2003 grant monies to be returned

Commissioners begin to close out 2012 business

RUSHVILLE — Two of the three county commissioners, Marvin Cole and Ken Masters, met Tuesday and began the process of closing out 2012 business by setting the Nov. 19 meeting as the date to make the majority of their annual appointments to various boards.

The pair also gave permission to Velma Buening, representing the Fitness Club of Rush County, to use the county courthouse as an alternative location for walkers to use in the event of inclement weather. Walkers will be allowed access to the building between the hours of 7 to 8 a.m. and 4 to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. The courthouse will also be open at 5:30 p.m. Oct. 23 for tours with county surveyor Marvin Rees volunteering his time to be tour guide and make sure the building is closed and secured following the one-day event.

In other matters, chief deputy Duane Raab of the Rush County Sheriff’s Department said the jail population is on the increase, with 46 inmates currently housed at the Rush County Jail.

County EMA Director Chuck Kemker was next to speak and said the county must return $16,239 to the state as a result of unspent grant monies from 2003.

“I’m the bearer of bad new, we have to return this money with interest,” Kemker said.

The total amount of interest was not announced; however, auditor Deborah Adams said she believed it to be in the neighborhood of $3,000.

In a final matter, county IT Randy Herbert received permission to exchange computer servers at the courthouse. According to Herbert, the current server and the 2003 programing being used is outdated and in need of upgrades.
