Old Business - None

New Business

Concealed Carry signs - Mrs. Schumacher discussed the need for signs prohibiting the possession of concealed weapons on County property, including the Animal Control premises. Mrs. Meagher indicated signs for County buildings were ordered earlier in the week and research is in process for signs for the County-owned parks.

Assistant Warden position - With the upcoming retirement of Maurice Tierney, Mr. Bateman reported there were more than twenty applicants for the position. One candidate’s qualifications were far superior. The committee agreed that a recommendation can be made to the full Board to hire that candidate. Mr. Bateman is hoping the candidate can begin employment by May 1st, in order to cross-train with Mr. Tierney before his departure. As long as the candidate’s performance is satisfactory during the training period, she would be appointed Assistant Warden at the time of Mr. Tierney’s retirement.

Administrator/Warden’s report - Mrs. Parker discussed a possible micro-chip clinic for the public this summer.

Mr. Bateman discussed a recent report of a barking dog in Emden. Animal Control did not respond, since Emden did not enter into a contract for services and would have been responsible for a $200 charge. He encouraged the caller to contact local trustees and encourage participation with the County so all calls can be responded to in the future. Nothing further to report.

Budget - No concerns.

A motion was made by Mrs. Schumacher, seconded by Mr. Hepler, to pay the bills as presented for payment. Motion passed.

A motion was made by Mr. Anderson, seconded by Mr. Hepler, to adjourn the meeting. Motion passed. Meeting adjourned at 7:02 pm.
