    REGULAR AGENDA


    5. Department of Water Resources --Approved
    Request for overtime approval to cover reasonable overtime costs for Water Resources employees that
    cannot be absorbed in the current budget through salary savings.

    Discussion: Mr. Tuthill explained to the Board that the problem is the Department has a backlog in processing
    water rights applications for transfer. His suggestion was to offer overtime opportunities for employees
    involved in this process to give a boost to the application processing. He asked Sen. Cameron to send a letter
    endorsing this concept from his perspective. The Department is looking to absorb the costs with the current budget, and can do that through standard salary savings by positions that are open. The Department is looking at a
    maximum of $30,000 over the next six months to be used for overtime. Mr. Tuthill stated that the Department
    is only looking for approval of the concept at this time.

    Mr. Ysursa responded that the Board approved the same type of request for the Transportation Department for
    fixing bridges. He said he would approve of this concept.

    Gov. Otter asked what the turnaround time would be on new permits at the end of six months.

    Mr. Tuthill said that the Department will have a spike in processing because of this overtime, and will have
    continuing emphasis on transfers. At the end of six months the Department will show the Board a spike in
    processing and additional information on the approval achieved as a result of this effort.

    Gov. Otter complimented Mr. Tuthill on his honesty and coming before the Board for permission.

    Resolution: Gov. Otter moved to approve item 5. Mr. Ysursa seconded the motion. The motion carried
    on a unanimous voice vote.
