Motion by Thornton, 2nd by Dutton to approve the May’s treasurer's report. Thornton had a follow up question from last month on Laura Burns’ hours and pay. Mayor stated he had looked into it and that he feels we need someone in that position for 10 hours a week not “as needed” as the council approved
when the position was created years ago. Thornton stated that the personnel never saw an application or approved the hiring of Burns and that she has been receiving a paycheck since October of 2017 but last month you said she was still training. Thornton asked if Burns was told on “as needed” and the
mayor said yes. Thornton also asked why Tammy Shaffer’s pay changes every week, is she getting overtime? The mayor said he didn’t know but he would check into it. Thornton said we are over budget
because of all of this. Mayor said we could talk about it more later on in the meeting when the item is to be discussed on the agenda. Motion passes 7-0.
