WARSAW — The regular meeting of the Kosciusko County Solid Waste Management District, Tuesday, July 12, included discussions on employee handbook updates and drainage problems from last month’s record rainfall.
Director Shelly Heckert presented final edits made to the employee handbook for KC Recycling Depot, most of which, she said, pertained to typos and not to the actual content. The word “auditor” was changed to “district auditor,” she added.
Sick days will be counted as paid personal days and floating holidays will include Jan. 1, and July 1.
A renter has expressed interest in the storage unit behind the main building. There are some concerns with drainage of the floor, which the renter offered to fix in exchange for two months rent-free. The board will look into the situation and, if necessary, bring in an engineer to make recommendations.
The back part of the main building also experienced leakage during late June’s storm, which dumped several inches of rain in less than an hour’s time.
The board also reviewed the budget, which Heckert pointed out is set high with the expectation that changes will be made. The board does not decide the final budget, she said, but it will go to the county and they will make final approvals.
The board was set to watch a State Board of Accounts-mandated training video, however because not everybody was able to be present, the video was moved to the start of the August meeting.
The next meeting is set for 11 a.m. Tuesday, Aug. 9, at KC Recycling Depot.
