Ms. Arp commented on the potential of receiving conflicting legal opinions from IEC and the City Attorney. She felt this would be something to look at during budget time.

He felt such items as training would also be useful for raising the current employee morale and funding could perhaps come form the training portion of the budget. Mr. Venable commented he would like more information on the organization. Ms. Sholty stated that the City's current insurance provider does charge a fee for consultation on employee matters. It was requested that Ms. Sholty inquire if the membership could be canceled if the available resources were not being utilized to a high degree. It was agreed that Ms. Sholty would request that an IEC representative attend a management (department head) meeting. If the departments were interested in the services available, funding sources would then be investigated.
