MEETING NOTES OF APPOINTMENTS

Putnam County Commissioner Vince Schroeder met with the commissioners for a Joint Ditch Assessment. There was not a quorum, so the meeting will be rescheduled.

 

County Treasurer Lou Ann Wannemacher presented financial reports for period ending May 31, 2014. Included in this report package are: Total Dollars Invested, Investment Interest with monthly totals, and Permissive Sales and Use Tax. The amount of interest earned is 65% of the total estimated for the year. June sales tax was up $12,201.61 from May. Motor Vehicle Tax payments continue to be strong. Ms. Wannemacher reported the tax bills were mailed last week and several people have already come in to pay.

 

County Auditor Claudia Fickel met with the commissioners to review the June 18, 2014, Sales Tax Revenue, the General Fund Receipts, and the General Fund Expenses reports. She also provided the Summary Fund Report for the commissioners’ review. Sales tax for the first half of 2014 was up by $286.20 from the same time period in 2013 and up from the four-year average by $58,447.42. The General Fund Receipts for May were up significantly from April, due to several pay-ins occurring in May and not April. General Fund Expenses were down from the month of April. The cash balance in the General Fund is up from last year on this date. Ms. Fickel had an agreement from Plattenburg (state audit subcontractor) for the commissioners’ signature.

They also expressed their appreciation for Mr. Timm’s involvement in the recent 4-H livestock auction/sale at the Paulding County Fair. Mr. Timm discussed the demolition of a couple of the livestock buildings at the fairgrounds and stated the work would begin after the Flat Rock Creek Festival this fall. The county parking lot project contract with Ward Construction will be completed this week and sent to the Paulding Village office for their attorney’s approval.
