        Survey Programs for Pests and Diseases $ 70,000
      Kelly Nielsen reported this is the annual request for pest deficiency spending and then they will ask for a supplemental.

He said the requests vary from year to year depending on the pest situation. Darrell Manning made a motion to recommend approval on the Consent Agenda. David High seconded the motion. The motion passed unanimously.


17. INDUSTRIAL COMMISSIONDon Robbins, Fiscal Officer
    Request for authorization for an exception to Idaho Code § 59-1014(a) which requires agencies to deposit with the State Treasurer on a daily basis any cash, checks, etc., accrued during a twenty-four (24) hour period equaling two hundred dollars ($200) or more, specifically for compliance penalty checks received endorsed as “payment in full”, pursuant to Idaho Code § 72-319.
      Don Robbins stated this request is for an exception to deposit checks daily if the check is endorsed as payment in full because sometimes it is not the final payment. David High asked if this was only for checks for payment in full and if they have the necessary internal controls. Kelly replied yes. David High made a motion to recommend approval on the Consent Agenda with the proviso that the waiver be allowed for not more than two business days. Darrell Manning seconded the motion.

      Tim O’Leary reported the compensatory time was accrued while helping with the POST classes. Darrell Manning asked how many classes are held each year and if there is some down time when they can reduce the comp time. Tim stated there are approximately ten sessions a year in addition to some refresher courses, and the employees usually schedule vacation during that time. David High asked if the employees have an expectation they will be paid for any compensatory time. Tim said POST has not been too much of a problem and these hours are about the highest accrued. Darrell Manning made a motion to recommend approval on the Consent Agenda. David High seconded the motion. The motion passed unanimously.
