Last week the County Commissioners approved the request of WIC Coordinator Ashley Derf to apply for the 2024 WIC Fiscal grant. 

The grant request was in the amount of $260,901.61 and Derf explained that the funding comes from the USDA and is disbursed to the Indiana Department of Health and distributed to the counties.

The commissioners accepted the September 12th letter of resignation from Mary Banfield their appointment to the Culver- Union Township Public Library.  She cited personal health reasons for the resignation.     

Marty Oosterbaan, Secretary of the Culver-Union Township Public Library appeared before the County Commissioners on the 16th with a request to fill their vacancy on the library board.

A letter of interest was sent to the County Commissioners from Jan Fitterling.  Oosterbaan said Fitterling is a retired teacher and an active volunteer in Culver.  He told the commissioners she would be an asset to the library board.    

The County Commissioners appointed Fitterling to the vacancy on the Culver-Union Township Library Board.  Her term will run through the end of 2025. 

The Commissioners also approved on all three readings an amendment to the county’s ordinance Restricting Home Address Access on the County’s website.  County Attorney Jim Clevenger said in July the state expanded the criteria of state and county employees that can restrict their address information to the public.  Those individuals must renew their request every 5 years.

Some of those state and county employees eligible to restrict their home addresses include judges, law enforcement officers, employees of the Department of Child Services, probation officers, community correction officers, firefighters, and public officials according to Ind. Code 36-1-8.5-2.
