Ms. Fickel stated, to her knowledge, the appraiser always has identification with her; but said she would address the issue with the appraiser.

He also would like to have luminaries placed on the sidewalks. Mr. Walker updated the Commissioners on the status of the Dooley Drive office. There are a few more items left to complete. Mr. Walker anticipates the office will be able to relocate within the next 2-3 weeks. He also reported there are three children at the Jacob Eaton Children’s Home.

 

Judge Suzanne Rister, County Court - Judge Rister was excited to announce County Court is hosting a free Bureau of Motor Vehicles program to review traffic laws and other updates. She reported there will be two sessions and there are 25 people signed up for each session. Ms. Rister noted her new employee is working out well. She works 35 hours a week and is considered full time for benefit purposes. Judge Rister continues to work on a full time judgeship for County Court. She reported her Court and Probation office are both very busy. Ms. Rister praised the new K-9 officer, saying the dog is doing a great job.

 

Marsha Yeutter, Senior Center - Ms. Yeutter reported having an ice dam in the valley of the metal roof of the Senior Center. She noted there were some wet spots on the ceiling.
