Commissioners approve polling site consolidation

The trio of county commissioners, Mark Bacon, Bruce Levi and Ken Masters, met earlier this week and voted unanimously to a request from county clerk Debbie Richardson to reduce the number of voting polling locations in the county.

According to Richardson, although publicized, no one attended the public meeting on the matter and her office received no complaints or questions regarding the consolidation. As a result of Monday’s action, nine polling sites will handle the Rush County’s 17 voter precincts in future elections, beginning with the May 6 Primary.

In other matters, speaking on behalf of the Anderson Township Volunteer Fire Department and EMS, Becky Puckett said the Milroy ambulance service responded to 12 runs during the month and that the medical service is looking forward to making additional improvements. Commissioner Mark Bacon added that he has attended a couple meetings with the volunteers and is pleased at the efforts during the past weeks.

“I feel that the ambulance service is heading in the right direction. They are looking to add additional personnel and have made other positive changes,” Bacon said.

County highway superintendent Jerry Sitton said that his department is in the process of replacing a nearly 11-year vehicle and that the employee vacancy, recently advertised, has been filled.

Sheriff Jeff Sherwood said the Rush County Jail currently houses 40 inmates on various charges. Currently of those incarcerated, none have been sentenced and six inmates have no bond being set regarding their charges.

In a final matter, the county leaders made their final appointment for 2014 and announced Marc Houston as their appointment to the county wage board.
