Commissioners approved maintenance agreement with Ansonia


GREENVILLE – The Darke County Board of Commissioners met on Thursday afternoon.

Commissioners Matt Aultman, Marshall Combs, and Larry Holmes were present.

The board approved Resolution (R-91-2024). This is a fund advance of $48,150 to cover Maguire Iron pay application #1 for the Gettysburg Water Tower Replacement project. This will be advanced back to the general fund once the revenue is received from the 2022 Gettysburg Critical Infrastructure Grant. 

The board then approved a Vehicle Maintenance Agreement with the Village of Ansonia. 

“We had two old sheriff cruisers that we were going to take out of service and replaced with new service vehicles that we purchased last year,” Commissioner Matt Aultman said. When we got them to the point of refurbishment and usability and were able to donate them to the Village of Ansonia for use, this agreement was presented to the Village of Ansonia. They saw fit to use us for the maintenance of the sheriff vehicle.”

The board also approved a request for proposal and notification of award with CSL Contracting LLC, Candy Lammers, for the PY2023 Lead Safe Ohio program. The county intends to enter a contract with CSL Contracting for Administration Services of the Lead Safe Ohio Program, including Lead-Based Paint Hazard Evaluation and Compliance Services.

The board then approved Resolution (R-92-2024), which increases Revenue and appropriations. A new grant, the 2023 Arcanum Critical Infrastructure Grant, was received, increasing both revenue and appropriations by $2,115,000. 

The board also approved Resolution (R-93-2024). This resolution declares eight county vehicles junk due to their end-of-life cycle, mileage, and needed repairs. Six of the vehicles were a 2015 Ford Explorer police utility, one was a 2016 Ford Explorer police utility, and one was a 2017 Ford Explorer police utility.
