Commissioners approve Animal Shelter Certificate of Appointment

Darke County Commissioners

GREENVILLE – The Darke County Board of Commissioners met Tuesday afternoon. 

Commissioners Matt Aultman and Larry Holmes were present. Commissioner Marshall Combs was absent due to prior obligations. 

Commissioners approved one sealed bid for review for the Village of Palestine—North Main St. Sidewalk Replacement Phase II (PY2022 CDBG Grant). The bid was received from LJ DeWeese Construction for $67,331, while the engineer’s estimate was $49,285. 

A revised agreement between Darke County Board of Commissioners and M&T Excavating, LLC was also approved. 

The previously approved agreement’s CDBG Funding was incorrect. It read $500,000 instead of the correct $485,000. The funds still total $752,944, but they have been split between Darke County Commissioners CDBG Funds $485,000 and Village of Arcanum $267,944. 

Commissioners approved a Certificate of Appointment for the Darke County Animal Shelter. Mark Johnson, Animal Control Officer, will begin his work with the Darke County Animal Shelter effective June 17, 2024. 

Commissioner Holmes reported that he received information that Shred Day at the fairgrounds was very successful. There were over 12,000 pounds of shredded material, and 172 vehicles had gone through. 

Commissioner Holmes will also attend his first meeting with the Miami Valley Community Action Partnership (MVCAP) Board of Trustees, which he was recently appointed to, on Tuesday, June 18.
