The Auglaize County Health Board approved another deposit to its salary reserve fund.
Auglaize County Health Commissioner Charlotte Parsons said the $5,000 will be added to the fund, which they try to keep between $15,000 and $20,000 to pay out of for retirees who have accumulated vacation or sick leave.
During Tuesdayâs meeting, Parsons said in the past they have had to pay out as much as $16,000 upon the retirement of a long time employee who had maxed out sick and vacation leave.
As the way people gather information changes with technology, so does the way information is offered to the public.
âWe have seen the need for people to access the same kind of data through their smart device,â Auglaize County Geographic Information System (GIS) Director Joe Collin said.
In response, he developed a new online mapping application âappâ to be used on those smart devices, from phones to tablets.
âWe felt a need to create an application that would work on more than the basic computer with the emergence of mobile devices,â Collin said.
Thefts were reported from three vehicles parked at homes on Lambert Road, St. Marys, during the weekend.
