MEETING NOTES OF APPOINTMENTS

Randy Shaffer, EMA - Mr. Shaffer questioned the LEPC budget worksheet. He remarked the LEPC normally funds the EMA $8,000 per year to compensate the EMA for administrative paperwork. He also noted a new contract between the Commissioners and the EMA will need to replace the contract between the former EMA Board and the EMA. Mr. Shaffer reported he has been maintaining certain parts of the weather sirens in the county. He expressed the need for a written memo to clarify his role in maintenance of sirens. Mr. Shaffer also reported he has located a siren for Auglaize Township. The January 2012 journal pages still have a few signatures missing. Mr. Shaffer agreed he could have them signed and returned by February 3, 2014. He noted he has spoken with Latty Township Trustees regarding radio operations. The Commissioners reviewed the EMA budget worksheets with Mr. Shaffer. The Commissioners went into executive session with Mr. Shaffer to discuss personnel matters (see resolution above).

 

Travis McGarvey, County Engineer - Mr. McGarvey updated the Commissioners, telling them he plans to trade in a pay loader for a new one. He also has an 1990 excavator he will try to sell. The wind farm PILOT distribution was discussed.

 

Mark Crosby, Joe Thome, and Randy Noggle; Benton Township Trustees - The Commissioners met with the Benton Township Trustees at their request to discuss the EDP wind farm PILOT distribution. Trustee Crosby commented the portion of the PILOT the township receives will fall short of the amount necessary to maintain the roads. The wind farm project left the township seven miles of paved road that will all no doubt need to be chip and sealed within the next five years. The trustees noted that they initially agreed with the method by which the Commissioners distributed the PILOT. However, the township is one entity that has direct costs related to the project, that being repair and maintenance of the roads. They are estimating it will cost them an additional 50% of what they are receiving to just break even. The trustees noted they are trying to be pro-active and think ahead as to what their needs/expenses will be.

 

Brion Hanenkratt - E-911 - Mr. Hanenkratt reported he has been working with Bob Arend on doing an analysis of the radio communication system.
