Fountain ends year in good shape

COVINGTON, Ind. — Fountain County ended 2012 in good shape financially, county council president Richard Klage told councilmen Monday.

“We had a $105,000 surplus,” he said. Fountain County had receipts of $5.9 million in the general fund and spent $5.8 million.

“I hope 2013 turns out as well,” he said.

In county business, councilmen:

  • Heard from Garth Kagels, ambulance director, that a walk-through of the new ambulance building was conducted last week, and a few minor items are being addressed. Personnel for the grant the county received will conduct their walk-through on Feb. 7 and finalize paperwork.
  • Heard the six persons from the Emergency Medical Services have completed their coursework to become paramedics. Graduation will be at 7 p.m. EST Friday at the Hendricks County Fairgrounds. They will take the test in the near future to be certified.
  • Rejected a request to increase the hourly salary of the special projects assistant in the extension office from $10.49 to $11.09 per hour since no courthouse employees received raises for 2013. She will be allowed to work additional hours this year since the $11,000 cap was raised to $12,000 for the year.
  • Learned from Colleen Chambers, treasurer, that the county will need a new depository of funds since MainSource Bank is closing its Covington branch on April 1. The county only switched their funds to MainSource in October.
  • Appointed Jim Robinson to a four-year term on the Covington-Veedersburg Library Board, Robert “Bob” Baldwin to the Alcohol and Beverage Commission, Dale Clawson to the Fountain County Solid Waste Management Board and Joe Whittington to the Emergency Management advisory council.
  • Re-elected Klage and Jim Hersberger as president and vice president, respectively, of the council.
