MEETING NOTES OF APPOINTMENTS

Sandy Kessler and Austin Serna, MVPO – Kessler introduced Serna as a new planner with Maumee Valley Planning Organization. Kessler presented the CDBG PY2019 Target of Opportunity Downtown Buildings Program Pre-Application for the Village of Paulding. The village is interested in submitting an application for the downtown revitalization program. The Community Improvement Corporation purchased three buildings located at 103 South Main, 211 and 215 Perry Streets in Paulding that are in need of improvements. The CDBG requested amount is $250,000. (See resolution below.) Kessler explained the pre-application will be submitted this morning. Once the state finalizes, we will have a public hearing then submit the full application. Under CDBG the county approves and the commissioners are the owners of these projects.



County Engineer Travis McGarvey and the commissioners discussed the workload in the tax map office. McGarvey also informed the commissioners of completed road work projects on Roads 107, 94 and 49. He also explained the Broughton bridge is on our three-year plan. It doesn’t have structural problems, but it is on the three-year plan. We did finish a bridge in Harrison township, that’s open now.



Guy Dasher met with the commissioners to discuss Flat Rock Festival and a thank you for what you do for Flat Rock. We will run the non-profit status process to make Flat Rock our own organization. Wreaths Across America will be at Flat Rock this year. They will have some things for veterans and they will have a space. The dates for Flat Rock Creek Festival are September 20-22. Dasher asked the commissioners about property lines at the fairgrounds and the bottom grounds. The commissioners were in agreement that the obstacles need to be leveled off so that there are not cesspools and to re-use the dirt that was there for the following year so that more dirt does not have to be hauled in. The board’s goal is to reduce liability for the county.



County Treasurer Lou Wannemacher met with the commissioners to discuss the outside checking accounts that are under the Treasurer’s name.
