Lindell Howard stated that he had a protest. He said his father had applied for and received the elderly tax freeze credit several years ago. However, this last year when he applied for the elderly tax freeze, he was denied. Mr. Howard further explained that he was living with his father as his father was unable to care for himself. Auditor Kiepke told him this would be a reason for the application to be denied as his income would be factored in with his father’s.

Nathan Snyder of Tech Solutions appeared before the Board to discuss options for training and to answer questions commissioners had.
Chairperson Bode would like to see training for department heads as well as commissioners. The problem is knowing what kind of training is needed. As Mr. Snyder says, “we don’t know what you don’t know and you may not know what you don’t know.”
One thing Bode would like is for department heads to be able to come to a commission meeting and be able to present on the Apple T.V. Bode would also like to see additional training on Drop Box.
Mr. Snyder addressed the Fairground project and said that he is waiting for quotes from Sound Solutions who will be a partner in the project. Mr. Snyder stressed that Tech Solutions is not an audio/video company, which is part of the project.
There was quite a discussion regarding cybersecurity. Mr. Snyder said there are some cool things coming out in the future to prevent a breach. However, he said there will always be threats.
