A great big THANK YOU to members of the community that attended the Meet and Greet held last Saturday at the Ramada in Pine. PSWID board candidates running for the May 20, 2014 election were busy answering questions, listening hard, explaining their ideas and I saw many of them making notes on the issues being raised. Members of the public seemed pleased to be able to meet and talk to the candidates face to face.

Gila County Recorder’s Office member of staff was on site assisting those who wished to register to vote.

The hot dogs, chips and cold drinks were a hit and the volunteers worked very hard before and during the event and seemed to be enjoying themselves. I am sure that the next day many of them crashed …… At least I did! Without all of their help, hard work and sense of humor the day could not have been such a success and we extend to them many thanks and much appreciation.

Yes the citizens committee will soon thereafter be presenting to the Gila BOS who are acting at the Board of Directors for PSWID, the proposed budget. It is then up to the County BOS to review the proposed budget and then decide if they will accept the presentation or suggest further changes.

Pam Mason 4 weeks ago on Notice of PSWID Meeting Thursday March 20, 2014

Tom, thank you very much for your computer advice, I will print it out and have it in front of me :-)

My issue is that when I am typing an email I would like to sweep the odd sentence from reference material and post it right on the email. Then further on do the same again without having to go through a more complicated procedure that I am likely to screw up. To cut corners I have tried to just print the sentence I want and type it in, but because of the dark colored background I can't read the thing! I get impatient to get what I want put in the email before I forget what it was I wanted to say!.... Must be the high altitude it couldn't possibly be me!

We were advised that the investigation on alleged areas of concern with previous PSWID is still in the hands of the Arizona Auditor Generals Office in Phoenix. Contingent upon whether or not a report is handed down from the State Agency, will determine if Gila County decides to order a managerial and financial audit themselves or not. It is my guess there will probably be a fuller account on this written by Reporter from Roundup in the paper tomorrow.

As regards web sites the one put up by Gila County certainly needs updating particularly who is heading up certain departments. I am no computer whiz and make mistakes all the time, but why does the County show important information on a strong colored background that makes my printed copy impossible to read?

Amen. Marilyn was loved and respected by so many and she took such great care of the early morning coffee guys and those that went back for iced tea in the afternoon. We will miss her very much. May she rest in peace.

Haven't heard a dicky-bird ! :-)

Actually I asked about the status of the financial and managerial audit of PSWID by an outside firm yesterday during call to the public at the BOS meeting. Chairman Pastor said they would try to update us at PSWID meeting this coming Thursday. As I recall staff were to find a company uniquely qualified.
