Starke County Council, Commissioners to Meet Tonight

The Starke County Council members will discuss a request from Sheriff Bill Dulin about a new CAD system when they meet tonight. Sheriff Dulin said in a previous meeting that an update with the current system limits what the staff can use in terms of gathering pertinent information concerning drug cases for the application of grant funds. A new program could cost upwards of $150,000, which was the last preliminary estimate figured by Dulin, but he will have more information for the council members tonight.

The council members will also receive an annual update from Starke County Youth Club Director Irene Szakonyi, and Clerk Vicki Cooley will present Microvote information ahead of the May Primary Election.

The Starke County Council will meet at 5:30 p.m. CT. At the conclusion of the meeting, the Starke County Commissioners will meet. They plan to hear a proposal from Maintenance Director Jim Coad and Knox-Center Township Fire Chief Kenny Pfost about a Knox box for the fire department, Coroner Dannie Hoffer will talk about autopsies with the commissioners, and paperwork for Starke County Community Services will be a topic of discussion. IT Director Richard Franks will have a monthly report for the commissioners.

Both the Starke County Commissioners and Starke County Council members will meet in the meeting room in the Starke County Annex No. 1 building at 53 E. Mound Street in Knox.
