This 7th day of November, 2018, the Board of County Commissioners met in regular session with the following members present: Tony Zartman, Roy Klopfenstein, Mark Holtsberry and Cindy Peters, Clerk,



MEETING NOTES OF APPOINTMENTS



County Prosecutor Joe Burkard discussed the county’s budget for 2019; and tax exempt status for the hospital’s property tax bill.



The commissioners attended a Land Bank Meeting in the conference room in the basement of the courthouse.



County Engineer Travis McGarvey discussed the health insurance policy for the Engineer’s office with the commissioners. McGarvey explained there is a bridge out on Road 82. We are going to set boxes on Friday. We’ll start the Road 179 project next week. They are going to open the dam, then after 2-3 weeks the water level will go down. Roads 191 and 140 (Cooper Road) needs a guardrail, then that will be opened. The county garage will be getting salt delivered next week. The state will continue to inspect the Melrose state culvert on a yearly basis.



At 10:45 a.m., the commissioners left to view contents at the PARC Lane garage on Fairground Drive. Some of the unneeded contents for the county will be listed for sale on Gov.Deals. At the discretion of Deb Guilford, Board of DD superintendent, any remaining contents will be advertised for viewing and sealed bids.



Judy Wells, EMA assistant, and Ed Bohn, EMA director, met with the commissioners to discuss EMA year-end business. Bohn noted that we’re still working on the mitigation plan. He will be working on wrapping up the remaining seven entities between now and the end of year. The hydrant is out of service at the training facility. The fire marshal’s grant opened up Monday to apply for the renewal of user fees for 2019 and any additional radios that they feel they need. I’ve encouraged the fire chiefs to apply for this grant. That’s one benefit that the money is set aside for training and equipment. The Homeland Security grant with the mass casualty trailer was approved. It will be made available for wherever it needs to be. The health department trailer is only used at the fair. EMA will utilize that as a shelter trailer with 50 cots and bedding from the Red Cross. The health department will be paying 50/50 with EMA for the cost of the trailer. It had to be repaired for water damage so we both agreed to share the cost. At the end of the year, Bohn commented he will prepare a report for accomplishments and how to move forward in 2019. There are going to be cuts, from the fall conference. FEMA is preparing for more recovery measures.



Sandy Kessler, MVPO, presented a recommendation for the bid award for the Village of Paulding Phase III Combined Sewer Separation Project (see Resolution below).
