    The estimated cost consists of the following components: For county board meetings - $402,042, including employee benefit costs; for RESAs - $20,950 and for MCVCs - $8,200. In addition, the estimated increase in cost for paying board members to attend state board approved training for up to six days a year is an additional $359,580.
