POMEROY — The Meigs County Commissioners on Thursday passed a force account resolution for 2016 for the highway department, which Commissioner Randy Smith said is routine.

The Area Agency on Aging requested that a commissioner be appointed to the Regional Advisory Council of Aging. Smith agreed to staying on the board.

A Change Order 9 request from Hoon Inc. for the EMS building totaling $5,616.08 was brought forward, but tabled until the next meeting.

Smith said that on Monday morning, the Board of Revisions would meet at 10 a.m. in Auditor Mary T. Byer Hill’s office. The board consists of Hill, one commissioner, the county treasurer and Appraisal Research Corporation. Smith explained that this specific board handles any questions or concerns residents bring forth about property taxes. The commissioners would also be holding their organizational meeting Monday morning at 11 a.m.

Lastly, Pomeroy’s new mayor, Bryan Shank, introduced himself to the commissioners, and both groups said that they were hoping to work together as they continued to improve Pomeroy and Meigs County. The meeting was held in the Law Library at the courthouse as new windows were being put in the commissioners’ room, Smith said. He expected the commissioners to be back in their own office by Friday.
