This 15th day of November, 2017, the Board of County Commissioners met in regular session with the following members present: Tony Zartman, Mark Holtsberry, and Nola Ginter, Clerk. Absent: Roy Klopfenstein.



MEETING NOTES OF APPOINTMENTS

Tiffany Beckman, Common Pleas Judge, reviewed the current activity in Common Pleas Court. She reported criminal cases are up from last year. Beckman noted she attended the Vision meeting in Paulding last night along with 35-40 other interested residents. She said the meeting was very productive. The meeting held in Oakwood on Monday also was well attended with 12-15 present. Judge Beckman was encouraged with the numbers at both meetings.



Pam Miller, Board of DD, met with the commissioners at their request. She introduced herself and explained her appointment began when she filled the unexpired term of a previous board member. In January 2014, she was appointed to a four-year term, which expires Dec. 31. She is up for re-appointment with her term beginning Jan. 1, 2018. Miller is currently serving as the president of the board. She has three children with special needs. Miller said serving on the board has been a very pleasant experience and she has learned so much. She stated the biggest stumbling block in Paulding County is state assistance to provide public transportation for the DD population. The board continues to focus on extending services to those on the “waiting” list. Miller noted waivers can be obtained as long as there are match dollars, adding she is so thankful the DD levy passed. Pam is happy to serve on the board and invited the commissioners to attend its monthly meetings held on the 3rd Thursday of each month at 4 p.m. The commissioners thanked Miller for her service and dedication to the Paulding County Board of DD.



Dog Warden Jared Renollet requested permission to attend the Dog Warden Association winter conference in Columbus Dec. 11-12. The commissioners advised him to clear it with Sheriff Landers. Renollet then updated the commissioners on the activity at the dog kennel.
