BOARD BUDGET REQUEST FORM

 

Ione Springer recited the form to the members of the board asking if the board anticipates a need to change future budget expenses. Ms. Springer stated she may like the board to request an additional estimate of costs for the annual budget. This is to consider the requests from other Idaho state agencies who would like to require level licensure for residential care facility administrators. Roger Hales stated this would require a change in the board’s act. Ione Springer added that she does not feel the standards for licensure should be lowered.

 

Shirlie Meyer stated that if the Health and Welfare department wants to pursue a state based examination for residential care administrators then perhaps the board should invite them for discussion. The board has asked that Randy May and Jamie Simpson be added to a future meeting agenda for discussion on the examination.     

 

A motion was made by Sharon Ashcraft to adjourn the meeting at 12:50 p.m. Seconded by Shirlie Meyer, motion carried.
