Changes made to per diem policy

Outgoing commissioner Dan Whitcomb recommended a change in the commissioner compensation resolution that will allow commissioners to receive per diem payments for attending meetings the same day as board meetings, provided those meetings are not concurrent with the board meeting. For example, there might be a board meeting in the morning and a committee meeting in the evening. The change was made. The annual salary for commissioners was set at $17,304. Per diem payments are $45 per meeting.
