County Board Meets in Person For First Time in Months

It was not quite business as usual at the Washington County Board meeting last week, but it was closer to normal than it has been since the start of the pandemic.

Most of the board was present in the board room at the courthouse, but visitors participated via teleconference due to restrictions.

After a presentation by county engineer Kiefer Hieman, the board approved a resolution to approve funding for a new culvert on Sugar Creek Road in Ashley Township.

The cost of the project will be split evenly between the county and the Ashley Road District. The county’s share of funding will be $2,439.

Heiman also updated the board on the progress of the bridge on Jimtown Road, which is on schedule to reopen in early July.

Other topics covered in more detail from the meeting in this week’s issue: Board Approves ID Networks CAD Proposal, Zoning Amendment Requests Approved, Roofing Project at County Jail, State’s Attorney Report, County Clerk Report
