The Eddy County Commission will hear a number of budget and finance reports at its regularly-scheduled meeting Tuesday in Carlsbad.

The commission will hear a December 2016 treasurer’s report from Eddy County treasurer Laurie Pruitt, as well as reports from finance director Roberta Smith on December revenue and expenses, budget versus actual; the Fiscal Year 2016-17 DFA second quarterly report; and the FY 2016-17 second-quarter Lodger’s Tax report.

County manager Rick Rudometkin will update the commission on 2017 Multi-Line and Law Enforcement Pool contributions, as well as the mid-year budget review and thoughts on the future vision for Eddy County.

The commission will also consider approving a letter supporting disapproval by the U.S. House Committee on Natural Resources of the “venting and flaring” rule.

Included in the county’s consent agenda is a resolution established a four-day workweek for administrative offices and departments.

The resolution states county offices would open one hour earlier and one hour later – 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. – than their current standard operating hours and that the savings in operational costs related to Friday closure would aid the county’s expenses.
