Commissioners receive annual Farm Bureau report

The Rush County Commissioners met Monday and were faced with a brief agenda.

Steve Ariens presented the trio of Bruce Levi, Mark Bacon and Ken Masters the annual Farm Bureau Governmental Statistical Report, outlining the cost of county government during 2012.

In other matters, the county leaders approved new road signage to be placed in the rural community of Mays. According to county highway superintendent Jerry Sitton, a stop sign will be placed at the intersection of Benner and South Street near Mays Elementary School.

County Solid Waste Director Carole Yeend reported that during the recent tox-away event held Saturday at the Smiley Avenue reclamation center, 60 county residents participated. According to Yeend, the number represented a marked increase from recent months.

Rush County Auditor Mary Ann Beard said that she received emergency run reports for August from the county’s four ambulance services. During the previous month Rush Memorial Ambulance responded to 80 medical calls, Raleigh eight, Carthage 11 and Anderson Township (Milroy) responded to four calls for assistance.

Currently, a dual dispatch system is in place for ATVFD with RMH being dispatched to the Milroy area when medical needs arise.

In a final matter, Rush County Sheriff Jeff Sherwood said that the inmate population at the Rush County Jail has remained relatively unchanged in recent weeks with the facility housing 33 individuals.

“Currently, we have 33 inmates being housed. Four have been sentenced and six are females. Overall, the inmate count is pretty good and at a level we can live with,” Sherwood said.
