APC MEETING DECEMBER 21, 2009

The White County Area Plan Commission met Monday, December 21, 2009, at 7:30 p.m. in the Commissioners’ Meeting Room, Second Floor, County Building, Monticello, Indiana to vote to appoint an attorney.

Members attending were: Charles Anderson, David Scott, James Mann Jr., Donald W. Ward, Richard Lynn, Dennis Sterrett, Gerald Cartmell, David Rosenbarger and Mike Smolek. Also attending were Executive Director Joe Rogers and Secretary Gayle Rogers.

 

Visitors attending were: C David Hall and Charles R Mellon.

The meeting was called to order by President Charlie Anderson who opened the meeting by stating that the Executive Session held on December 14, 2009 was to come to a consensus as to the majority choice for an attorney. Tonight’s meetings were to hold a public session to officially vote for that choice for appointment. He went on to explain that the Area Board of Zoning Appeals held their meeting to vote in the majority choice, however, they voted in a different candidate by a 3 – 1 vote. This poses a dilemma that has never been faced by the boards to anyone’s knowledge. Some discussion ensued during which Joe Rogers read from Indiana State Statute regarding the appointing of an attorney being an Area Plan Commission responsibility and also read a brief statement that current attorney, Kevin Riley emailed regarding the appointment of two attorneys. Gerald Cartmell stated that he had previously spoken with a County Council member (Bruce) who, according to Gerald, said the designated attorney funds would simply be split between the two attorneys in such an instance. In light of the situation, President Anderson opened the floor to nominations for attorney appointment. Dave Rosenbarger nominated Rob Little with a second by Gerald Cartmell. Ben Diener was nominated by Don Ward and seconded by Richard Lynn. Dave Scott moved to close the nominations with a second by Dave Rosenbarger. Ballots were distributed. Nine votes were cast. Result: 7 Diener; 2 Little

The appointment for the attorney for the APC will go to Ben Diener.

With no further business to discuss, Don Ward motioned to adjourn. Dave Rosenbarger

seconded. President Anderson adjourned the meeting at 8:10 pm.
