Martin County sells 2 acres at Tech Park

SHOALS —

She said Martin County was charging significantly lower fees than surrounding counties and noted that on death certificates they were actually losing money.

“The new fees reflect a little better on the time it is taking us,” said Albright.

The commissioners also signed the health department’s contract with Hoosier Uplands. The contract is for Hoosier Uplands providing office space and staffing for the health department. There was no change in the contract amount which has been in place since the late 1990s.

The total contract is for $65,619 and of that the department receives local health maintenance funding of $33,139 from the state health department.

Highway Superintendent Jim Williams reported that the bridge being replaced on Deep Cut Lake Road is coming along with abutments done on both sides. He said beams are scheduled to be put in this week.

Pat King, with community corrections, told the commissioners that normally she would be presenting the department’s 2013-14 budget at this time, but due to changes she will be submitting that at the first of the year.

Judge Lynne Ellis reported that the key fobs will be installed on the doors at the courthouse tomorrow. She said the goal is to have it done before the end of the year.

County attorney Dave Lett said any group and/or board needing to appoint members for next year should let the commissioners know as soon as possible.

On a final note, the commissioners wished the county residents a Merry Christmas and reported that the courthouse will be closed today from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. for the employees’ annual Christmas party.
