Minutes: 

Chairman Ziegler discussed Mr. Bistline's contract.   It ends on September 30, 2016, but may be extended by mutual consent of both parties.  If the agreement is not terminated by September 1, 2016, it is automatically extended for an additional year.  However, either party can terminate the agreement with 30 days notice.

  • It was determined that nothing needed to be changed at this time.

Next Chairman Ziegler brought up Dr. Blackburn's contract as a follow up to his evaluation. He identified the following items: 

  1. Modify the contract to allow Dr. Blackburn to share in the same raise as other employees.
  2. Allow personal use of Dr. Blackburn's vehicle outside of Brevard with the stipulation that he pays for fuel.
  3. Consideration of contract extension.

Discussion ensued among Board members. 

Mr. Bistline provided clarifications.  It was then determined that each Board member should have a conversation with Mr. Bistline and he would then provide a memo to the Board, as a collective, outlining the questions from each Board member and his responses.

Information was also requested on current procedures for all BPS employees regarding vehicle usage.
