COUNTY COUNCIL APPOINTMENT TO AREA PLAN COMMISSION BOARD – Jim Suhre, Resident of Brookville asked if anyone of the Council Members had listed to the March 10, 2010 APC Meeting Tape.  Carroll Lanning and Tom Linkel said they had listened to the tape.  Tom had also followed the transcript of the meeting.  Tom Linkel opinion with listing maybe Mr. Kunkel did not have control of the meeting and had not followed parliamentary procedures and if the Area Plan Commission Board did not like the way Mr. Kunkel ran the meeting as President, then they would appoint a new president.  With not being there, can say no fowl.  Jim Suhre with the regards to disputed works, was said people were not educated.  Complaint is not following parliamentary procedures and still defending HNTB’s Proposal.  Hollie Maxie said she did talk to Larry Franzman and maybe getting a mediator would be a solution.  Tom Linkel said he did make some phone calls for a mediator to come to meetings, but they did not want to take that responsibility.  What this being said would not remove Mr. Kunkel form the Area Plan Commission Board.  Jim Suhre, the last meeting was better and parliamentary procedures were followed better.  Carroll Lanning, maybe there was some miscommunication between Council and Mr. Kunkel.  Bradley Spurlock, had attended the last meeting and will be attending future meetings.  Tom Linkel, if we make a vote tonight, we can’t tell an appointee how to vote, they are at the meetings.  Bradley Spurlock and Carroll Lanning, both agreed, need to come to a compromise and work together and give to the Commissioners for a final decision.

PURDUE EXTENSION – Angie Riffle, County Extension Director, Extension Educator and 4-H Development along with Holly Murray, Dave Cook and Joann Koch presented information on Making a Difference in Franklin County.  We’re here this evening to answer any questions that there might be on 4-H Programs or on Programs that Hollie Murray and held last year.  Reported that Franklin County 4-H had over 600 members last year.  Have promoted programs in School Corporations educating food service employees the increase awareness of meth use and the dangers of meth waste.  Thanked the County Council for their Support for 4-H.
