To reimburse or not to reimburse PDF Print E-mail

    To reimburse or not to reimburse was one of the questions facing the Washington County Commissioners at their regular meeting Nov. 18.
    Lane Freiberger and Kathy Zelivetz, are members of the Property Tax Assessment Board of Appeals, approached the commissioners regarding reimbursement for training in the assessment field.
    Both stated they were under the assumption that they would be reimbursed by the county and both tried to submit a claim through the Washington County Accessors, were denied by Accessor Jason Cockerill.
    “I am getting a mixed version of how the reimbursement policy is handled,” Frieberger said. “I have a claim for $650 in expenses, mostly in mileage and would like a answer.”
    Cockerill said the answer was simple in that there isn't any money in the budget to pay the claim.
    “There is no money at this time,” he said. “The money that was appropriated for training was gone in late March. I did request additional money for this at this years budget hearing but was denied additional monies. I can not approve a claim with no money.”
