Meeting: County Commissioners

The Dubois County Commissioners met this morning and:

”¢ Supported a proposal to build a $540,000 hangar at the Huntingburg Airport. The airport’s two communal hangars and a third building used to store larger planes are full because of increased flight activity. The proposal now heads to the county council, which must approve the cost.

”¢ Hired Carla Striegel-Winner, 43, of Ferdinand as the county’s solid waste manager. She replaces David Flynn, who resigned earlier this month to take a military position overseas. Her first day will be May 1 and her starting salary will be about $40,000.

Ӣ Agreed to close parts of county roads 1100S, 200W, 100W and 1000S from 7:30 to 10 a.m. June 14 for the St. Henry Community Club 4-mile run and walk.

Ӣ Heard that water is seeping into the courthouse annex basement. Custodian Scott Hopf is exploring how to fix the problem.
