Greendale EMS contract - approved for $20,000 each for 2 units.

Contract wit FSSA Re: Inmate Application for Medicare- Baudendistel said this is mandatory for inmates that are there 30 days or more. Family Social Services Administration is FSSA. It helps the county get reimbursed for medical expenses. Randall repeated what Baudendistel said and added that inmates would be better off when they got out as they would be healthier. McHenry said they should table this to be sure that Sheriff Kreinhop and Lusby want this done. TABLED.

PAWS Agreement- TABLED at Baudendistel’s request a some details needed to be worked out.

AUDITOR- Leah Bailey covered for Pennington- Claims and October 6th Minutes- approved. 2016 Payroll Schedule was approved. 

ATTORNEY- Andy Baudendistel- reviewed a couple contracts for microfilm services and digital back up of records for the County Recorder, Glen Wright.This is with CSI. It was in his budget.

COMMISSIONER COMMENTS- Kevin Lynch- congratulated Lawrenceburg and EC have both Men’s and Women’s soccer teams go on to Regionals. They bring this to their school and the county as well. 
He attended the national conference of passenger  railroads in Indy. They want to continue the Chicago train on to Cincinnati possibly. Not an easy project, but one that would be beneficial if it could ever happen.  
The Bright Connector Study had their first meeting with the consultant and advisory board of residents and business owners in that area. He is impressed with turnout. 
He also thanked Randy Lyness for stepping up and putting his hat in the ring to possibly fill the state rep position vacated by Jud McMillin. Randy ran for this prior to Jud McMillin and has been on county council for 15 years - on and off in the past 30 years. 
Lynch also said he did not get a bad haircut- he’s had chemo for the past several months-. he is doing well and the progress is good. 

Little- said we will also keep you in our prayers. And he could go on about other things but it’s too nice outside so we can go out and enjoy this sunshine.

McHenry- Rick Fields passed recently- could go on and on about all he did in the community. They will have  celebration of life. And we will keep you ( Kevin Lynch) in our prayers. I know this is serious and you have been upbeat. I have a lot of respect for you.

PUBLIC COMMENT- Celeste Calvitto- update on the Litter Committee- Arlington, West Countyline and Chesterville done, by Community Corrections. More in D-2 done and starting in D-1 next. Lots of interest in neighborhood groups and churches and cleaned up some Bright roads. The roads done so far did not require any closures.

The is from a CMS published 3 weeks ago.

MediCARE will not pay for medical items and services
furnished to a beneficiary who was incarcerated or in custody under a
penal statute or rule at the time the items and services are furnished.

And MediCAID will only pay AFTER the inmate has been hospitalized for over 24 hours.
