CADIZ - Harrison County Commissioner Barbara Pincola asked county residents and title searchers to "pardon our dust," during Wednesday's meeting.
Pincola stated construction adding two new handicapped accessible restrooms is under way at the courthouse, and the date for completion has been tentatively set for "six to eight weeks."
"The elevator renovation project is scheduled to begin around the time the restroom project is completed," added Pincola.
In other matters during Wednesday's meeting, the board met in executive session with Harrison County Department of Job and Family Services Director Scott Blackburn to review applications for a department job.
In other business, the commissioners:
Transferred funds from the Omega account into the coroner's fund in the amount of $900. Commissioner Don Bethel asked for a discussion on the transfer.
"The Omega fund encompasses all the money that we have to pay for membership in the (Ohio Mid-Eastern Governments Association) and (Eastern Ohio Development Alliance), and generally out of that we put money in there to pay the coroner's membership," explained Pincola.
"So it is a membership fund?" asked Bethel. "So we are paying for the coroner to be a member of something?"
"We always have," added Platonic. "It should be called membership fund."
Following the discussion, the transfer passed unanimously.
Appropriated into the soil and conservation fund $1,446 in state-match funding.
Heard from Betel, who invited county residents to vote in next week's primary.
"I did not say for who, or for what, but we have a lot of important levies on the ballot and we would like to remind our residents to come out and cast their vote," he said.
