This 19th day of June, 2019, the Board of County Commissioners met in regular session with the following members present: Roy Klopfenstein, Mark Holtsberry and Cindy Peters, Clerk. Absent: Tony Zartman.



MEETING NOTES OF APPOINTMENTS

Jim Stripe, PCBDD superintendent, shared that since the last DD levy was passed, there was a change in the law in 2017. The old language was appropriate at that time. Delaware County did not have the correct wording and had to go back and do the levy a second time. The commissioners were informed of the change in the law and will have the county prosecutor review the language. Stripe also updated the commissioners on the bid from IAP for plumbing and HVAC. The lighting contract apparently has already been approved by the board at the March meeting.



Sheriff Jason Landers met with the commissioners to fill out a survey from the Buckeye State Sheriff’s Association and CCAO regarding a proposal for funding jail improvements in the 2020 State Capital Funding Bill.



Juvenile/Probate Judge Michael Wehrkamp presented the Paulding County Juvenile Court 2018 Annual Report draft copy. He noted that we partnered with Western Buckeye in the past for the attendance officer/school-court liaison and we will not be doing that partnership next year. Between 2017 and 2018, the total number of new cases and cases transferred in, reactivated, or re-designated increased from 315 to 482 – an increase of 53%. The Juvenile Court saw a sharp increase of 61% from 2017 to 2018 in its total number of docket entries from 6,059 to 9,748. Last year we had 3.7 beds per day in juvenile detention center. So far this year, we are at 1.32 beds per day. The Parent Project was possible from a grant from United Way. Juvenile Court received a one-time grant from Tri-County ADAMHS Board in 2018. The purpose of this grant is to provide additional resources to fund community alternatives to detention or incarceration. In late 2018, the court’s probation department began planning programming and alternatives to detention. The Juvenile Detention Alternatives Initiatives (JDAI) Luncheon is on July 31 at the Black Swamp Nature Center.
