Nov 2022 County Notes

The County Board of Commissioners adopted the 2023 Budget.  It is a balanced budget and keeping the legacy costs of pension and retiree health fully funded as well as needed funding for maintenance and capital improvements.

Several service providers submitted proposals to build out the broadband project for the county.  These proposals are being evaluated.  The next step will be to apply for the grants that are being prepared by the Federal and State government. 

The County engaged an outside firm to review the fee schedules which have been in place since 2005.  The new fee schedule has increases and some rearrangements.  Needless to say there are some significant adjustments after 17 years.

911 update is doing the finishing adjustments on the local communications systems.  Some of the radios were not able to be upgraded so they needed to be replaced.

Road Commission building project is back on track after a small setback.

Juvenile and Child Care(abused and or neglected) are operating within the budget. 

David W. Pohl, Clinton County Commissioner, District 2
