Present were Chairman Dan Kling, Commissioners Jack Andersen and James Krotz and County Clerk Sindy Coburn.
Building Superintendent Dwaine Sones reported that one of the three hanging heaters in the County maintenance shop in Rushville had expired. The Commissioners approved Sones’ plan to install a single 30-foot, hanging tube heater in the shop. The two working heaters are to be removed from the shop; one will be installed in the Gordon shop and the other kept in storage as a spare. The Commissioners also instructed Sones to proceed with the renovation of the first-floor courthouse restroom by installing ADA compliant fixtures and new tile on the floor and walls.
Road Superintendent Tom Kuester met with the Board to set a date for the hearing of protests on roadside mowing charges.
