Submitted by United 4 Youth Countywide

The United 4 Youth Countywide Board met at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 6, at the Prairie Hills USD No. 113 Board office. Board members present were Jessica Atwood, Adam Reel, Scott Anson, Nick Scott, Krista Stallbaumer and Heather Stewart. Executive Director Sarah Renyer also was present.

The board approved the February minutes.

Scott gave the treasurer’s report. He stated that the commissioner’s check for the first quarter has been received, but the other check has not been received.

Scott also said that if we paid the SADD sponsors directly, we would need have them fill out 1099 forms. The board discussed the mentor coordinator payments and if we should issue 1099 forms. The discussion was tabled until the next meeting in order for Scott to check on the threshold for federal reporting.

Stewart explained that $200 would be taken out of each of the grant payments going forward, in order to cover the 5 percent given to the board at the beginning of the grant period.

Stewart also gave a brief overview of what was discussed at the workgroup meeting in February. The workgroup decided to move forward with the It Matters campaign and to increase enforcement throughout the county.
