19 July 2016 Dearborn County Commissioners Meeting Notes

19 July 2016 Dearborn County Commissioners Meeting Notes

Present:  Art Little, and Kevin Lynch, acting chairman
ABSENT: Shane McHenry

Also present: Gayle Pennington, Auditor, Andy Baudendistel, Attorney, and Terri Randall, Administrator

Attorney read the Title VI statement as usual.

Cincinnati Bell Internet Proposal- Jared Teaney - changes made as the attorney advised last meeting. Just need a start date to be set. Commissioners approved the agreement and signed it.


ADMINISTRATOR- Terri Randall- nothing to discuss

AUDITOR- Gayle Pennington Claims and June 21 and July 5 minutes approved. The 2017 holiday calendar was presented as the judges like to have it in advance. In a non-election year the employees get two floating holidays. Some of them wanted to designate July 3rd- but the commissioners were not in favor. Approved the calendar for 2017

ATTORNEY- Andy Baudendistel- Interlocal for dispatching for St. Leon is approved for $1,250 and will be renewed in 2017 for about twice that. 

COMMISSIONER COMMENTS- Little- they found a well under Stateline Road by Skyline and will pour a cap and seal it. Bright Festival will be accessible by Salt Fork now too. 

Lynch- congratulated Little on his interview on Mike Pence- excited that he will be VP. Glad that EMS has stepped up out in Bright and DCH doing more EMS training.
OKI luncheon is Aug 4th and Pence is keynote speaker as advertised- and so far they aren’t sure of he’ll make it after the convention. Pretty exciting if he comes and has back up plans in case Pence can’t make it. Probably about 500 people to attend at the Event center. More congressmen and senators coming. The job fair is the same day with Luke Messer across the street at IVY Tech. First hour is for veterans only like last year. Last year they had about 12 that were hired on the spot and three time that many hired in a few weeks after the job fair. IVY Tech and Work One collaborate on this. Lynch said that the quality of the applicants pleased the employers looking to hire. 

PUBLIC COMMENT- Calvitto gave a litter patrol update. Little said he thought the litter signs were making a difference. Lynch said that he’s seen people picking up trash along the roads also. 
Baudendistel said that Cleary’s court is approved as a regional federal treatment court now. Only one of two in the state. 


Meeting Adjourned at 5: 22 PM
