WARSAW — The Dec. 22 Kosciusko County Commissioner’s meeting covered the community collaboration plan, as well as plans to buy new equipment for police cars.
Barry Andrew, director of community corrections, came before the commissioners to request they sign a community collaboration plan. The plan would help reduce duplication of efforts among organizations in Kosciusko County, specifically between community corrections and the probation department.
“We don’t want to provide the same services, so we created this working document, which will probably change over time,” Andrew said. “As time goes on, and we learn more, we hope to improve the document.” The plan was approved and signed by the commissioners.
County Administrator Ron Robinson made the commissioners aware of plans to buy computers and cameras for the new Kosciusko County Sheriff’s Department vehicles. The equipment will cost $54,000, which is in the budget. The commissioners approved the purchase, which will happen early next year.
In other business:
- County Highway Superintendent Scott Tilden came before the commissioners with the supplemental agreement 2 for bridge 18, which would allow further construction at bridge 18 in Warsaw. The commissioners earlier this week met with Mayor Joe Thallemer to discuss the agreement, and found it worthy of the time and resources necessary to continue construction. They approved the agreement.
- Ed Rock made the commissioners aware of the emergency preparedness plan in case a snow emergency happens. Any yellow/orange colors for the county would be considered a “watch,” and would be the result of a consensus by the commissioners. The color red indicates a “warning,” and would halt all non-emergency travel. A “warning” must be signed by a commissioner.
The next Kosciusko County Commissioner’s meeting will be held at 9 a.m. Tuesday, Jan. 12.
