GREENVILLE — The Darke County Board of Commissioners met Thursday to discuss money coming back into the county. Commissiners Larry Holmes and Marshall Combs were present.

In a matter of examination and allowance of bills, the general fund has a total of $22,117.61, the outside general fund has a total of $130,328.70, and there is a grand total of a combined $152,446.31.

The commissioners approved numerous fund advance-backs regarding various projects for the county. For the 2022 Terminal Construction Grant originally advanced out on Jan. 17, a total of $287,517 was advanced back into the general fund. A total of $85,077 was advanced back into the general fund from the original coverage of the 2021 FAA AIP Grant for the airport to cover various projects. A fund advance back for the 2020 FAA AIP Grant was approved to advance revenue back into the general fund in the allotted amount of $30,981.60.

Commissioner Combs acknowledged a new county employee upon voting to approve the full time employment of Kayla Noah as a full-time Deputy Dog Warden effective Jan. 30. Noah is currently completing new employee orientation.

“I just would like to welcome Noah to the county team, and I’m sure she will do a good job,” Combs said.

The commissioners would like to send out a special thank you to all first responders and county employees who are working hard during the inclement weather the county has been having.

“Yesterday, for some folks was a disappointment, and others are relieved with not getting six inches of snow. We always appreciate the works of the county and state snow plow cruise as well as our first responders who are on stand by,” Holmes said.

Combs added “they work around the clock and start way before the storms even hit.”

“They are getting up all hours of the night trying to make the roads as safe as possible for those early commutes to work, so we definitely want to thank them,” Combs said.
