Mr. Loomis moved adoption, second by Mr. Piombo. Mr. Williams stated this is just another source to get food for the jail. Mr. Rigge explained that it is a special contract with the State for the jail only. If the county wanted to purchase through this process they would need to go through the Sheriff Department. He explained that this gives the department leverage with the cost of food for the jail. Additionally, if a disaster should occur then we will have access to an ample supply of food for the whole county. He clarified that this is in addition to the regular food bid process the county does now. Mr. Loomis asked if the date should be July 1. As no purchases have occurred it was agreed to change the start date to July 1 in the second WHEREAS of the resolution as well as correct the duplicate wording. All members voting aye, edited resolution approved.

Mr. Spaulding moved adoption, second by Mr. Piombo. Ms. Goldner explained that this is the second year the state has offered additional funds for the supervision of sex offenders. We meet the criteria set and they fund an extra amount for every level 2 or 3 offender who gets a polygraph for treatment purposes, amounting to $300 per person. The other sum of $5,000 is new and provides each county that amount for the return of a sex offender to their jurisdiction. All members voting aye, resolution approved.
Discontinue Monitoring Alarms Sheriff's Department-Tabled from last meeting was requested to be tabled again to the following meeting by Mr. Schrader.
