MEETING NOTES OF APPOINTMENTS

Dennis Miller, Maumee Valley Planning Organization - Mr. Miller met briefly with the Commissioners to review the CHIP program and its guidelines. He strongly suggested partnering with another county to maximize grant dollar award possibilities.

Lou Ann Wannemacher, County Treasurer - Ms. Wannemacher presented a report of year to date cash for 2013 (pay 2014) real estate taxes. She noted only 4% delinquencies for first half collections and 7% for entire delinquencies (past due and first half 2013). Ms. Wannemacher also reported $154,487.74 in sales tax collected in February for December 2013 sales. This amount is up from January by $21,860.40 and also up from February 2013 by $9,697.61.

Claudia Fickel, County Auditor - Ms. Fickel distributed the General Fund Receipts and Expenses Reports, as well as the Sales Tax Revenue report for the Commissioners’ review. General Fund Receipts in January 2014, were up from December 2013, by $127,250.08; and was up from January 2013 by $78,429.98. Ms. Fickel also reported dog tag sales are down by 16% from last year. She commented the Homestead Exemption applications are due June 2, 2014, adding there are new guidelines to follow. Ms. Fickel discussed the real estate fund and how the valuation has impacted it.

Gene Olwin - Mr. Olwin met briefly with the Commissioners with questions regarding the distribution of the PILOT for the wind farms. The Commissioners were able to answer his questions to his satisfaction and provided him with a breakdown of the PILOT for the wind farms. The Commissioners also thanked Mr. Olwin for his interest.

Kris Gerken and Kim Oliver, Huntington Insurance - Mr. Gerken and Ms. Oliver discussed the upcoming renewal (June 1, 2014) of the County Health Insurance plan. He anticipated Medical Mutual will make an offer by March 31. Huntington will be going out for bids from other carriers on the County’s behalf. In order to do that, Mr. Gerken noted those employees who are currently covered or wish to be on the plan will need to complete medical history questionnaires, which may either be done on paper for each carrier or on Form Fire (on line). He emphasized the security provided by Form Fire, stating they follow all the federal regulations and guidelines. It is imperative that employees complete the questionnaires in a timely matter so that quotes may be secured from other carriers. Cindy Peters will work closely with Mr. Gerken and Ms. Oliver over the next couple of months to make sure the County employees are offered the best coverage for the most affordable cost.
