Pulaski County Commissioners to Vote on Solar Ordinance Updates Today

Pulaski County Commissioners: Mike McClure, Jerry Locke, Kenny Becker

Updates to Pulaski County’s solar farm regulations are up for the county commissioners’ final approval this morning. One of the biggest changes is that commercial solar farms would only be allowed in agricultural zones after a hearing before the board of zoning appeals or in planned unit developments. The proposed updates to the county’s Unified Development Ordinance got a favorable recommendation from the advisory plan commission last month.

In other business this morning, insurance agent Gene Timm is expected to make a recommendation on workers’ compensation coverage. Back in October, Timm reported that the county was being dropped by its current provider, the Indiana Public Employers’ Plan.

The commissioners are also expected to finalize a bid for a new chip spreader for the Highway Department. The only bid came from Southeastern for a cost of $193,000, including a trade-in allowance.

Pulaski County Public Library Executive Director MacKenzie Ledley will discuss repairs to the parking lot that the library shares with the County Annex Building. William McBee will discuss the purchase of four lots in the Monterey Resorts area, and the county’s hazardous materials response plan will be up for the commissioners’ approval.

This morning’s Pulaski County Commissioners meeting starts at 8:30 EST at the Pulaski County Highway Garage.
