  1. Call to Order
    Meeting was called to order at 9:11am.
  2. Roll Call
    Chairman Lisa Jacobs, Commissioners Julie Biehl, IJJC Chairman George Timberlake, Toni Irving and Esther Franco-Payne. Quorum present. Staff: Robert Vickery, Julie Stremlau, Karima Douglas and Ron Smith.
  3. State Fiscal Year 2016 Local Funding - Review of Applications and Scoring
    The group discussed each application and the spreadsheets provided by IJJC Executive Director, Robert Vickery. The differences in scoring were considered and certain aspects of the applications in question were discussed. IJJC Chairman Timberlake believes some sites need technical assistance. The group discussed the different areas where applicants lacked and how to address those issues. They also discussed the merits in each application. It appears there are about nine new applications for funding. IJJC Chairman Timberlake added that sites need to develop sustainable funding streams and that will be difficult for many. The Committee determined that further review of the applications is necessary. The group will meet again on March 9th for a final review of the applications with recommendations to follow.
  4. Other State Fiscal Year 2016 Contracts
    Not discussed due to time constraints.
  5. New Business
