The Merced County Board of Supervisors will consider acquiring three land parcels for the Atwater-Merced Expressway project at Tuesday's meeting, an item that was carried over from the Nov. 20 meeting.

The supervisors also will discuss authorizing a contract with the Merced County Association of Governments for the project's reimbursement agreement.

Among other budget transfers, they will consider a $5 million transfer for increased revenue based on payments received from CSAC Excess Insurance Authority -- which provides risk management services to the county.

The reimbursement is for the 2006 flood-claim settlement.

Under consideration will be the authorization of $16,500 from District 4's discretionary funds and $1,000 from District 1's funds for community projects.

The supervisors will hear comments during a public hearing to consider amending the fee schedule for Mental Health Serv- ices.

James Fincher will be reappointed as county counsel, pending the approval of his employment agreement.

The Board of Supervisors meeting will be held at 10 a.m. in the board chambers on the third floor of the Merced County Administration Building, 2222 M St. in Merced.
