Starke County Commissioners to Meet Tonight

The Starke County Commissioners have several items up for discussion when they meet tonight.

The three board members will discuss the coroner’s pay for 2018. Coroner Dannie Hoffer appeared before the board in August asking for a pay raise, stating that he’s the lowest paid coroner in the state.

The commissioners will also get an update on how the ambulance repairs are coming along and how the budget is faring for the Starke County EMS Department. Director Travis Clary and Clerk Mary Lynn Ritchie will present a monthly report.

Maintenance Director James Coad will discuss the annex building parking lot as well as electric on the third floor of the Starke County Courthouse.

Other items on the agenda include a presentation on the county’s insurance renewal, a 2017 Capital Assets report, the 2018 holiday calendar and a date for the commissioners’ certificate tax sale. Anthony Rybicki will talk to the commissioners about Woodland Ave. in Koontz Lake.

The Starke County Commissioners will meet at 6 p.m. CT in the Starke County Annex Building No. 1.
