MEETING NOTES OF APPOINTMENTS

Claudia Fickel, County Auditor - Ms. Fickel updated the ISSG maintenance agreement. She also had questions about credit cards for county entities.

Randy Fisher and Rick Helstrom, ERS; Brion Hanenkratt, E-911 - Various options for emergency radio communication systems were discussed. Mr. Helstrom explained ERS recently installed systems in several counties in Indiana and have had success. He and Mr. Fisher recommended one centralized base receiver with four receivers located at the corners of the county. They stated this system should be good for 10 to 15 years. The radios currently being used will adapt to 6 1/4 banding. Systems can either utilize phone lines or an RF link. Phone lines would have monthly costs and the RF link would require licensure and would need a back-up battery.

Corey Walker, DJFS - Mr. Walker met briefly with the Commissioners to discuss building needs.

Georgia Dyson, Dog Warden; Denise Gebers, Paulding Progress - The Commissioners, during regular session, met with Ms. Dyson to announce her appointment as Dog Warden/Deputy effective July 1, 2013 (see resolution above).

Jason Landers, Paulding County Sheriff - Sheriff Landers met with the Commissioners to discuss requests to provide security for private events taking place in the County. He noted as a county office, he cannot enter into a security agreement with private entities. The Township Trustees of the township where the event is to take place or the County should contract with the Sheriff's Office for services at a pre-determined hourly rate.

Marcia Yeutter, Senior Center - Ms. Yeutter discussed the wide variety of services they provide to senior county residents. She stressed there is no set fee for transportation; however, they accept donations to help defray costs. The Senior Center does not deny services due to inability to pay.
