Commissioners OK purchases

By Cecilia Fox -

MIAMI COUNTY — At their meeting Tuesday, the Miami County Commissioners approved purchases and changes to the county’s personnel manual.

The commissioners signed an agreement with Fidlar Technologies for software used by the Miami County Recorder’s Office.

The agreement is for three years of land records LifeCycle service, a program that supports the daily function of the Recorder’s Office.

The cost is not to exceed $35,000 for three years.

The board authorized the purchase of two light bars for Sheriff’s Office. The quote of $3,060 from KE Rose Company of Huber Heights was the lowest of the three quotes received.

The county has revised its policy on concealed carry weapons for employees to reflect the changes to the Ohio Revised Code. Employees with a concealed carry permit may keep their firearms in their locked cars while at work.

A law that takes effect next Tuesday lifts the ban on concealed carry at universities, day cares, in school safety zones and some public buildings, and allows those establishments to adopt policies permitting people to carry guns.

Signed last year by Gov. John Kasich, the law prohibits employers from banning permit holders from keeping guns locked in their cars while at work.

The board discussed the change with Human Resources Director Tammie Hoover last week.
