Guests: Pamela Meagher; Julie Parker

Old Business - None
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
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.
[to top of second column]
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
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
