  • Brian Bingle addressed the Board about the Christian County for Economic Development project. Mr. Bingle is the City Administrator at Nixa. Here to explain the opportunity for the City of Billings in two ways; one is participation and the other is financial that will be left up to the City. However, your participation is needed, we want you at the table. There will be a 501(c)(3) established. This is about Christian County and Billings is a part of Christian. In November of 2015, Steve Childress of Ozark and Bingle were given direction to begin work on the Economic Development. A meeting was held in December 2015 for all the Mayors in Christian County to make sure there was a desire to develop an Economic Development. When the 501(c)(3) is established, the investors will form a Board of Directors, will have the opportunity to serve as Board Members. At this time, it has not been determined how will work. We anticipate that the larger investors will be given the first right of refusal to sit on the Board. When the Board is established, the 501(c)(3) would be in receipt of the memorandum of understanding. Coker asked if the City would be covered under the 501(c)(3)? Bingle stated the City would not be eligible as a City for the 501(c)(3). Venable then asked if they could work under the umbrella of the 501(c)(3)? Bingle responded Billings could work through the Board to petition them to get Grant funding on behalf of the City.

 

We have now been working since the latter part of 2015, here we are now in April 2016,

we have $77,500.00 from Fremont Hills, Clever, Ozark, Nixa and Christian County. Christian County, Ozark and Nixa have each contributed $25,000.00 per year for 5 years, however we need $141,000.00 to hire a professional economic development director with the necessary certifications and qualifications to work on the County’s behalf. Coker stated is that basically just someone’s salary? Bingle responded that is salary, overhead, certifications, trainings and conferences. We have received to date about $31,000.00 from the private sector, we still need about $29,000.00 to meet our goal.

Upon receiving that we can proceed with the Memorandum of Understanding and hire an attorney to file for a 501(c)(3). Then seeking from the investors individuals to become members of the Board. Then the Board would take over operations of management, the hiring, the establishment of the goals and procedures for the purpose of economic development on behalf of Christian County. Venable asked where it would be based out of Nixa? Bingle responded at the present it is Christian County. The reason I say that is because, in 2013 a firm out of Texas was hired to do an action plan. That action was to establish a 501(c)(3), at that time Nixa stated it was all about them not regional. Since that time there have been elections and the current council is in agreement that is not regionalism or isolating, and have given him direction to proceed. Christian County is impartial ground, one of the things that is not covered in the $141,000.00 is the overhead, Christian County is willing to house this person in their planning and developing department which they have room to do so. Venable asked which is where. Bingle responded downtown in Ozark, they would cover the office space, receptionist, telephones, things of that sort. They are in agreement to do this for no cost. Venable asked who would be the person directly over this person. Bingle responded the Board of Directors. Certainly Billings has the opportunity to contribute financially, but Billings is wanted at the table. So whoever you assign to call Bingle or Childers or Ray Weters. Let them know that Billings wants to be involved. Mayor Pierce stated that Billings is the only town in Christian County that has a railroad. Venable asked when it is projected this goal will be reached? They are working with the School Districts and Community Foundation of the Ozarks. Also Empire and White River, Cox and Mercy. There are other options. Banks, Engineers groups. They would like to have more participation from the private sector because the public sector does not move as fast as the private sector. Motion to become a partner in Christian County Economic Development for a commitment of 5 years made by Venable seconded by Coker. Voting “Aye” Venable, Fender, Brown, Coker, Powell and VanZandt. Voting “Nay” None. No abstentions.

  • Hopkins has update on cost of Code Books. At this time it will be between $1327.00   and $1526.00.
  • Mayor, Venable and VanZandt interviewed 3 people for the police positions. They agreed to hire 2, Jeremy Thomas and Shane Dempsey, both were hired at $11.00 per hour. Thomas has already started and Dempsey will start April 25th. Mayor would like to have a motion from the Board to approve these hires. Motion to approve the hiring of Thomas and Dempsey for the Police Department made by Fender seconded by Powell. Voting “Aye” Venable, Fender, Brown, Coker, Powell and VanZandt. Voting “Nay” None. No abstentions.
  • Mayor informed the Board that Hilburn has passed his water test. Motion to a pay raise of $.25 per hour beginning with the next pay period made by Coker seconded by Brown. Voting “Aye” Venable, Fender, Brown, Coker, Powell and VanZandt. Voting “Nay” None. No abstentions.
  • Motion to review and approve payment of wages, expenses, bills, statements and other expenditures for the month of March 2016 made by VanZandt seconded by Fender. Voting “Aye” Fender, Brown, Coker, Powell and VanZandt. Voting “Nay” Venable. No abstentions.

 

 

Mayor’s Comments. Wanted to say Thank you to the citizens and staff for their support over the years. The staff is one of the best of all the small towns around here.  Ruth Haskins is our City Clerk and Court Clerk, she has done an excellent job.   The City Treasurer and Deputy City Clerk also does an excellent job, you heard the Auditor, with Hopkins everything is always in order. Hopkins makes sure the Board gets all the information. Hopkins helps with all things that need to be taken care of, sometimes she does not get enough credit for what she does.

Mayor Pierce just wanted to say Thank you to the staff and keep up the good work for Mr. Hodges and the future Boards. Thank you also to Randy Poindexter for stepping up and taking over the wastewater plant, when he did not know something, he would find someone who did.

And Chief Taylor Thank you for you long years of service to the City of Billings, you are probably seeing the grandchildren of the first people you stopped many years ago. Chief knows what is going on in his department, writes his own Grants and knows most of the citizens in town. Chief does not get enough recognition. Mayor Pierce stated will take a short intermission for the New Mayor to take over.
