS, SORRY ABOUT THAT.

NO ANNOUNCEMENTS FROM ME JUDGE.

COMMISSIONER SHELTON.

I'M GOOD.

THANK YOU.

COMMISSIONER. THERIOT.YES, I HAVE A FEW ITEMS HERE.

LIKE THE NEW POCO LOCO STORE OVER THERE AND YOU KNOW, THE MAIN ROAD, 1854 IS COME STRAIGHT INTO THERE.

AND I'VE BEEN POINTED OUT BY SEVERAL CITIZENS THAT IT'S GOING TO BE PROBABLY AN ACCIDENT THERE. AND I SO I WOULD JUST NEED TO NOT I WON'T JUST GO AHEAD AND TALK TO THE OWNERS AND SEE IF I CAN GET THEM TO VOLUNTARILY TAKE A LOOK AT IT AND SEE IF WE CAN GET.

I DON'T BECAUSE I DON'T WANT ANY CITIZENS OR ANYBODY ELSE'S CITIZEN TO GET KILLED AT THAT

[00:15:03]

INTERSECTION IS VERY DANGEROUS.

I'VE BEEN OUT THERE A COUPLE OF TIMES AND ALSO GETTING A LOT OF COMPLAINTS ABOUT LOUD MUSIC. AND SINCE THE SHERIFF IS HERE, YOU KNOW, I'LL TALK TO HIM LATER ABOUT IT WHEN THE COURT IS OVER. BUT I MEAN, IT'S A LOT GOING ON OUT THERE IN THE COUNTY.

AND IT'S A LOT OF IT IS NOT GOOD.

OK, THANK YOU, COMMISSIONER.

[Citizens' Comments]

OK, I'M GOING TO MOVE TO CITIZENS COMMENTS, JUST REMIND EVERYBODY WE HAVE FOUR MINUTES PER PERSON AND THE COMMISSIONERS WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ENGAGE WITH YOU DURING YOUR COMMENTS, BUT WE ARE VERY INTERESTED IN WHAT YOU HAVE TO SAY.

SO WITH THAT, DO WE HAVE ANY CITIZENS COMMENTS? CHET MORNING, JUDGE.

MORNING. I'M HERE TO TALK TO Y'ALL ABOUT SUBDIVISIONS, BUT DON'T WORRY, I'M NOT GOING TO LECTURE YOU ON THE QUALITY OF SUBDIVISIONS.

THAT'S A LOST CAUSE, HOPEFULLY.

HOWEVER, WE CAN STILL AGREE AND TAKE CARE OF SOME BASIC, OBVIOUS SAFETY ISSUES.

SPECIFICALLY, I'M TALKING ABOUT THE ITEM 27 THESE ARE 28 PENCIL TRACKS THAT ARE NOT GOING TO MAKE TAYLORSVILLE ROAD SAFER OR BETTER, ESPECIALLY AT THE CREST OF THE BLIND HILL.

THIS HAS BEEN A DANGEROUS SITUATION FOR AS LONG AS CARS HAVE BEEN TRAVELING THIS ONE AND A HALF LANE ROAD. THERE HAVE BEEN MANY ACCIDENTS AND NEAR MISSES AT THIS BLIND SPOT OVER THE YEARS. THERE ARE SEVERAL SOLUTIONS TO THIS PROBLEM, BUT THE MOST REASONABLE FOR EVERYONE IS FOR THE DEVELOPER TO COMBINE THE SIX LOTS AT THE CREST OF THE APEX OF THIS HILL INTO TWO UNDIVIDABLE LOTS WITH THEIR DRIVEWAYS DEEDED TO EXIST AT THE CREST OF THIS HILL. THIS WOULD MEAN 24 LOTS VERSUS 28, BUT PROVIDE A LITTLE BIT OF SAFETY FOR NEW AND THE UNKNOWING EXISTING NEIGHBORS.

DON'T TAKE MY WORD FOR IT.

CONTACT THE SHERIFF'S OFFICE FOR ACCIDENTS HERE, NEAR MISSES.

ALSO THE LONG TERM RESIDENTS ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE ROAD THAT HAVE BEEN THERE FOR FOREVER AND GET THEIR INPUT AS TO HOW MANY ACCIDENTS AND HIT AND RUN FENCE BREAKS ARE THERE. EVEN IF YOU GO OUT THERE TODAY ON THE PROPOSED SUBDIVISION SIDE, THE GAME FENCE IS BROKEN DOWN JUST RIGHT OVER THE APEX OF THAT HILL.

THIS HAS BEEN GOING ON AND AS THERE'S MORE PEOPLE MOVING INTO THAT AREA, IT'S GETTING MORE DANGEROUS. LASTLY, PLEASE HAVE THE COMMISSIONER AND OR THE PLANNING AND ZONING PERSON OR THE CODE ENFORCEMENT, WHATEVER, DRIVE THIS ROAD BOTH WAYS DURING THE DAY.

AT NIGHT IT'S ACTUALLY A LITTLE SAFER.

YOU CAN SEE HEADLIGHTS COMING UP ON THE BLIND SPOT.

BEFORE YOU APPROVE THIS PLAT IN ITS PRESENT FORM.

IF YOU DO SO, IT'LL BE QUITE OBVIOUS WHAT I'M SPEAKING ABOUT.

SINCE I'M UP HERE AND WE'RE BACK IN SESSION HERE, I GUESS I'M GOING TO TAKE THIS OPPORTUNITY TO ALSO SAY THE COUNTY WIDE REQUIREMENT OF I THINK IT'S LIKE A 10 TO 12 FOOT TINHORN DRIVEWAY TO PIPE TO PUT IN IS TOTALLY INADEQUATE.

IT SHOULD BE AT LEAST 15 FEET WITH A 45 ON EACH SIDE.

OTHERWISE, THE FEW FUNCTIONING FEEL FREE TO CONTACT ME IF YOU WANT TO SEE PLENTY OF EXAMPLES OF THIS THROUGHOUT THE COUNTY FROM MOWERS AND PEOPLE DRIVING IN AND CRUNCHING THEM, CRUNCHING THEM DOWN.

ALSO, I'D REITERATE WHAT I THOUGHT I HEARD JOE SAYING SOMETHING ABOUT NOISE IN THE COUNTY. UNBELIEVABLE.

LOUD MUSIC PLAYING THROUGH ALL HOURS OF THE NIGHT WAY TOO OFTEN.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME.

THANK YOU, SIR.

R SCOTT THANK YOU VERY MUCH. MY NAME IS RANDALL SCOTT I'M AN ATTORNEY.

I DO A LOT OF LOCAL GOVERNMENT TYPE PRESENTATIONS, AND I'VE BEEN HIRED BY ADAM AND WAYNE INFRASTRUCTURE PROJECTS THAT WERE AWARDED AT THE LAST COMMISSIONER'S MEETING.

FIRST AND FOREMOST, I THINK YOU WERE ALL AWARE OF THE SITUATION, ADAM.

YOU SPOKE TO HIM AT THE LAST COMMISSION MEETING WAS HELD LAST MONTH.

I KNOW Y'ALL HAD AN OPPORTUNITY TO ENGAGE HIM AND WE APPRECIATE THAT.

WE APPRECIATE THE USE OF THIS COURTROOM HERE TODAY AS WELL.

AGAIN, TO BRING THIS ISSUE TO YOUR ATTENTION.

FUNDAMENTALLY, ADAM AND HIS FATHER, WAYNE, MY CLIENTS ARE FUNDAMENTALLY UPSET AND THEY'RE PERPLEXED AND THEY REALLY ARE BESIDE THEMSELVES AT THE WAY THEY'VE BEEN TREATED BY THE COUNTY. THEY RECEIVED NOTIFICATION FROM THE PURCHASING AGENT, MRS.

[00:20:04]

BLAKE, THAT OUTLINED IN AN EMAIL TO THEM VARIOUS REASONS FOR WHY THEIR BID, EVEN THOUGH THEY WERE THE LOWEST, WAS NOT SELECTED BECAUSE THEY WERE NOT THE BEST.

FOR EACH OF THOSE REASONS, ADAM OR HIS FATHER, WAYNE, WERE NOT SELECTED OR CONTACTED BY THE COUNTY OR BY ANYONE PURPORTING TO BE BY THE COUNTY OR ANY FIRM REPRESENTING TO BE ON BEHALF OF THE COUNTY.

MRS. BLAKE INDICATED THAT THAT MY CLIENT, 304 CONSTRUCTION HAD CASH FLOW ISSUES OF ONE HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS.

WE HAVE SUPPLIED DOCUMENTATION FOR YOU TODAY IN THAT BINDER INDICATING THAT THERE ARE NO CASH FLOW ISSUES.

AND IN FACT, MY CLIENTS HAVE BANK ACCOUNTS WITH A SUBSTANTIAL SUM OF MONEY IN THEM THAT THEY ARE WILLING TO UTILIZE FOR THE SUCCESSFUL COMPLETION OF THIS PROJECT.

ADDITIONALLY, THERE WERE CONCERNS ADDRESSED BY MRS. BLAKE INDICATING THAT THERE WERE EQUIPMENT ISSUES.

WE HAVE ATTACHED AS EXHIBIT SEVEN, A LIST OF ALL THE EQUIPMENT THAT MY CLIENT HAS AVAILABLE TO THEM AND ARE WILLING TO UTILIZE TOWARDS THIS PROJECT.

THERE ARE NO MAJOR PROJECTS OF THIS YEAR AND IN FACT, MY CLIENTS HAVE SET ASIDE THEIR CALENDAR FOR THE COMPLETION OF THIS PROJECT.

THIRD, MS. BLAKE ALSO INDICATED THAT THERE WERE ISSUES REGARDING THE NUMBER OF YEARS THAT MY CLIENT HAS BEEN IN BUSINESS.

ADAM HAS TEN TO FIFTEEN YEARS OF CONSTRUCTION EXPERIENCE AS WELL AS HIS FATHER HAS OVER FORTY YEARS OF CONSTRUCTION EXPERIENCE, TOGETHER.

THAT'S A COMBINED EXPERIENCE OF FIFTY FIVE YEARS OF CONSTRUCTION EXPERIENCE, WHICH THIS COUNTY CAN UTILIZE TO ITS BENEFIT IN ORDER TO MAKE THIS A SUCCESSFUL PROJECT.

SETTING ASIDE THE FACT FOR A MOMENT THAT MY CLIENTS ARE UPSET AND THEY'VE ASKED FOR ME TO CALL AND TALK WITH YOU HERE TODAY, FUNDAMENTALLY, THE BOTTOM LINE REMAINS IS THAT THIS HONORABLE COMMISSIONER'S COURT IS REQUIRED TO SELECT THE LOWEST AND THE BEST BID.

WE CAN ALL AGREE THAT FOR 304, CONSTRUCTION SUBMITTED THE LOWEST BID WITH THE ISSUE ON THE TABLE IS HERE TODAY IS WHETHER OR NOT THEY'RE THE BEST BID.

THEREFORE, I HAVE COMPLETED AND SENT YOU THAT PACKET AND BINDER OF INFORMATION THAT I BELIEVE SHOWS IF YOU COMPARE EVERY CATEGORY TO WJC, THE COMPANY THAT WAS AWARDED THE BID, YOU WILL FIND THAT THEY BEAT THEM.

YOU HAVE 30 SECONDS. ON EVERY POINT.

THIS IS AN IMPORTANT ISSUE BESIDES MY CLIENT'S FRUSTRATION, BECAUSE THE TAXPAYERS OF THIS COUNTY WILL BE PAYING AN ADDITIONAL SIXTY THOUSAND DOLLARS THAT THEY SHOULD NOT HAVE TO.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME AND THANK YOU FOR THE USE OF THIS HONORABLE COURT HERE TODAY.

THANK YOU, SIR.

NO MORE CITIZENS COMMENTS.

OK, THANK YOU.

OK, THEN WE WILL MOVE TO CONSENT AGENDA, COMMISSIONERS ANY QUESTIONS ON CONSENT?

[CONSENT AGENDA]

IF NOT, I'D LOOK FOR A MOTION TO APPROVE.

I'LL MAKE A MOTION WE APPROVE THE CONSENT AGENDA.

WE HAVE A MOTION TO APPROVE CONSENT AGENDA.

DO WE HAVE SECOND? SECOND, WE HAVE A MOTION AND A SECOND.

ALL IN FAVOR SAY AYE.

AYE. OPPOSE NONE, MOTION CARRIES.

[12. Discussion/Action regarding the burn ban. Speaker: Judge Haden/ Hector Rangel; Backup: 3; Cost: None]

ITEM TWELVE DISCUSSION ACTION REGARDING BURN BAN, HECTOR.

MORNING AGAIN, JUDGE, COMMISSIONERS.

I DON'T KNOW IF YOU SAW DURING OVER THE WEEKEND, BASTROP HAD A LARGE FIRE.

THEY HAD APPROXIMATELY STARTED OUT AS 100 ACRES, BUT IT ENDED UP BEING 35 ACRES.

IT WAS CAUSED BY A CAMPFIRE.

RIGHT NOW, OUR CALDWELL COUNTY NUMBERS ARE REAL, ARE AS FOLLOWS.

MINIMUM IS 288, MAX IS 573 WITH AN AVERAGE OF FOUR TWENTY FIVE WITH A CHANGE OF SEVEN.

RIGHT NOW, WE'RE AT A MODERATE TO SEVERE DROUGHT IN CALDWELL COUNTY AND THAT DROUGHT TENDS TO BE HEAVIER FROM THE EAST TO THE SOUTH OF CALDWELL COUNTY.

SO ANYTHING EAST OF 183 AND SOUTH DOWN TOWARD LULING FIRE DANGER'S A LITTLE HIGHER.

OUR HUMIDITY LEVELS FOR THIS WEEK ARE GOING TO BE VERY LOW, GOING TO BE PROBABLY IN THE 20S, WHICH IS NOT GOOD FOR FIREFIGHTING, MAKES THE FIRES BURN A LITTLE FASTER.

I WAS HOPING FOR SOME RAIN LAST NIGHT, BUT WE DIDN'T GET IT.

SO I FEEL FOR THE FARMERS THAT NEED THE RAIN REAL BAD RIGHT NOW, BUT IT DOESN'T LOOK LIKE WE'RE GOING TO HAVE ANY. SO I AM ASKING COMMISSIONERS COURT TO INSTILL THE BURN BAN.

ALL THE FIRE CHIEFS AND ALL THE VOLUNTEER FIREFIGHTERS CHIEFS HERE IN THE COUNTY HAVE SAID THAT THAT'S A GOOD PLAN SO WE CAN KEEP THE FIRE DANGER OUT.

SO I'M REQUESTING THAT WE PUT THE BURN BAN BACK ON TILL NEXT COMMISSIONERS COURT.

[00:25:02]

OK.

I WILL MAKE THE MOTION THAT WE PUT THE BURN BAN ON.

SORRY, I AM DONNY GRAHAM, I'M WITH CALDWELL TRAVIS SOLAR WATER CONSERVATION DISTRICT.

WITH ME THIS MORNING IS MARLA LYNN HEGER.

WHO IS OUR PUBLIC OUTREACH COORDINATOR.

AND SHE'D LIKE TO TALK A LITTLE BIT, PLEASE.

OK, THAT'D BE FINE.

THAT'S PERFECT. GREAT.

WELL, THANK YOU, JUDGE HADEN, COMMISSIONERS, FOR THE TIME TODAY.

MY NAME IS MARLA HEGER.

AS MR. GRAHAM, WHO IS OUR BOARD DIRECTOR, MENTIONED, WE'RE WITH THE CALDWELL TRAVIS SOLAR AND WATER CONSERVATION DISTRICT.

AND WE THANK YOU FOR SIGNING THE PROCLAMATION TODAY, BECAUSE IT REALLY DOES GIVE VISIBILITY TO OUR MISSION OF PRESERVING THE NEED OF OUR SOIL, WATER AND OTHER NATURAL RESOURCES. THE CONSERVATION DISTRICT ACTUALLY WORKS WITH A NUMBER OF ORGANIZATIONS, INCLUDING USD, USDA NATURAL RESOURCE CONSERVATION DISTRICT, TO BRING A UNITED FRONT TO COMBAT SOIL AND WATER.

EXCUSE ME, SOIL AND WATER ISSUES.

OUR DISTRICT IS LOCALLY LED, WE'RE ACTUALLY RUN BY A GROUP OF FIVE CITIZENS WHO ARE ELECTED BY FELLOW LANDOWNERS.

THEY'RE ALL VOLUNTEER DIRECTORS.

THE BOARD ADMINISTERS PROGRAMS PROVIDING TECHNICAL AND FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE TO LANDOWNERS IN THE DISTRICT. ALL OUR PROGRAMS ARE VOLUNTARY.

THERE'S NEVER REQUIREMENT TO SEEK ASSISTANCE IN MANAGING NATURAL RESOURCES.

BUT WE CERTAINLY ARE HERE TO HELP.

MOST OF CALDWELL COUNTY FALLS WITHIN THE PLUM CREEK WATERSHED, A ROUGHLY 400 SQUARE MILE AREA THAT DRAINS TO PLUM CREEK, WHICH IN TURN FLOWS TO THE SAN MARCOS RIVER.

A BRIEF EXAMPLE OF A PROGRAM DELIVERED BY THE DISTRICT IS A WATER QUALITY MANAGEMENT PLAN, ALSO KNOWN AS A WQMP FOR SHORT.

PUMP CREEK WAS RECOGNIZED SOME YEARS AGO AS AN IMPAIRED WATERWAY DUE TO THE LEVEL OF POLLUTANTS. THE EPA PROVIDES A GRANT THROUGH THE CLEAN WATER ACT, WHICH IS ADMINISTERED BY OUR TEXAS STATE SOIL AND WATER CONSERVATION BOARD.

SO LAND FALLING WITHIN THAT 400 SQUARE MILES IN CALDWELL COUNTY QUALIFIES FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF A WQMP, WHICH IS THE TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE IN PLANNING THE BEST MANAGEMENT PRACTICES FOR THE LAND, AND IMPROVING THE WATERS OF THE PLUM CREEK.

THAT'S WHAT IT'S ALL ABOUT. LANDOWNERS CAN ALSO APPLY FOR FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE ON A COST SHARING BASIS. WELL, BACK TO THE REASON WE'RE HERE TODAY.

EACH YEAR, THE STEWARDSHIP WEEK IS DEFINED BY OUR NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF CONSERVATION DISTRICTS. AND THIS YEAR THEY SELECTED THE THEME HEALTHY FOREST, EQUAL HEALTHY COMMUNITIES. WHILE WE MAY NOT CONSIDER CALDWELL COUNTY REALLY A FORESTED AREA, CERTAINLY IF YOU LOOK TO THE EAST, AND THE SOUTHEAST, YOU SEE A WOODED AREA.

BUT REGARDLESS OF WHETHER WE LIVE IN AN URBAN AREA ON RANGELAND, PASTURE CROPLAND, CERTAINLY WE CAN ALL UNDERSTAND THE IMPORTANCE OF OUR TREE RESOURCES FOR FUTURE GENERATIONS. THROUGHOUT STEWARDSHIP WEEK WE'LL BE SHARING EDUCATIONAL CONTENT ON SOCIAL MEDIA. WE JUST AWARDED OVER SEVEN HUNDRED DOLLARS IN PRIZE MONEY TO LOCAL STUDENTS FOR

[00:35:02]

THEIR POSTERS AND ESSAY SUPPORTING THE THEME OF HEALTHY FORESTS AND HEALTHY COMMUNITIES.

WE LOOK FORWARD TO RAMPING UP WITH MORE EDUCATIONAL ACTIVITIES AS OPPORTUNITIES TO MEET IN PERSON BECOME COMMONPLACE ONCE MORE.

AGAIN THANK YOU, JUDGE HADEN AND COMMISSIONERS FOR YOUR ONGOING SUPPORT OF THE CONSERVATION DISTRICT.

WE REALLY APPRECIATE IT.

AND COMMISSIONER, BEFORE WE GO UP HERE, TO GET OUR PHOTO TAKEN.

[23. Discussion/Action to review and approve the annual financial audit report for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2020. Speaker: Judge Haden/ Barbara Gonzales/ Debbie Fraser; Backup: 120]

ITEM 22, ITEM 23 DISCUSSION ACTION TO REVIEW AND APPROVE THE ANNUAL FINANCIAL AUDIT REPORT FOR FISCAL YEAR ENDING SEPTEMBER 30TH 2020.

AND WE HAVE DEBBIE FRASER HERE TO BRING US UP TO DATE.

JUDGE HADEN, I'D LIKE TO INTRODUCE, LIKE YOU SAID, DEBBIE FRASER.

WE'VE BEEN WORKING WITH ARMSTRONG FOR THE LAST COUPLE OF YEARS.

AND IT'S IT'S BEEN THIS IS EXCITING.

THIS IS THE EARLIEST THAT WE'VE ACTUALLY BEEN ABLE TO BRING THE AUDIT BEFORE YOU AND CELINA'S ALSO, SHE'S BEEN WORKING WITH US AS WELL, CELINA JONES.

AND SO I WAS REALLY EXCITED.

THIS IS THE FIRST YEAR, I BELIEVE THE FIRST YEAR THAT I CAME HERE A FEW YEARS AGO.

I WANT TO SAY WE HAD UP TO 50 PAGES OF AUDIT ADJUSTMENTS THIS YEAR.

IT'S EXCITING TO NOTE THAT WE ARE DOWN TO FOUR PAGES OF AUDIT ADJUSTMENTS.

I DO WANT TO THANK OUR STAFF AND EVERYBODY, ALL THE ELECTED OFFICIALS, ALL THE DEPARTMENT HEADS THAT WORK WITH US BECAUSE IT TAKES AN ENTIRE COUNTY TO HELP US PULL INFORMATION.

KAREN'S, CARRIE'S UPSTAIRS AND SHE COULDN'T MAKE IT DOWN.

SHE STILL KIND OF IN THE HEALING PROCESS OF SOME THINGS THAT SHE HAD TO GO THROUGH A COUPLE OF WEEKS AGO. BUT SHE HAS PULL A LOT OF INFORMATION FOR ACCOUNTS PAYABLE.

CAROLYN'S HERE, OUR ASSISTANT AUDITOR.

SHE HAS TO GO THROUGH A LOT OF PAYROLL INFORMATION.

OUR INTERNAL AUDITOR, JAN, PLAYS A BIG ROLE.

AND MAYRA AND OF COURSE, OUR OFFICE PLAYS A SIGNIFICANT ROLE IN WORKING WITH OUR EXTERNAL AUDITORS, AS WELL AS A LOT OF OTHER INDIVIDUALS.

I KNOW THAT WE SPEND A LOT OF TIME INTERVIEWING WITH EXTERNAL AUDITORS.

JUDGE HADEN, SOME OF THE AUDIT, THE GRANTS DEPARTMENT, OUR COUNTY TREASURER.

SO EVERY YEAR THEY'LL PICK DIFFERENT DEPARTMENTS OR DIFFERENT INDIVIDUALS THAT THEY HAVE TO INTERVIEW.

SO AT THIS POINT IN TIME, I'LL TURN IT OVER TO DEBBIE.

THANK YOU.

I THINK I CAN HEAR YOU OK.

CAN Y'ALL HEAR? SO.

THERE YOU GO. NOW WE CAN HEAR YOU, GREAT.

WELL, ONE THING BARBARA DIDN'T SAY IS, WELL, TWO THINGS.

I THINK WE DID OVER 50 JOURNAL ENTRIES LAST YEAR.

WE WERE DOWN TO 22 THIS YEAR.

AND IT'S NICE TO SEE THAT THEY'RE CONTINUALLY GOING, YOU KNOW, IN HALF.

SO WE APPRECIATE THAT.

AND ALTHOUGH WE REALLY DON'T LIKE TO SAY WE'RE INVASIVE, WE'RE PRETTY INVASIVE.

I THINK MOST OF THE DEPARTMENTS HERE, PURCHASING GRANTS, TREASURER, AUDITOR'S OFFICE PROBABLY ARE REALLY, REALLY HAPPY.

IF YOU SEE A MARGARITA MACHINE, IT USUALLY MEANS WE'VE GONE.

SO ANYWAY, WE REALLY APPRECIATE THEM AND ALL THE WORK THAT THEY DID FOR US WHILE WE WERE HERE AS WELL AS AFTER.

I MEAN, WE CONTINUE TO ASK QUESTIONS AND FOLLOW UP ON INFORMATION PROBABLY FOR A THREE

[00:45:04]

WEEK, FOUR WEEK PERIOD AFTER THAT.

AND THEN CELINA REALLY WORKED TO GET THIS REPORT OUT THIS YEAR.

SO I WAS VERY, VERY PLEASED.

ON PAGE ONE IS THE INDEPENDENT AUDITORS REPORT.

AND I KNOW YOU HAVE THE PHYSICAL COPY NOW AS WELL AS THE COPY YOU RECEIVED IN YOUR PACKET, BUT IT MAY BE EASIER TO FOLLOW ALONG WITH THE HARD COPY.

SO THE INDEPENDENT AUDITOR'S REPORT BASICALLY SAYS AFTER ADJUSTMENTS, YOUR FINANCIAL STATEMENTS ARE FAIRLY STATED AND MATERIALLY CORRECT.

AND THAT'S ON PAGE ONE.

IF YOU TURN TO, SORRY, PAGE 15 AND 16, THIS IS YOUR STATEMENT OF NET POSITION.

AND THE STATEMENT OF NET POSITION IS ON THE FULL ACCRUAL BASIS OF ACCOUNTING.

YOU ACTUALLY BUDGET ON A MODIFIED ACCRUAL BASIS OF ACCOUNTING.

SO ON THE FULL ACCRUAL BASIS, YOU'LL SEE FIXED ASSETS CAPITALIZED.

YOU'LL SEE ALL YOUR DEBT AND COMPENSATED ABSENCES OR VACATION PAYABLE AS WELL AS YOUR INSURANCE I'M SORRY, YOUR PENSION LIABILITIES.

AND YOU ACTUALLY THIS YEAR, I WANT TO POINT OUT THAT YOU HAD A NET PENSION ASSET.

AND THE GOOD THING ABOUT THIS IS WE AUDIT PROBABLY 40 COUNTIES AND CITIES AND THERE'S ONLY TWO OF THEM THIS YEAR THAT HAD A NET PENSION ASSET.

SO THAT MEANS THAT YOU HAVE MORE MONEY IN THE SYSTEM THAN YOUR LIABILITY AT THIS POINT.

SO THAT'S VERY POSITIVE.

THAT WAS AN ASSET THIS YEAR OF FIVE HUNDRED AND FORTY TWO THOUSAND FIFTY SIX.

IT'S MIDWAY DOWN THE PAGE ON PAGE 15.

SO YOUR TOTAL ASSETS AT THE END OF THE YEAR ON YOUR STATEMENT OF NET POSITION WERE FIFTY NINE POINT TWO MILLION AND THEN YOU HAD DEFERRED OUTFLOWS OF RESOURCES.

THESE RELAYED BASICALLY TO YOUR PENSION.

THEY'RE BASICALLY ASSETS WITHIN THE SYSTEM.

AND THEY AMOUNTED TO SIX HUNDRED AND ALMOST SIX HUNDRED AND SIXTY EIGHT THOUSAND DOLLARS . IF YOU GO TO PAGE 16, YOU HAVE TOTAL LIABILITIES AND AGAIN, THIS INCLUDES ALL OF YOUR DEBT WITHIN THE COUNTY.

AND THAT WAS TWENTY THREE POINT NINE MILLION, WHICH INCLUDED ABOUT 19 MILLION IN CURRENT AND LONG TERM DEBT.

YOUR NET POSITION WAS THIRTY FIVE POINT TWO MILLION UNRESTRICTED.

OF THAT WAS THIRTEEN AND A HALF MILLION, AS WELL AS THIRTEEN POINT ONE MILLION OF NET INVESTMENT AND CAPITAL ASSETS, WHICH BASICALLY IS YOUR FIXED ASSETS MINUS DEPRECIATION AND ANY OTHER DEBT RELATED TO THOSE ASSETS.

SO I'D LIKE YOU TO TURN TO PAGE 19 AND 20.

THIS IS THE BALANCE SHEET OF THE COUNTY AND THIS IS ON THE MODIFIED ACCRUAL BASIS.

SO YOU'RE NOT GOING TO SEE ANY DEBT, NO PENSION LIABILITIES AND NO CAPITAL ASSETS CAPITALIZED. SO AT YEAR END, YOU HAD THIRTY POINT EIGHT MILLION IN TOTAL ASSETS.

OF THAT, TWENTY FIVE POINT FOUR MILLION IS ACTUALLY CASH AND CASH EQUIVALENT.

THE GENERAL FUND HAD TWENTY ONE MILLION IN ASSETS AND CLOSE TO 17 MILLION IN CASH AND CASH EQUIVALENTS. NOW I'M GOING TO ASK YOU TO TURN ALL THE WAY BACK TO.

THE.

BUDGET TO ACTUAL, WHICH IS ON PAGE 15.

AND THIS IS FOR THE GENERAL FUND ONLY.

AND ON PAGE 51, THIS SHOWS ALL YOUR REVENUES, YOUR EXPENDITURES, AND IT ALSO IS BUDGET TO ACTUAL AND WE ALSO HAVE COMPARATIVE INFORMATION FROM 2019 IN THE LAST COLUMN.

SO THE BUDGETED AMOUNTS THAT YOU BUDGETED AT THE END OF THE YEAR FOR TOTAL REVENUES, WHICH IS THE SECOND COLUMN, WAS TWENTY FOUR AND A HALF MILLION I'M SORRY, TWENTY FOUR POINT TWO MILLION. AND YOU ACTUALLY BROUGHT IN REVENUES OF TWENTY THREE POINT SIX MILLION. IF YOU LOOK AT THE HIGHLIGHTS OVER THERE AND THE VARIANCES, THE POSITIVE VARIANCE WAS YOU BROUGHT IN OTHER TAXES, WHICH WAS PRIMARILY SALES TAX.

YOU WERE FOUR HUNDRED AND EIGHT THOUSAND OVER BUDGET THERE, WHICH IS A GOOD THING.

HOWEVER, YOU KIND OF YOUR PROPERTY TAX WAS TWO HUNDRED AND FIFTY EIGHT AND THEN YOUR FINES WERE ABOUT 300,000 LESS THAN BUDGETED.

COMPARED TO LAST YEAR, YOU BROUGHT IN ABOUT A HUNDRED THOUSAND MORE.

YOU HAD TWENTY THREE AND A HALF MILLION IN 2019 COMPARED TO TWENTY THREE POINT SIX

[00:50:07]

MILLION IN 2020.

IF YOU GO DOWN TO THE TOTAL EXPENDITURES YOU BUDGETED TO SPEND 20 MILLION TWO AND YOU ACTUALLY SPENT SEVENTEEN, ALMOST SEVENTEEN POINT NINE MILLION, WHICH WAS A POSITIVE VARIANCE OF TWO POINT THREE MILLION.

AND COMPARED TO LAST YEAR, YOU SPENT 17 MILLION, NINE THOUSAND.

IF YOU GO DOWN TO THE LAST THE THIRD ITEM FROM THE BOTTOM SECOND COLUMN, YOU'LL NOTICE THAT THE NET CHANGE IN FUND BALANCE THAT YOU BUDGETED WAS A POSITIVE ONE HUNDRED AND EIGHTY SIX THOUSAND FOUR HUNDRED NINETY FIVE THOUSAND.

IF YOU GO OVER ONE MORE COLUMN, YOU'LL SEE THAT YOU ACTUALLY ENDED WITH A POSITIVE NET CHANGE OF ONE POINT THREE MILLION.

SO THAT WAS A POSITIVE VARIANCE OF ONE POINT ONE MILLION.

YOUR FUND BALANCE AT THE END OF THE YEAR WAS 14 MILLION, 8 HUNDRED AND 15, 874.

AND OF THAT, FOURTEEN MILLION EIGHT HUNDRED TWENTY NINE THOUSAND REPRESENTS UNASSIGNED FUND BALANCE, WHICH IS AVAILABLE TO BE USED IN THE FOLLOWING YEAR.

AND I WANT TO POINT OUT THE GFOA RECOMMENDS THAT YOU HAVE THREE TO SIX MONTHS OF OPERATING EXPENDITURES AND YOU ACTUALLY HAVE APPROXIMATELY NINE MONTHS.

SO THAT'S A VERY GOOD HIGHLIGHT.

ON PAGE 52, THIS IS YOUR UNIT ROAD FUND, AND YOU ACTUALLY HAD BUDGETED TO BRING IN ONE MILLION, 70,000 AND YOU BROUGHT IN SEVEN HUNDRED AND FIFTY SIX THOUSAND FIVE HUNDRED AND EIGHTY ONE. YOU WERE A LITTLE SHORT IN THE LICENSES AND PERMITS AND THE INTERGOVERNMENTAL REVENUE, COMPARED TO LAST YEAR.

YOU WERE DOWN ALSO YOU BROUGHT IN ONE MILLION, ONE POINT TWO MILLION IN THE PRIOR YEAR.

SO A LOT OF THAT WAS DUE TO COVID AS WELL AS YOUR SALES TAX THAT YOU BROUGHT IN IN THE GENERAL FUND. THAT WAS PARTLY DUE TO COVID BECAUSE PEOPLE WERE ORDERING FROM WITHIN THE COUNTY.

THE PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION, TOTAL EXPENDITURES.

YOU BUDGETED ALMOST FIVE POINT FOUR MILLION YOU BROUGHT IN OR YOU SPENT FOUR POINT SEVEN MILLION, WHICH WAS ABOUT SIX HUNDRED AND SEVENTY EIGHT THOUSAND UNDER BUDGET AND ABOUT 500,000 MORE THAN YOU BROUGHT IN OR THEN YOU SPENT LAST YEAR.

IF WE GO DOWN TO THE NET CHANGE IN FUND BALANCE, YOU ACTUALLY BUDGETED A NEGATIVE FIVE HUNDRED AND ELEVEN THOUSAND EIGHT THIRTY SEVEN CHANGE IN FUND BALANCE AND YOU ACTUALLY ONLY HAD A DEFICIT OF ONE HUNDRED AND FORTY SIX THOUSAND ONE HUNDRED TWENTY TWO.

SO THAT WAS A POSITIVE VARIANCE OF THREE HUNDRED AND SIXTY FIVE THOUSAND.

ON PAGE 54.

THIS RELATES TO YOUR TCDRS OR YOUR TEXAS COUNTY AND DISTRICT RETIREMENT SYSTEM.

WE DO NOT DO THE AUDIT OF THESE NUMBERS THERE.

THE ENTIRE SYSTEM IS AUDITED BY MILLIMAN AND THEY PUT OUT A REPORT ANNUALLY, WHICH ALSO INCLUDES A REPORT ON YOUR ACTUARIAL ASSUMPTIONS.

BUT THE HIGHLIGHT HERE, WHICH I ALREADY TOLD YOU, YOU ENDED THE YEAR WITH A FIVE HUNDRED AND FORTY TWO THOUSAND FIFTY SIX DOLLAR NET ASSET IN PENSION LIABILITY COMPARED TO AN EIGHT HUNDRED AND SIX THOUSAND LOSS OR NOT LOSS, BUT NET LIABILITY, THAT PENSION LIABILITY IN THE PRIOR YEAR.

SO YOU HAD AT ONE POINT THREE MILLION DOLLAR SWING.

YOU MIGHT ASK, WHY DID WE HAVE THAT? WELL, THE ANSWER IS YOUR NET INVESTMENT INCOME, WHICH IS MIDWAY UP THE PAGE.

LAST YEAR YOU HAD A POSITIVE, THIS YEAR YOU HAVE A POSITIVE THREE POINT TWO MILLION COMPARED TO A LOSS OF THREE HUNDRED AND.

67,000 LAST YEAR.

PART OF THAT LOSS WAS DUE TO JUST THE DAY THAT WHICH WAS DECEMBER 31, 2018, THAT THE START STOCK MARKET ENDED COMPARED TO DECEMBER 31ST, 2019, THIS YEAR.

BUT THE OTHER, THEY SOLD SOME OF THEIR INVESTMENT PORTFOLIO AND CHANGED THE MIX TO MAKE IT A LITTLE STRONGER.

SO THAT WAS WHAT OCCURRED THAT DROVE THAT INVESTMENT EARNINGS ISSUE.

I ACTUALLY ON PAGE 80, YOU DID HAVE A FEDERAL UNIFORM GUIDANCE, SINGLE AUDIT THIS YEAR, WHICH MEANS THAT YOU SPENT OVER 750,000 IN FEDERAL FUNDS.

IT'S NOT WHAT YOU RECEIVED, BUT IT'S WHAT YOU SPENT.

AND SO THAT'S A VERY IMPORTANT DISTINCTION.

SO ON PAGE 80, THIS IS THE REPORT ON INTERNAL CONTROL OVER FINANCIAL REPORTING AND COMPLIANCE AND OTHER MATTERS BASED ON AUDIT OF FINANCIAL STATEMENTS PERFORMED IN

[00:55:03]

ACCORDANCE WITH GOVERNMENTAL ACCOUNTING STANDARDS.

BECAUSE YOU DID RECEIVE THESE FUNDS, WE ACTUALLY ISSUE A GAS, WHAT WE CALL A GAS REPORT.

AND WE DID HAVE A COUPLE COMMENTS IN THIS AREA.

YOU HAD A COUPLE OF DEFICIENCIES THAT WERE CONSIDERED JUST INTERNAL BASIC INTERNAL CONTROL DEFICIENCIES, AS WELL AS SIGNIFICANT DEFICIENCIES.

AND THOSE BEGIN ON PAGE 82.

YOU WOULDN'T HAVE SEEN THIS IN THE REPORT LAST YEAR BECAUSE YOU DID NOT HAVE A SINGLE AUDIT. SO THAT'S WHAT DROVE IT BEING IN THE REPORT THIS YEAR, OTHER THAN JUST OUR LETTER.

SO WE STILL HAVE THE CONTINUING MATERIAL WEAKNESS OF CASH AND CASH EQUIVALENTS.

AND THIS HAS TO DO WITH YOUR RECONCILIATION OF BANK STATEMENTS.

THEY WERE RECONCILED UP THROUGH SEPTEMBER.

YOU HIRED AN OUTSIDE PERSON TO COME IN AND RECONCILE THOSE AND THEY WERE PERFORMED ACCURATELY. CURRENTLY, WHEN I WAS HERE LAST WEEK, I THINK WE ONLY HAD THROUGH NOVEMBER OF 2020. THERE'S RECONCILED.

WE'RE RECONCILING 2020.

IT'S VERY IMPORTANT THAT WE BRING THESE UP TO DATE BECAUSE THERE'S A MYRIAD OF THINGS THAT OCCURRED COULD OCCUR BECAUSE THEY'RE NOT RECONCILED.

AND I DID GO OVER THOSE WITH JUDGE SNYDER AND JUDGE HADEN LAST WEEK.

SO I WON'T BORE YOU WITH WITH THAT.

2020 ZERO ZERO TWO IS REVENUE CODING.

SO THE REVENUE CODE CURRENTLY COMES IN AND IT'S ALL RECORDED TO ACCOUNTS RECEIVABLE RATHER THAN THE ACTUAL REVENUE.

SO THAT'S NOT UPDATED REALLY UNTIL THE BANK STATEMENTS ARE RECONCILED AND MAYRA'S IS COMING IN AND CORRECTING THOSE AS THE RECONCILIATIONS ARE BEING PERFORMED AND A LITTLE THROUGHOUT THE YEAR. BUT THEY REALLY NEED TO BE RECORDED TO DIRECTLY TO THE REVENUE WHEN THEY COME INTO THE TREASURER'S OFFICE.

CURRENTLY YOU'RE WORKING ON THAT.

YOU DO HAVE A NEW CASH POLICY.

AND I THINK WE'RE WORKING ON TRYING TO GET THE SYSTEMS OF ENCODE.

AND I CAN'T REMEMBER YOUR OTHER SYSTEM TALKING.

SO POSSIBLY THAT CAN BE UPLOADED IN THE FUTURE.

FEDERAL AND STATE GRANT MANAGEMENT, THE GRANT MANAGER AND COUNTY AUDITOR'S OFFICE, WERE NOT ABLE TO PROVIDE PROVIDE AN ACCURATE ASSISTANCE AND STATE EXPENDITURES FOR THE FISCAL YEAR.

ALL GRANTS SHOULD BE TRACKED CORRECTLY IN THE FINANCIALS SO THAT TIMING AND ACCRUALS ARE TAKEN INTO AN ACCOUNT.

AGAIN, THIS STATEMENT IS BASED ON EXPENDITURES, NOT REVENUE COMING IN.

FOR EXAMPLE, YOU RECEIVED OR YOU SPENT YOUR FUNDS FOR YOUR COVID IN ADVANCE, BUT THAT MONEY DID NOT COME INTO IT UNTIL AFTER YEAR END.

SO WE ALWAYS WANT TO RECORD THAT ON EXPENDITURES, NOT REVENUES.

AND WHEN THAT COMES INTO THE SYSTEM.

ON 2000, OR ON PAGE 83, THIS IS 2020 ZERO ZERO FOUR AGENCIES AND SPECIAL REVENUE ACCOUNTS, THESE PRIMARILY ARE NOT ACCOUNTED FOR IN THE SOFTWARE SYSTEM.

WE'RE TRYING TO GET THEM MOVED AND PRIMARILY BECAUSE THERE'S A NEW GADSBY THAT'S COMING OUT THAT REQUIRES A LOT MORE INFORMATION IN THE AUDIT FOR EACH ONE OF THOSE SYSTEMS OR ACCOUNTS. AND ADDITIONALLY, THE AUDITOR SHOULD BE REVIEWING THESE ON A MONTHLY, IF NOT QUARTERLY BASIS TO MAKE SURE THAT THEY'RE ACCOUNTED FOR CORRECTLY BECAUSE SOME OF THEM AREN'T RECONCILED ON A ROUTINE BASIS, AS WELL AS ANY ITEMS SUCH AS PURCHASING THAT TAKES PLACE. BECAUSE EVEN THOUGH THESE ACCOUNTS AREN'T WITHIN THE COUNTY, THEY BELONG WITH THE ELECTED OFFICIALS, THEY STILL ARE REQUIRED TO FOLLOW PURCHASING POLICIES FOR THE COUNTY AS WELL AS THE STATE. ON TWO THOUSAND 2020 ZERO ZERO FIVE, THE GENERAL LEDGER ACCOUNTS NOT RECONCILED TO UNDERLYING SUBSIDIARY ACCOUNTS AND RECORDS AND RECORDS.

THIS OCCURRED MAINLY IN YOUR ACCOUNTS RECEIVABLES, AND THEY ACTUALLY WERE MUCH BETTER THAN LAST YEAR, BUT STILL ROSE TO THE FACT THAT WE NEEDED TO MAKE A JOURNAL ENTRY IN ONE ACCOUNT THAT WAS PRETTY SUBSTANTIAL SO I COULD NOT TAKE THAT COMMENT OFF.

AND THEN 2020 ZERO ZERO SIX FUNCTION OF THE COUNTY AUDITOR'S OFFICE.

[01:00:04]

WE STILL DON'T THINK THAT THE COUNTY'S AUDITOR'S OFFICE IS DOING ENOUGH OUTSIDE AUDITING OF THE DIFFERENT DEPARTMENTS, AS WELL AS SOMETIMES THEIR AUDITING THEIR OWN WORK WHEN THEY ARE DOING BANK RECONCILIATIONS AND SOME OF THE PURCHASING WORK THAT CARRIE DOES.

SO THERE IS A CORRECTIVE ACTION PLAN THAT WAS WRITTEN BY BARBARA AND IS REQUIRED TO BE SUBMITTED TO THE FEDERAL CLEARINGHOUSE ON PAGE EIGHTY OR I'M SORRY, NINETY.

THIS IS YOUR SEFA, WHICH IS YOUR SCHEDULED EXPENDITURES OF FEDERAL AND STATE AWARDS.

IT'S IMPORTANT TO NOTE THAT YOU HAD ONE POINT THREE MILLION IN FEDERAL AWARDS.

THE BULK OF THAT WAS FROM THE U.S.

DEPARTMENT OF TREASURY FOR THE CORONAVIRUS RELIEF FUND OF ONE POINT TWO MILLION.

WE DO WE DID ISSUE ANOTHER LETTER, COMMUNICATION WITH THOSE CHARGED WITH GOVERNANCE.

AND IT DOES AND DID NOT INCLUDE OUR MATERIAL WEAKNESSES AND SIGNIFICANT DEFICIENCIES THAT WERE REPORTED IN THIS.

BUT I DO WANT TO SAY THAT WE FELT LIKE THE AUDITORS DEPARTMENT COMPLIED WITH ALL ETHICS REQUIREMENTS REQUIRED AND WE OURSELVES, I'M SORRY, COMPLIED WITH ETHIC REQUIREMENTS REGARDING INDEPENDENCE.

YOU DID NOT HAVE ANY SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICY CHANGES AND THE SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING ESTIMATES OR DEPRECIATION CALCULATIONS ON CAPITAL ASSETS ALLOWANCE FOR UNCOLLECTABLE RECEIVABLES FOR FINES AND PROPERTY TAX.

AND THEN THE BIG ONE IS YOUR NET PENSION LIABILITY ASSUMPTIONS FOR MORTALITY RATES AND INVESTMENT RETURNS.

AND OF COURSE, THOSE ARE DONE THROUGH TCDRS.

FINANCIAL DISCLOSURES, WE THINK THE MOST SUBSTANTIAL FINANCIAL DISCLOSURE IS YOUR NET PENSION LIABILITY, WHICH IS NOTE AGE.

AND YOURS WAS AN ASSET THIS YEAR, SO NET PENSION LIABILITY OR ASSET.

WE HAD NO SIGNIFICANT DISAGREEMENTS DURING THE AUDIT, WE DID HAVE UNCORRECTED AND CORRECTED MISS STATEMENTS, AND THESE ARE JUST ITEMS THAT FELL UNDER MATERIALITY.

BUT WE WANT TO MAKE YOU AWARE THAT WE DID MAKE THESE OR ACTUALLY WE DIDN'T MAKE THIS CORRECTION.

IN THE GENERAL FUND. MISCELLANEOUS REVENUE FROM THE PRIOR YEAR WAS RECORDED IN THE CURRENT YEAR, OVERSTATING TOTAL REVENUE IN THE CURRENT YEAR BY EIGHTY THREE THOUSAND FIVE HUNDRED AND TWENTY. IT WAS OVER TRIVIAL.

SO, AGAIN, I WANT TO MAKE YOU AWARE OF THAT.

WE DID MAKE A COUPLE SIGNIFICANT ADJUSTMENTS TO RECLASS VARIOUS REVENUES AND EXPENDITURES CODED TO TRANSFER ACCOUNTS AND TO CORRECT PULLED CASH.

WE WERE NOT IN COMPLIANCE WITH THE PUBLIC FUNDS INVESTMENT ACT.

YOU'RE REQUIRED TO RECEIVE QUARTERLY REPORTS FROM THE TREASURY DEPARTMENT THAT OUTLINES ALL OF YOUR INVESTMENTS AND THE ACTUAL INTEREST RATE THAT WAS EARNED, WHAT YOU RECEIVED FOR THOSE ACCOUNTS AND ANY CAPITAL GAINS OR LOSSES IN THOSE ACCOUNTS, IT'S REQUIRED TO BE PRESENTED AND APPROVED TO COMMISSIONERS COURT QUARTERLY.

ON THE PURCHASE ORDERS.

I JUST WANT TO POINT OUT THAT THERE WAS ADDITIONAL STAFFING IN THE PURCHASING DEPARTMENT AND THIS DEPARTMENT IMPROVED OR THE PURCHASING IMPROVED MUCH THANKS TO THE PURCHASING DEPARTMENT AS WELL AS THE ACCOUNTS PAYABLE PERSON.

WE DO THINK THAT ALL PURCHASING REALLY SHOULD BE DONE THROUGH THE PURCHASING DEPARTMENT BECAUSE WE DON'T WANT WE DON'T WANT THE COUNTY AUDITORS DEPARTMENT AUDITING THEIR OWN WORK.

DEPARTMENT DEPOSITS.

WE NOTED THAT DISTRICT OFFICIALS, SANITATION AND OTHER DEPARTMENTS OF THE COUNTY BRING OVER DEPOSITS TO THE TREASURER'S OFFICE MONTHLY.

WE SURE WOULD LIKE THIS TO BE DONE AT LEAST WEEKLY.

AND WE REALIZE THAT SOME OF THESE COMMENTS THAT WE MADE LAST YEAR, WE WERE HERE IN JUNE.

SO IT'S HARD TO GET ALL OF THESE CORRECTED IN A THREE, FOUR MONTH PERIOD OF TIME.

SO I KNOW YOU ARE STILL WORKING ON THIS SUGGESTION AND THEN FIXED ASSET TRACKING, THE FIXED ASSET TRACKING IMPROVED GREATLY.

WE DO WANT TO SUGGEST THAT YOU ACTUALLY DO A PHYSICAL SPOT CHECK EVERY WELL, AT LEAST THIS YEAR YOU HAVE A LOT OF FIXED ASSETS THAT ARE REALLY NOT OR SHOULD NOT BE ON YOUR

[01:05:06]

FIXED ASSET LIST.

AND YOU ALSO WANT TO KNOW WHERE YOUR FIXED ASSETS ARE.

SO WE SUGGEST THAT YOU DO A PHYSICAL INVENTORY OF ALL PHYSICAL ASSETS AND THEN CONTINUE THE IMPROVEMENT IN THIS AREA.

I THAT'S ALL I HAVE, IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, I'D LOVE TO ANSWER THEM.

I KNOW THAT'S A VERY QUICK OR VERY LONG, DEPENDING ON IF YOU HAVE TO SIT THROUGH IT, PRESENTATION. BUT I'D LOVE TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS AND ANSWER ANY COMMENTS.

COMMISSIONERS? IT'S A LOT TO DIGEST.

IT WAS A LOT TO READ.

YES. AND YOU'RE ALWAYS WELCOME TO GIVE ME A CALL.

OUR NUMBER IS ON THE OPINION PAGE AS WELL AS BOTH LETTERS.

AND IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, CELINA AND I WOULD BE VERY HAPPY TO ANSWER THEM.

AND WE WANT TO THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

IT WAS A IT WAS YOU KNOW, THESE THINGS CAN BE AN UNPLEASANT EXPERIENCE AND IT WASN'T.

SO WE REALLY APPRECIATE THAT.

WELL, THE GOOD THING IS, YOU KNOW, EVERYTHING CAN BE IMPROVED.

SO THAT'S THAT'S ALWAYS THE POSITIVE.

WE WANT YOU TO TAKE IS THERE WAS IMPROVEMENT, A GREAT IMPROVEMENT LAST YEAR.

AND AS LONG AS YOU CONTINUE TO IMPROVE, THAT'S ALWAYS A GREAT THING.

GOOD. THANK YOU. THAT'S GREAT TO HEAR.

OK, COMMISSIONERS, SO I'M GOING TO LOOK FOR A MOTION TO APPROVE THE ANNUAL FINANCIAL AUDIT REPORT FOR THE FISCAL YEAR ENDING SEPTEMBER 30TH, 2020.

I SO MOVE.

WE HAVE A MOTION, DO WE HAVE A SECOND? SECOND. WE HAVE A MOTION AND A SECOND.
