Meeting Minutes

February 2, 2015

Meeting was called to order at 7:03 p.m. with Mike Mocniak, Eleanor Kilmer, and Robert Cook present. Mike presented a list of prospective election inspectors, who have been asked and have agreed to serve if appointed, including Carol Friday, Karen Osowski, Mike Mocniak, Ken Lynch, and Karen Lynch. Bob motioned that these 5 people be appointed as election inspectors for the 2-24-15 election. The motion was seconded by Eleanor. The motion was approved.


Mike stated that he will name Carol Friday as election inspector chairperson. There has been a previous resolution establishing a receiving board so no further action is necessary at this time. The public accuracy test was set for 2-10-15 at 9:00 am at the township hall and the commission authorized Mike to conduct the test.


Mike suggested that the election inspector wage be increased to $10 per hour because at the current rate of $7.50 it is getting difficult to find people willing to be inspectors. The current average wage according to MTA is $11.25. the commission agreed to the increase and will propose it at the February board meeting.  

The meeting was adjourned at 7:10 pm.
