They stood in recess from 9:30-10:02 when they went into Executive Session, to discuss Employment and Compensation of Personnel. At 10:31 they came out, with no action taken, and went into a second Executive Session, asking Tom Kochert to go with them, for the discussion of Employment of Personnel.  The second Executive Session ended at 11:11 also with no action taken.

In other business they approved:

  • Resolution 162 – H2Ohio Standard Grant Agreement for Kunkle Sanitary Sewer and Wastewater Treatment Project.
  • Resolution 163 – Approving inspection agreement on behalf of Hillside Country Living

Before adjourning there was a short discussion about the legal points of when paperwork gets signed, with agreement that it just matters that they sign everything that has been approved. There had been some confusion with the new way of meeting and how to get things signed, but they are on track.
