The Rooks County Board of Commissioners met for the purpose of reviewing and approving the monthly payroll and end-of-the-month vouchers.  Commissioners present were:  Chairman, John Ruder, and Member, Tim Berland.  Commissioner Greg Balthazor was absent due to an appointment.  Ruthmary Muir, Rooks County Clerk, was also present.  Ruder called the meeting to order, and asked all to rise and recite the Pledge of Allegiance. 

Butch Post, Emergency Management, requested signatures for the EMPG Grant.  Post did not think a federal audit would need to be done this year because the federal monies received did not exceed the threshold.  Ruder made a motion to sign the audit certification form.  Berland seconded the motion. 

Post also presented the newly updated bylaws for LEPC.  Ruder made a motion to accept the Emergency Planning Committee bylaws.  Berland seconded this motion. 

Ruder made a motion to sign Rooks County Transportation Services budget request in the amount of $9,000.  Berland seconded the motion. 

Ruder made a motion to review, approve and sign the end-of the-month vouchers and October payroll.  Berland seconded the motion.
