The person would be cross-trained to provide support in bookkeeping and purchasing in the County Mayor’s Office. This would all be with the goal of providing a positive economic impact on the Carroll County community.

The person should have a Bachelor’s or Associate’s Degree in Accounting, Business Administration, Finance, Public Adiimstration, or relevant field; or equivalent proven grant experience. 

Examples the grant coordinator would have to deal with would include administering two separate grants for Carroll Academy totaling $1,743,884, and administering $5,400,000 in ARPA funds.

The salary and compensation for a year would be $45,865.63.

The total cost is $2,410,000 with no local funds involved.

A resolution will ask commissioners to pledge $50,000 of American Rescue Plan Act Funds for a new roof for the courthouse. Already, $130,000 ARPA has been pledged toward the the $171,215 bid. 

If commissioners pass a resolution to provide $40,000 In ARPA funds to the 80 Carroll County Board of Education employees, each one will receive a bonus of $500 each.

A resolution is on the agenda that will amend the General Fund Budget to decrease the salary of the Civic Center director by $15,000 and increase the airport manager’s salary by that much.
