The commissioners and Mr. Bohn reviewed a uniforms and appearance policy for the Paulding County EMA. Mr. Bohn stated that strengthening the Paulding County LEPC will be a priority for him. He was provided with a current listing of PCLEPC members and contact information. Commissioner Klopfenstein reported the LEPC training exercise last Saturday was very well attended. He noted 86 people registered, in additional to many non-registered participants. Mr. Bohn reported he is working towards getting the EMA vehicle appropriately marked and equipped. The commissioners informed him he will have exclusive use of the vehicle for EMA activities and responsibilities. Commissioner Klopfenstein requested that Mr. Bohn supply the commissioners with a weekly activities report. He also informed Mr. Bohn that the Red Cross of Paulding County has been promised a couple of radios for use during emergency situations. Mr. Bohn will make the necessary contacts to assess their needs.

 

Frank and Marilyn Gudakunst - Mr. and Mrs. Gudakunst met with the commissioners to discuss sink hole issues at the Auglaize Sewer site. They reported the sink hole is located at an old septic system pipe site. The commissioners assured the couple they would contact the county prosecutor for an opinion as to how best to handle the situation.

 

Jim Langham, Paulding Progress - Mr. Langham met briefly with the commissioners for an update on last Saturday's LECP training exercise. Commissioner Klopfenstein reported 86 plus were in attendance.
