The Starke County Election Board members are expected to talk to the commissioners tonight about an early voting location for the May Primary Municipal Election. Early voting is usually held on the second floor of the courthouse, but with the courthouse elevator replacement project underway, the room on the first floor of the courthouse that would be used to hold early voting in this case is said to be in use by the contractors for the storage of tools and other equipment. The Election Board members believe the contractors can store their items in another location. That discussion will continue tonight.
Starke County Economic Development Foundation Executive Director Larry Wickert will present a monthly report as well as the Millenium contract and rail spur contract. A representative from K-RIPC and HWC will discuss contracts for the broadband plan and comprehensive plan. Julia Miller from Purdue Extension Starke County will discuss the Memorandum of Understanding of Purdue Extension Contractual Services agreement, and Court Services Director Shawn Mattraw will ask for signatures on grant funding paperwork.
Starke County EMS Director Travis Clary and Clerk Mary Lynn Ritchie will have updates for the commissioners as well as Highway Superintendent Rik Ritzler. The commissioners are also expected to discuss the cyber security contract.
The Starke County Commissioners will meet tonight at 6 p.m. CT in the first floor meeting room the Starke County Annex No. 1 building at 53 E. Mound Street in Knox.
