POMEROY — The commissioners moved the date of their meeting for next week.

While meetings are usually 11 a.m. Thursdays, the commissioners voted to move their meeting to 11 a.m. Dec. 30 because of the New Year’s Eve holiday on Thursday.

Two change orders from Hoon Inc. of Athens were approved for the new Med-Flight Building that is set to be complete in spring.

Also approved was the transfer of $15,513.74 from county general into the tourism account. This money, they said, came from the reimbursement check for timber sales the county received last week.

The value of the total check presented to the commissioners last week was $62,054.96, which is a net value stumpage revenue payment from state forest timber sales from July 1, 2014, through June 30, 2015. Meigs County and Olive Township received $15,513.74 of the money, with Eastern Local School District receiving the majority of funds at $31,027.48.

The commissioners also gave permission to Meigs County Auditor Mary T. Byer Hill to adjust amounts in all of the county’s line items to help balance out for the end of the year. They also announced that total appropriations for 2016 are currently $5,293,504.59, up from the $4,979,521.79 appropriations for 2015.

The minutes from the previous week were also approved.
