BE IT RESOLVED, that the Board of County Commissioners does hereby direct the County Auditor to reduce the 2013 Annual Appropriation in the Akkerman Dairy TIF Fund (Fund 146), to-wit;

Mr. Roy Klopfenstein moved to adopt the following resolution:

BE IT RESOLVED, that the Board of County Commissioners does hereby approve an extension of the Title XX County Profile as presented by Corey Walker, Director of the Paulding County Department of Job and Family Services, for the fiscal period July 1, 2013, through September 30, 2014.



Corey Walker, DJFS; Jim Langham, Paulding Progress - Mr. Langham interviewed Mr. Walker regarding the pending purchase of a building to house Paulding County’s DJFS. Mr. Walker noted Paulding County DJFS is currently located in three buildings. The main office is at 303 W. Harrison Street; the ACCENT job center is being leased and is located on Dooley Drive; and 315 W. Harrison is rented and used for supervised home visits and storage. Mr. Walker explained the new building will be large enough to meet all three needs. He explained that the building will not use any direct local dollars and will be county property once the loan is paid. Mr. Walker emphasized the importance of having one site for all services. He is also excited about the handicapped accessibility, stating the hallways and doors will accommodate wheelchairs. Mr. Walker explained the agency’s focus is on assisting clients in finding employment. At their main office, clients can apply for food stamps, Medicaid, and cash assistance. Some entitlements require working. ACCENT job center assist clients with resumes, applications, and work directly with potential employers. By combining the two sites at one place, clients will enjoy a “one-stop-shop.” The county owns the facility at 303 W. Harrison. The Commissioners intent is to utilize it for records’ storage for county offices. Mr. Walker estimates the DJFS will be moved into its building early fall.

Denise Gebers, Paulding Progress - Ms. Gebers met with the Commissioners to discuss the reorganization of the Paulding County Dog Warden and kennel. The Commissioners confirmed that Brandon Shuherk was appointed interim Dog Warden on July 1, until the Sheriff recommended Mark Rassman be appointed as Dog Warden/Deputy on July 6. The Commissioners also noted some clean-up and repair work is being done at the Dog Kennel. Volunteers continue rescue measures for the dogs at the kennel. The Ohio Revised Code delineates Dog Warden duties and responsibilities.
