Starke County Council, Commissioners to Meet Tonight

The Starke County Council members will consider several budget transfer requests when they meet tonight.

The highway department, coroner, veteran’s service officer, extension office, surveyor’s office and the clerk’s office will all have transfers for consideration. The council members will also need to reduce the 2019 County General budget.

The Starke County Council will meet at 5:30 p.m. CT tonight followed by a meeting of the Starke County Commissioners.

The commissioners will have the first reading of an OSS ordinance. They will discuss with Attorney Todd Wallsmith a petition to vacate a portion of the roadway at the Cottage Corner subdivision.

The Starke County Economic Development Foundation contract is also up for discussion as well as the 2019 HRA policy, plus orientation and state training for newly elected officials.

Both meetings will be held in the meeting room in the Starke County Annex No. 1 building at 53 E. Mound Street in Knox.
