We have also been in constant close communication with Intralot regarding the conversion, and we are working on closing the loop on a few outstanding items.

There is an initiative drive in progress by the Save Idaho Horse Racing groupto return instant horse racing machines to the race tracks. They have until April 30 to get signatures to qualify this for the November ballot.

Director Anderson reminded the Commission that selecting a Vice Chairman would be a good thing to do and suggested it would be on the May meeting agenda for a vote.

4. Kia Souls – Request for Approval to Purchase

We have gone out to bid on for four replacement vehicles for our sales force and sent it out to five Kia dealers, with only one response from Kendall Kia in Nampa. They provided us a great bid, all under MSRP, and we are looking for Commission approval to move forward with the purchase.

Commissioner Michael moved to approve the purchase of the Kias. Commissioner Kerrick seconded the motion. The vote was unanimous for approval.

5. Quarterly Current Sales Report

The Quarterly Current Sales Report is entered into the minutes as an attachment.

Deputy Director French explained the Package Delivery RFP she is working on and has been submitted to the AGs office for review.

She asked for Commission approval to publish the RFP once it has been finalized.

We have completed the RFP process for the Warehouse lease and given what we received and what is available in and around Boise, we will be staying where we are and just working on making our current space more efficient. The pricing of other available space was very high and there wasn’t much to choose from.
