Good Afternoon: I hope you have had a good week. A few things to share with you this week.
Meeting room availability: You have or will soon receive a request to provide information to update the data base for meeting rooms in your county that have internet and phone availability. Please respond to this request to Janel in the Hutchinson Regional Office for Kandiyohi and Renville and Mary Jo in the Marshall Regional Office for Lincoln, Lyon, Redwood, Yellow Medicine, Lac qui Parle and Chippewa counties.
Extension Committee meetings: All of our counties in the region have Extension Committee meetings in July. At these meetings the agenda will include program reports, report from the summer 4H Intern and the 2010 budget proposal. Please be sure the program reports and budget updates are provided to Mary Jo prior to the meeting for inclusion in the agenda packet. Also, please let me know what program staff will be attending the July Extension Committee meeting in your county.
2010 Budget Proposals. I have prepared the 2010 budget proposal to fit within the direction given by county administration. Based on that direction the budget proposals for our counties reflect a range from an increase of 1.5% to a decrease of 4.5 per cent. Budget proposals also include any existing salary agreement that is in place in the county for 2010.
July 3: The Regional Offices will be closed next Friday, July 3 for the Independence Day Holiday.
Enjoy your weekend.
