Lori Eichman, Rooks County Health Department Administrator, was present to update the Commissioners with the activities of the department.  The 2015 Chrysler 200 was sold on Purple Wave for $9,900.00.  The front door of the office has been replaced, but they did not put in a new threshold at the time.  They will be back to complete the project.  There are termites in the office, once again.  The original contract for termites was with Terminix, out of Salina.  They have been called.  The new flooring is getting installed on the 16th of May.  Eichman will get a storage unit to use temporarily to store the heavier equipment during installation.  A prison work crew is scheduled to help move the desks and heavier equipment to the storage unit.  The huge rolling file cabinet will need to be un-assembled and moved by the vendor.  Mid-Continent Restoration, from Fort Scott, will start on the outside limestone restoration on May 31st.  Eichman will check with them to see if they do the painting, as well.  Eichman said her resources will be limited at the office during the flooring installation.

Zach Brown, Custodian, reported that the board is needing to be replace in the chiller/air conditioner at the courthouse.  He has spoken with Glassman’s and they are thinking the parts may be thirteen (13) days out, but they are trying their best to get the parts sooner.  The representative from Glassman thinks the board has gone out because of the frequent power outages the courthouse has had in the past month.  The estimated price of fixing the problem is approximately $2,300.  Brown will also check with the insurance company to see if this cost can be added to the same wind-damages claim. 

With no further business to transact, Ruder made a motion to adjourn the meeting.  Berland seconded the motion, and Balthazor agreed.
