The Darke County Board of Commissioners met on Tuesday afternoon to discuss the demolition of the Gettysburg School project and the Wastewater Treatment Plant Sanitary Sewer project.

Commissioners Matt Aultman and Marshall Combs were present.

The board approved Resolution (R-311-2023), four transfers of Appropriations. The first is $2,000 for Darke County Adult Probation to cover other payroll. The second is $10,000 for the Darke County Engineer to replenish the vehicle maintenance line. The third is $3,000 for the Darke County Recorder for desks and chairs in office and public use. The last is $300 for the Darke County Sewer to pay electric bills.

The board then approved Resolution (R-312-2023). This is a fund advance back for the 2023 Airport Runway Rehab Grant. This advances $307,11.70 back to the General Fund.

The board also approved Resolution (R-313-2023). This is a fund advance back for the Darke County Solid Waste fund. This advances $12,200 back to the General Fund.

The board then approved a Notice of Award to Advanced Excavating and Demolition, LLC dba Advanced Demolition Services for the Darke County Brownfield and Remediation Program, Partial Demolition of Former Gettysburg School Project. The contract price is $108,750.

The board also approved a construction contract and notice to proceed. This is with Bleil Excavating and Farm Drainage for Project 6, 2 properties 9879 Beam Rd. Ansonia and 11531 St. Rt. 118 Ansonia. The contract is not to exceed $14,355 and will commence to run on October 3, 2023. The project shall be completed no later than October 31, 20203.

The board then approved a change order from Durst Brothers Excavating for the Wastewater Treatment Plant Sanitary Sewer project in Gettysburg. This change order is $2757.95 for waterline materials to repair an unmarked waterline hit during construction and the addition of site restoration, grading, seeding, and straw. This increased the total contract sum to $45,032.95.

At the end of the meeting, Commissioner Marshall Combs gave an update regarding the citizen concern from Thursday’s meeting about recycling.

“Hearing from Rumpke and Darke County Solid Waste, there is a number on plastics inside the triangle symbol,” Commissioner Combs said. “Those numbers all represent different places the recyclables go, and different companies or places purchase certain numbers only when recycling that material for a certain project or something that year. So the gentleman that dropped off some plastic, that number is not something that is being bought right now by really any company in the area.”
