    Discussion: Mr. Hurst asked, “How big were the piles of the powder substance?” Mr. Harris replied, “There were no photos taken so he was not sure because he did not take the call.”
    Mr. Hurst also had a request on the Idaho Bureau of Homeland Security Emergency Response Incident Report form if they could change the verbiage that says medical treatment and costs to say medical treatment and monitoring treatment costs because there is not always medical treatment involved.
    Resolution: Mr. Kane moved to approve item 2 and place it on the Consent Agenda. Mr. Fulkerson seconded the motion. The motion carried on a unanimous voice vote.



3. Ada County Clerk
Request for reimbursement of costs in the amount of $1,454.79 incurred by Ada County to prosecute three State Penitentiary inmates pursuant to Idaho Code §18-2507.

    Discussion: Mr. Hurst asked, “Why are we paying the District Clerk, Magistrate Clerk and Legal Assistant’s fees? The statue states that we pay the costs of prosecution.” He stated that he does realize that the Judge has ordered it to be paid. Mr. Benjamin replied, “The statute allows prosecution the cost to prosecute it from the hours the attorney bills at the rate. Administration has hours used to put claim together to submit it. Just like the haz-mat, there is a small documentation fee to collect all the information and submit it. There are also bailiff costs and other court costs as well.”

    Resolution: Mr. Hurst moved to approve item 3 and place it on the Consent Agenda. Mr. Kane seconded the motion. The motion carried on a unanimous voice vote.

4. Office of the Attorney General
Request for payment of Attorney Fees, Costs, and Expenses in the matter of
K.W. v. Armstrong in the amount of $227,347.87. Approval of this claim for payment is subject to final approval of the class action settlement by the federal district court.

Discussion: Mr. Kane stated that these expenses are to be paid for out of Health and Welfare’s appropriation. This is just approving the claim as proper.
    Resolution: Mr. Kane moved to approve item 4 and place it on the Consent Agenda. Mr. Hurst seconded the motion. The motion carried on a unanimous voice vote.
