6 September 2016 Dearborn County Commissioners Meeting Notes

6 September 2016 Dearborn County Commissioners Meeting Notes

Present: Shane McHenry, President, Art Little, and Kevin Lynch

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

Baudendistel read the Title VI statement required at every meeting.

Stimpson Road Agreement- Todd Listerman reported that he and Grieve met with Mr Wayne and his surveyor Rob Seig. They will get an agreement for the amount of fill etc needed. They won’t do that until they get the drawings form Seig. It may be in the fall or into the spring. They will remove this from the agenda until Listerman puts it back on. 

Property in Hardintown- Nicole Daily, Zoning Administrator- They have  couple enforcement cases in Hardintown and involve properties owned by Dearborn County. Vehicles have been parked there by Aztec - an auto repair shop. One of the neighbors has been mowing it and now there are ATVS etc using it. If something were to happen after they start enforcement and it goes to court they wanted the county to know. 
Listerman advised the commissioners that it was created when the tow was created. McHenry said that perhaps the county should sell that property and get it on the tax rolls as the county has no use for the property. Lynch said someone in the audience today might have some interest in that property. Perhaps for redevelopment. Baudendistel said there is a procedure in state statute that outlines the process. Listerman and Baudendistel said there are some pieces on 350 and StatelineRd that can also be sold. Lynch sad they could ask Randall to look into this. The bidding process has to go first per Baudendistel. Then they can deal arm’s length with buyers if no bids come in. S
tate got involved with the auto repair place because of tires and other things not properly stored as well as being off their property. They will allow a time frame before getting rid of vehicles. She will keep commissioners advised.

HIGHWAY DEPT. Todd, Listerman, County Engineer: Design Cost Proposals for Bridges #32 (N Hogan Rd), #72 (St Peters Rd),# 215 ( Brush Fork) and SS ( Small structure)# 121 ( Alan’s Branch Rd) Five companies submitted cost proposals. Lowest bid was Civil Con at $40,325 for #32. FPBH for #72 FPBH got #121 for $40,000 and #72 for $38,000, Land and Water got #215 for $47,250. Approved. 

Home Rule Ordinance - Bulk Form Copies- will have a watermark on recorder’s office copies prohibiting their resale  to be sure they are not resold. Glen Wright  explained how companies were coming in and trying to resell these. The Home Rule Ordinance prohibiting this resale was read by Baudendistel and approved by the commissioners. 

Certification of Local Approval for Heart House - the commissioners are certifying that Heart House is a non-profit. They get an emergency solutions grant every year and need this certification for that. Approved and signed by McHenry. 

ADMINISTRATOR- Terri Randall- Construction Testing Agreement- Court House Annex- $31,500 NTE ( not to exceed) to Alt and Witzig agreement. This was bid out and they were the low bidder per Randall. She said they worked for us before and did a fine job. Approved. 

Region 9 Workforce Board Representative - Recommendation- from the board of commissioners and typically it is someone from the community relate dot this work. One of the members moved away so this is recommendation to the board. Randall proposed Mark Cauble- [NOTE: Is this the husband of the county HR Director Sue Ellen Cauble?] owner of BCE Precision Tool. Art Little didn’t know Mark. Lynch did know him - Mark has worked with Aurora Casket, Maxwell, and teaches at IVY tech. The only negative is that it a small business and its replacing a larger business member from Aurora Casket. Little said but he is a small business owner for 30 years! Mark is passionate about what he is doing per Lynch. Commissioners approved the recommendation. 

Annex work is moving along. Humphrey said the insulation has helped over the windows with noise control per Randall. 

AUDITOR- Gayle Pennington- Claims were approved. 

ATTORNEY- Andy Baudendistel- none

Little- Summer is almost gone- and Todd will be getting ready for winter.
McHenry- had to take more parking spots from employees so they have stepped up and cooperated with the annex construction.

PUBLIC COMMENT- Al Abdon- Greendale Redevelopment Commission. He had sent info on property that they had purchased at a sheriff’s sale for $1600 and the taxes of $134.38 due in 2015. the proper paperwork did not get filed to get the deed for that. Since Indiana Code provides for the Commissioners to certify this for them and transfer that property to Greendale Redevelopment Commission. The tax sale is this Thursday at 10 AM. Commissioners sale is in February. Randall said the only real issue is the precedent this sets for other municipalities that don’t complete their paperwork. Lynch noted that the change in legal counsel for Greendale was an issue. He also has issues with other municipalities trying this also. 
Greendale was going to use it for parking and part of a larger plan. A new business is coming to town that will need parking right there. Their Redevelopment  Commission does not intend to transfer it to the business though. Baudendistel read the resolution that would allow this. [NOTE: HOW did he get the order to prep a resolution etc for something not even on our agenda???] 
Little motioned to approve. Lynch would not 2nd. Motion to deny from Lynch. No 2nd. 
Randall asked if they waited could they bring it back up later after the tax sale? Yes- any time up to the commissioners sale. Randall said they would have to look at this on a case by case basis for others. 
Lynch withdrew his motion and motioned to TABLE till after Thursday sale. TABLED.


Meeting Adjourned at 9:37 M
