County commissioner news

The county commissioners met earlier this week and were faced with a brief agenda requiring their attention.

Sally Niedenthal of the county recorder’s office requested permission to seek a part-time employee for the department she heads. The vacancy was realized as the result of long-time county employee Evelyn Lacy’s retirement. Lacy’s position was filled by then part-time employee Bev Buhler. According to Niedenthal, her budget allows for the part-time employee and the commissioners authorized advertising to fill the position.

In other matters, the commissioners signed a document for the county’s public transportation system “Ride Rush” to receive state reimbursement monies.

County ECDC Director John McCane was next to have the county leaders attention and said the city may again be looking at adding a TIFF district in the county, west of Rushville that will include property around Pioneer Hi-Bred International Inc. in the 2700 block of West U.S. 52. According to McCane currently the business, uses well water and talks have been held on the feasibility of adding sewer and water lines from the city to the facility. McCane continued by saying that city officials are looking at the possibility of a TIFF district similar to the one recently approved near Milroy at the SR 3 and SR 244 intersection. McCane said that no final decision has been made on either issues.

County clerk Deborah Richardson was next to have the floor and said the county election board is looking at the possibility of reducing the number of polling sites for elections. According to Richardson, currently the county utilizes 15 polling sites and is proposing to reduce the number to 13 for the May primary election. The reduction in sites will save the county monies by reducing the number of GOP and Democratic poll site workers from 100 to 65 and make the locations more compliant with state ADA requirements. Richardson said a public meeting on the matter will be held beginning at 7 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 20, in the commissioner Room at the courthouse.
