Clerk Anne Retcher gave the commissioners an update regarding the asbestos testing. “Brian spoke to Terry from Toledo Environmental who tested the asbestos,” Retcher said, “and he informed him that there are traces of asbestos in the Hearing Room plaster, but not in the paint.”
“The plaster in the Conference Room is a different material with no asbestos. So, you will need to review and discuss on how you want to move forward.”
Commissioner Terry Rummel reported that he spoke with Brent Wilson and “he has a couple new jets coming into the airport and they are looking for hanger space.”
“He is looking for grant money to possibly come up with some way to put up a new hanger out at the airport so that is going be a future topic of discussion for us.”
Commissioners Lew Hilkert and Terry Rummel went into Executive Session, following a recess, with County Prosecutor Katie Zartman to discuss compensation of personnel.
