Meeting: Dubois County Solid Waste

The Dubois County Solid Waste Management District Board met Tuesday and:

• Started discussing the draft of a property maintenance ordinance that would combine the county’s weed and junk ordinances and would make some changes in how violations are detected. The board decided to hold a special meeting to fully go through the draft ordinance. The meeting is tentatively set for 8 a.m. Feb. 11; district Director Carla Striegel–Winner will check her schedule to confirm.

• Welcomed to the board Jasper Mayor Dean Vonderheide, who was in attendance; Ferdinand Town Council President Ken Sicard, who was not able to attend Tuesday’s meeting; and new district attorney Greg Schnarr.

• Reorganized the board. Elmer Brames, who is a county commissioner, was re-elected as president. Chad Blessinger, another commissioner, was elected at vice president, replacing Jasper Councilman John Bell.
