4 April 2006 Dearborn County Commissioner Meeting Notes

4 April 2006 Dearborn County Commissioner Meeting Notes

Present: Benning, President, Hughes, and Fox
Also present: Pickens, Auditor, Ewbank, Attorney, and Messmore, Administrator.

1. Margaret Minzner GIS Coordinator presented the Earth Data International contract for signature. Money is already available in account for this. They will provide 2 ft instead of 4 ft contours. Commissioners voted to approve.

2. Brad Carmen and fiancée Barb requested that the county maintain Railroad Lane in Sparta Township as it always had been. Listerman stated that county files show it was never on road inventory. They changed the sign from green to brown to reflect this status as a private lane. Issues with RR ROW and potentially inaccessible lot at the end will be researched. Carmen willing to give ROW to widen to county specs for a gravel road. House existed since 1884. Tabled until research is completed.

3. Hrezo Engineering presented YES Home for final approval on this final phase of work. Commissioners signed it.

4. Woodfill not present for Rump Road. (This was to be heard at 2nd meeting in April per his request at March meeting)

5. Standard EMS Contract with Dillsboro signed.

6. Messmore noted that Bright Meadows Park would be the site for Earth Day April 22.
OKI Contract was already signed off last meeting- OKI will be here June 6th to explain their role in the county as MPO also.
There were no irregularities in files regarding the discharged employee at Hwy Dept. Commissioners voted to accept Listerman’s recommendation to discharge the employee.

7. Ewbank reported that the parking ordinance would be published for 1 month before being effective. The building Ordinance update has not been rejected in INDY so he assumes it will pass thru.

8. There has been a civil rights lawsuit filed in federal court in Ohio naming the sheriff, the jail, various rangers, and HVL. The compliant alleges the person should not have been arrested in the first place. Ewbank noted that the sheriff was only named nominally.

9. Hughes wants GIS to be its own dept. and the commissioners named him to work with Mitter and Council to get it set up. Pickens warned then to be certain to get a job description set up properly to cover payroll issues. GIS is to be a stand-alone dept. under the commissioners.

Meeting adjourned at 6:40 PM
