During public comment, Schoolcraft County Treasurer Julie Roscioli spoke out against the board's decision.
She noted she had been told the position will not be filled due to the fact the county would no longer receive approximately $32,000 worth of indirect charges from Schoolcraft County Public Transit for work the treasurer's and clerk's offices completed for them. "Indirect charges are a cost to them for services the county provides them - we do their payroll, accounts payable, we administer their MERS (Municipal Employees' Retirement System), health insurance, all human resources, and we receive and deposit their money," she explained. "Several of you (commissioners) are citing the reason for cutting the position is that my office will no longer have to do all the work that we have to do for transit. I did a time study ... public transit comes in once a week and we received the revenue and deposit it for them - it took six minutes. Everything else that I mentioned is performed in the clerk's office." Roscioli claimed transit had been working on forming an authority for approximately a year and that the board had approved them to look into the process further in November. She said in the week following that decision, the board approved a full time position in the clerk's office. "So I don't understand why, now, you're cutting someone in my office," Roscioli said. "My staff and I have been trying to constructively trying to divide the duties of three people between two. I have come to the conclusion I still need three full time employees to continue to provide services to our taxpayers in an appropriate manner." Roscioli went on to say that the general ledger, now moving to the clerk's office, is a "huge responsibility", but was only a "fraction" of the work completed by the treasurer's office. "It (the general ledger) has been held in the treasurer's office in Schoolcraft County for decades," she said. "Due to a position cut in my office, I must give up the general ledger and all the duties associated with it ... my office will close out the month of April 2016 and will not be responsible for any aspects of the general ledger after April 30, 2016." Roscioli added she would also cease to serve as the county's fiscal officer or serve on the county's finance committee as she will "not have time" and that she "has serious concerns about being on a committee that makes financial decisions without discussing the county's financial status". She went on to say the county's revenues are currently "down slightly", and expenditures up significantly, according to her monthly report, and that she expected the commissioners to speak with her about this. "To date, not one has come in or called," Roscioli said. "I find the committee's recommendations and the board's actions perplexing, to say the least. In my opinion, we're going in the wrong direction." Roscioli proceeded to list the additional work she completed, which included grant writing, the county incentive plan, working to upgrade the telephone system in the courthouse, updating fund balance user fees, and initiating a patrol car grant. "All of these were possible because I had adequate staffing," she said. "Taking the general ledger away from my office doesn't bother me as much as you taking away my ability to seek these additional revenues and savings for Schoolcraft County Please be advised that eliminating a position in my office, you force me to give up projects that mean a lot to me because they clearly benefit Schoolcraft County," she added. Roscioli also claimed she had other "projects" she would like to pursue, but cannot do so without the one additional employee. "Be assured I will continue to fulfill my statutory (required) duties to the best of my ability," Roscioli said.
