The budget board also discussed the 2012 Employee Personnel Policy Handbook. Several items they plan on looking into include workers’ compensation, military policies, annual vacation and sick leave, and the dress code.

In new business, the board discussed the following:
· Continuing monthly meetings
· Sending invitations to day cares to visit the Cleveland County Courthouse on Halloween to trick-or-treat
