This 18th day of March, 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

County Auditor Claudia Fickel informed the commissioners she needs more funding for a part-time position through the end of the year. There has been an increase in duties in her office that require additional help, including an increase in vouchers and an increase in payroll. We have more grants, more paperwork and more people. The real estate side continues to be busy with conservation contracts.



Dog Warden Skyler Maassel met with the commissioners to update them on where he’s at with taking over the dog warden position recently. There is some additional training that is needed in order to fulfill the licensing requirements. Maassel noted he and the assistant dog warden are going down the list at the kennel, tracking those that have not yet received their dogs’ tags. There were about 700 people on that list that haven’t purchased tags. Maassel informed the commissioners that those people will be required to purchase a tag and pay the late penalty. There will not be any exceptions for the late fees. On a lighter note, Maassel also added there were four different adoptions with a fifth one pending. He noted that we’ve also recently rescued five or six dogs back to their owners.
