County allocates money for Homesafe

The Ashtabula County Board of Commissioners made quick work of a short agenda Thursday.

Board President Joseph Moroski was absent, and Vice President Daniel Claypool led the session during which commissioners approved an agreement with the Morgan Township Board of Trustees for snow and ice removal on Pioneer Hill Road.

The agreement, retroactive to the beginning of 2010, covers a .12-mile stretch of road. The township will pay the county a flat rate of $144 to plow the road, which can be maintained more efficiently by the county.

The board also approved a payroll change for Janet Boland, E911/ planner-trainer for the Emergency Management Agency. Boland, formerly with the county’s Information Technology Services Department, became an EMA employee Jan. 5.

Commissioners approved an allocation of $12,322.41 to Homesafe, an area nonprofit domestic-violence shelter. As such, marriage license fees collected by the county are earmarked for the shelter. Homesafe received a disbursement of $9,435.30 in August 2009, making for $21,757.71 in total disbursement for last year.

The board of commissioners will not hold an agenda meeting Tuesday because the date follows a Monday holiday, Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Commissioners will hold the first of two public hearings on a proposed sales-tax increase at 7 p.m. Tuesday in the commissioners’ meeting room of the Old Courthouse.
