The HR commissioners recommended terminating Lee Larson due to him not moving to Washburn as agreed upon and excessive absenteeism.

Simon motioned to proceed with termination of Larson. Dockter seconded. Upon roll call, all members present voted aye. Motion carried.
 
Thomas motioned to continue health insurance for Larson and his family through the month of March. Dockter seconded. Upon roll call, all members present voted aye. Motion carried.
 
Thomas adjourned the meeting at 6:42 PM.
