Commissioners accept 2013 county highway bids

RUSHVILLE — Following this week’s meeting of the Rush County Commissioners, only the Dec. 31 meeting of the panel remains for the calendar year.

Prior to opening a 9:30 a.m. public hearing on county highway bids for 2013, commissioners Tom Barnes, Marvin Cole and Ken Masters dealt with a brief list of items brought before them.

Rush Superior Court Judge Brian Hill and county probation officer Mark Fields were first to have the county leaders’ attention and had a two-fold request.

The first was to renew the county’s contract with Cedar Bridge youth detention facility. For a number of years the county has contracted with the facility to house at-risk youth.

The agreement sets a fixed price for up to 180 days of use of the facility.

Judge Hill and Fields also requested that the county enter an agreement with Richmond Wernle Youth & Family Treatment Center as a second alternative for youth treatment services.

According to Hill, Cedar Bridge does not offer staff-operated psychological studies for patients, and the county is required to pay additional fees.

“It’s a break for us to have an option,” Fields said.

Following a brief discussion, the county leaders asked that the matter be revisited at a future meeting and asked that Fields and Hill seek a contract rather than an agreement with the Richmond facility.

In an unrelated matter, Hill said that the county’s recently formed Community Corrections Board recently met and received partial funding from the state by meeting stated requirements.

“For our first meeting and on such short notice, I was impressed that we had 14 of the 16 members present. We formed a committee to look for a full-time director,” Hill said.

He continued by saying that they hope to have a director hired in early 2013.

Next to speak before the commissioners was county APC Director Kate Meyer,

Meyer requested that the county sign three ordinances related to the county becoming compliant with the American Disabilities Act.

The ordinances were signed by Barnes, Cole and Masters.

In an unrelated matter, Meyer then gained approval for a consulting services for county mapping and APC legal counsel Gilda Caviness, and for consulting services by David Rozier & Associates.

The county leaders next opened bids for contracts to provide supplies during 2013 for the  Rush County Highway Department.

Asphalt Materials submitted the lowest bid to provide liquid asphalt to the county.

The county awarded Ag One the contract to provide unleaded and biodiesel for the county highway. Unleaded gasoline will cost the county $3.263 per gallon and biodiesel will cost $3,439 per gallon during the coming year.

All bids for crushed stone and gravel were accepted and bids for guard rails, posts and piping were continued until a future meeting.
