Lou Ann Wannemacher, County Treasurer - Ms. Wannemacher met with the Commissioners to present depository agreements for signatures. She reported she has been researching various credit card options for her office. She also noted that Build-A-Computer will be supplying the computers in her office. The computers in the Treasurer’s Office are all fairly old and need replacing.


Jim Langham, Paulding Progress - The subject for discussion this morning was the County’s recent purchase of the parking lot east of Hometown Pizza. The lot was formerly owned by Stykemain’s and the Commissioners agreed it would be in the County’s best interest to purchase it for employee parking. By providing alternate parking for County employees, the parking spaces around the Courthouse will open up for downtown business patrons. It will also make easier access for the general public with business to conduct in the Courthouse. The Commissioners intend on making some improvements to the parking lot next year. They have already spoken to the Engineer’s Office regarding drainage and leveling. Next spring/summer, they hope to be able to pave and stripe the lot. Hopefully, alternative parking for Courthouse and county employees will entice downtown business by having available parking around the square.


Marsha Yeutter, Paulding County Senior Center - Ms. Yeutter presented payroll for signatures and also a contract for her on-staff nurse. She reported the center’s annual car show was a success, netting $2,000. Ms. Yeutter and her staff members will be working hard this week to prepare for Flat Rock Creek Festival this weekend.


Randy Shaffer, EMA Director - Commissioner Klopfenstein reviewed the list of reports and grant paperwork provided by Mr. Shaffer. The mileage report was reviewed. Mr. Shaffer reported an average of 82 miles per day on the EMA vehicle from August 6 through September 16. He also noted he has distributed first aid kits to various county offices. Mr. Shaffer’s next scheduled meeting is on September 25 at 9:15 a.m.


Corey Walker, Paulding County Department of Job and Family Services; and Joe Burkard, County Prosecutor - Mr. Walker reviewed the revised Defiance/Paulding County Joint Department of Job and Family Services agreement. Commissioner Klopfenstein and Mr. Walker will be meeting with the Defiance County Commissioners this afternoon at 2:30 to finalize and sign the agreement.


Claudia Fickel, County Auditor - Ms. Fickel presented a letter she received from the State Auditor regarding IPA audit for 2013, to be done in 2014.
