County Updates:
County Code 2.0 Amendment Public Hearing Recap and Next Steps –
Geoffrey said the BCC only went over 2.10.060, not 2.10.080. The group will circulate a recommendation to give feedback on the county code 2.10.060 and 2.10.080 to submit to the BCC.

CCI Openings:
Amy explained process of recruiting for an ABC. We can open a recruitment and have applications at January meeting. Susan recommended broadening the outreach to enhance participation from a more diverse population.

Damascus Community Event
CCI members were invited to participate in the community event. The date changed to January 28, 2017. 12 p.m. to 3 p.m.

Training Recommendations for Hamlet/Village Board Members:
The next public hearing is Nov. 23, 2016. Rick asked if we can give input at the hearing, specifically the training piece. Amy said yes.

Laurie spoke with Paul Savas and he was for the committees to work things out for a specific period of time before the BCC is involved.

Jerry said the same process we use to set up a hamlet or village should be the same process to dissolve a hamlet or village.

Geoffrey said to keep the wording as it is and let the BCC make the final decision.

Resolution from the Committee:
We would like the BCC to consider the following points:
Include training on a time table (30 day, 90 day, etc.) – online training preferred
The BCC should have a process by which a hamlet or village can seek dissolution.
Geoffrey said seeking dissolution should have a process.

Rick talked about the training with his employer and how they use online training. Amy said online training could take some time and it does need to be ADA accessible. Training has been informal in the past. Rick will ask input from other hamlets.

Motion: That CCI submit to the BCC the text of the approved statement of concerns regarding training and dissolution of hamlets and villages formulated at this meeting.
Rick 1st, Geoffrey 2nd, unanimous

Action Items:

Meeting adjourned at 8 p.m.

Next meeting: Tuesday, January 17, 2017 – 6:00 p.m.
