Commissioner Heimlich called the meeting to order.

Highway Superintendent Mike Kyburz said that they are finished with the paving project. They completed 85 miles of chip-and-seal, and they are going to try to do another 20 miles. Repairs on Bridge #245 will be starting after the paperwork is turned in from Isom Construction.



Area Plan Director Joe Rogers expressed concerns with the Microsoft Access software that they are using for the building permits. He is concerned that it might be reaching its capacity in the near future and this worries him because there isn’t anyone in the IT Department that can recover this information if the software goes down. He researched and found three companies that offer software for his needs, but the cost is around $80k. He said this is a very time consuming task for him and asked if this is something that he should pursue, or put off for three months while the county’s software committee comes up with a plan.


Commissioner Diener said that other counties should’ve already gone through this process where software has integrated with other software. He suggested waiting another three months to see if anything should come up after the committee holds some meetings.



A resident of Apple Knob Drive asked the commissioners if anything has been done with the culverts under the Bedford Bay Bridge since the last discussion on September 8. He complained about one of the culverts being backed-up with debris and logs. Commissioner Heimlich asked the Highway Department to go out there and clean out the culvert.






  • Commissioner Diener made a motion to set the minimum bid for the commissioners’ certificate sale at $50, seconded by Commissioner Burton. Vote: Unanimous




There being no further business to come before the commissioners, their meeting was adjourned.
