The Christian County Board met on Tuesday evening to discuss old and new business and review policies and ordinances. Board Member Craig Corzine sat on as Chairman and announced that Matt Wells was out for a medical reason but was OK. Corzine ran the meeting.
There was a new state statute that authorized pay raises to both the State’s Attorney and Public Defender. That motion was approved. The raise was a 2½% increase for the State’s Attorney which would increase the salary to $183,434. The public defender has to be within 9% of the State’s Attorney raising their salary to $165,090. The motion passed without any issues.
The board also announced there would be some bids for removal and landscape for the Court House lawn. The board also discussed residency requirements for the Health Department. Craig Corzine gave an update.
The board also approved appointments for Dr. Trost, Dr. Rick Del Valle, Lindsey Fox, Kathy Fergin, and Dr. Stacey Funderburke for 2 year terms. The board is next set to meet for their regular board meeting on Tuesday, August 17th.
