He explained further that at the <br />same time he got this request he had sent a memo to the Historical Society and the Olympic Gateway <br />Center advising them that there is about $6,000 in additional Hotel/Motel funds available from 1995. <br />The Historical Society had requested some additional funds during the budget process, but he has not <br />heard back from them yet on the status of that project. He recommends that nothing be done on this <br />request until the Historical Society and the Olympic Gateway Center respond to his memo. <br /> <br />Gary Rowe re: Discussion of Payment of Judicial Benefits: Public Services Director <br />Gary Rowe reported that last year a bill was received from the State Administrator of the Courts for the <br />County to pay half of the benefits for the Superior Court Judge. The Washington State Association of <br />Counties asked for an opinion from the Attorney General to see if this was an appropriate expense for <br />the Counties to pay. The Attorney General has responded that Counties are responsible for paying these <br />expenses. Auditor Donna Eldridge reported that the County owes about $3,500 for 1995 and will owe <br />$4,600 for 1996. Gary Rowe reported that an adjustment will have to be made to the Superior Court <br />budget for this payment. <br /> <br />Commissioner Hinton moved to approve payment of the Superior Court Judge benefits to the State. <br />Commissioner Huntingford seconded the motion. Commissioner Hinton and Commissioner <br />Huntingford voted for the motion. Chairman Wojt abstained from voting. The motion carried. <br /> <br />Gary Rowe re: Discussion of Hirin¡: Policy: Gary Rowe reported that one of the 1996 <br />budget goals was to work toward reducing the number of full time equivalent employees (FTE's) in the <br />General Fund to a level of 5 per 1,000 population, with an overall reduction to 9 FTE's per 1,000 <br />population by 1998.
