Campos approved to attend training class in Florida

Chief Deputy Jeff Campos was approved to attend a class in Orlando, Fla., Jan. 5-11 next year. The training is instruction on how to operate and analyze a voice stress machine.

Commissioners approved the request with the understanding that the $2,035 funding for the project come from Infraction Deferral.

Commissioners also approved the replacement of a vehicle at the sheriff’s department. The vehicle has traveled some 106,000 miles and is encountering maintenance issues that have been determined to be too great for the value of the vehicle.

Money for the vehicle trade will come from the current year’s appropriated sheriff’s budget.

Commissioner Jac Price reported that the NIPSCO project of extending a high power line from Reynolds to Topeka is moving forward. Officials from NIPSCO are in the process of acquiring additional rights-of-way where needed. Most of the line will be run side-by-side with existing lines. Expected completion date is 2016.
