The commissioners and Cornelius said they would use the smaller stone in areas where there is a lot of horse traffic, but it could take time to get every road in the Amish community.
“It’s going to take some time,” Cornelius said.
“We’re going to start working on it,” Commissioner Tony Wichman said.
The commissioners approved an ordinance raising document fees at the Health Department. Copies for birth and death certificates will rise to $10 from $8.
County Health Nurse Kathy Sullender said the rise in the fees was needed due to a state-mandated rise in fees for death certificates and increased costs in supplies. Fees have stayed the same since 2008.
Bennington Levee committee
Due to a change in state law, the commissioners are allowed to make an appointment to the Bennington Levee committee. In effect on July 1, commissioners and county councils can make appointments to the board because counties do have financial oversight on the levee boards.
Last month, the county settled its lawsuit with the Bennington Levee committee for repayment of funds to repair the levee after a 2011 breach.
The commissioners appointed Wichman to a four-year term on the board.
