Moving to the Quarterly Funds Report, Dr. Mattingly discussed how the Detachment/Annexation process works. She also commented that the ROE/ISC State Revenue is $0 this quarter due to the lack of a state budget. Lastly, Dr. Mattingly reported the balance of the Maintenance Fund is $8100. The proposed FY17 ROE #11 Office Operations Budget was presented. It is unchanged from FY16. Dr. Mattingly noted that the counties portion may vary due to 2015 Assessed Property Values paid in 2016.
