ACTION OF EXECUTIVE SESSION: The Commissioners certified that they only discussed what was advertised and the attorney is to file a motion on their behalf.


Change Orders Chris Grabowski, Assistant Construction Manager- Maxwell Construction

They also fixed a clean out in the sewer lines buried 15 ft underground. McHenry thanked the staff for their patience for a couple days as they cleaned it out and repaired it. 

Text Amendments in Zoning Ordinance - P&Z Director, Mark McCormack:
Article 24 section 2430, Driveway Design- Ordinance to amend Article 24- a lot of this was imported from Boone County and text was cleaned up to make it clearer and allow for certain types of variance requests under certain conditions. No public comment. The commissioners approved the amendments and signed the ordinance to Amend Article 24 of the  Zoning Ordinance. 
McHenry said he was going on record that this was the shortest Planning and Zoning decision ever.

HIGHWAY DEPT. Todd, Listerman, County Engineer- Randall presented in Listerman’s vacation absence - Railroad  CSX agreement for Bridge 24 Cold Springs Road- Baudendistel has reviewed. Road is our responsibility and RR tracks are the railroads responsibility. $32,081 is reimbursed. Approved.
Contract for Construction Inspection for Bridge 24 Cold Springs Road- Commissioners approved contract with Certified Engineering Inc. that Baudendistel had reviewed. It’s a NTE (not to exceed) $125,000 amount. 

Water Rescue- Bill Black Jr.- Vehicle Transfers- Agreement and Ordinance to transfer personal property to water rescue- Ordinance 2017-004 per Baudendistel. Since they were incorporated - they are a separate entity. They had vehicles in water rescue that were titled to Commissioners or EMA. This tarsiers them all to Water Rescue so they can be insured etc by Water Rescue appropriately. Water rescue is a 501c3. There are 12 vehicles and 2 need titles created as the originals were not found. Mostly this cleans things up legally. These  were bought thru different grant processes in the past. McHenry said there were multiple eyes on this to be sure the grant specifications were ok with this. Commissioners approved with no public wanting to comment. Baudendistel also had an agreement for McHenry and Black, Jr. to transfer the vehicles.
There is a memorandum of understanding with EMA and Water Rescue regarding one vehicle for EMA to use also. 

ADMINISTRATOR- Terri Randall- SunmanDearborn Schools #19 and LHS #21 in the tristate schools. Top communities were rated- Lawrenceburg city came in #29 in the tristate area. Batesville Products had received an award - one of 6 companies in manufacturing excellence for innovation. Williams was pictured- children's walkers on the legs ended a new product to modify the walkers and also with color choices. They were able to retain employees with this increased production. 
UCBank was also recognized as one of the great places to work in the region- per Lynch.

AUDITOR- Gayle Pennington- Claims and Minutes from May 16th meeting were approved. Settlement is done and we are first in the state again.

COMMISSIONER COMMENTS- Lynch- today is June 6th- D-Day. Thanking all the vets who continue to remind us. I will miss the next meeting on a well-deserved vacation. Can be reached via phone.

Little- had breakfast with a D-Day vet- who was in the 2nd wave. Appreciate all they had to do.

McHenry- attended Memorial Day ceremony at Riverview with Bill Ewbank speaking there. Took one of his kids to help put things in perspective for our kids. Some of our vets have life-long effects of different things form etc wars. He will also be out of town for our next meeting. The next meeting will be a pay claims only meeting with he and Art at some other date.  He is sure everyone is aware of Terri’s news. ( She is leaving to become head of One Dearborn EDI) He thinks what the board has accomplished as a team. His favorite word is team. He thinks the three of them have different skill sets and Terri complemented that helping to push things forward Times have not been always easy. Putting things out there- you sometimes meet with some resistance. We will continue our relationship with this.
