MEETING NOTES OF APPOINTMENTS

Jim Langham, Paulding Progress - The topic of discussion today was the dangerous intersections along the new US 24. Commissioner Pieper noted Eric Pfenney and Kirk Slusher of the Ohio Department of Transportation, the Paulding County Sheriff, Paulding County EMA director, and others have discussed the intersections at length, trying to determine what may be the cause of the numerous accidents where county roads cross the highway. Every intersection is adequately marked with the proper stop signage; however, the accidents have not necessarily occurred at the stop sign, but in the median area. It was finally deducted that maybe the lines on the roadway need to be broken where the road widens to allow for a left turn lane. This may help eliminate some confusion as to where to stop in the median of the roadway to allow adequate clearance for through traffic.

 

Jeff and Cassie Hollis, All-Trades Historical Restoration - Mr. Hollis updated the Commissioners on the work they are doing to the flat roofs above the four main entrances to the Courthouse. He also reported working on the Kiwanis building and the Paulding County Carnegie Library. Ms. Hollis had some before and after pictures of some of their projects.
