Commissioners seeking person to fill vacancy on public defender board

| December 23, 2015

COSHOCTON – The Coshocton County Commissioners met with County Auditor Christine Sycks to discuss newly-installed county software that will import information for the Affordable Care Act that previously had to be manually updated. For 2015, each county employee who was eligible for insurance had to have their information keyed into the county’s system. This software automatically imports information from the previous year.

The commissioners then met with Jeff Mullen, public defender, to discuss a vacancy that will be available on the public defender board within the next two to seven months. The seat must be filled with an attorney as it is state mandated that there be two attorneys on the board. The seat does not necessarily need to be filled by a resident of Coshocton County. If any attorney is interested in applying for the vacant seat, contact the commissioners’ office at 740-622-1753.

The commissioners also reviewed and approved:

  • A motion to approve the bills per computer printout dated Dec. 23, 2015.
  • Receive the dog warden’s report for the week ending Dec. 21, 2015 with two dogs picked up by the warden, three dogs brought in as strays, two dogs destroyed, three citations issued, 26 calls handled, 21 licenses sold, 10 dogs sold, two dogs redeemed, three dogs per owner surrendered, $5 in boarding fees collected for a total of $482 in fees collected.
  • Receive the Coshocton County Prosecutors Annual Report for the period Sept. 1, 2014 through Aug. 31, 2015.
  • A motion to authorize a blanket meeting request for the Veterans Service Commission to attend meetings, conferences, seminars, and training for the 2016 calendar year.
