Commissioners commend Corynna Strawser

GREENVILLE – “Brave little girl,” said Darke County Commissioner Mike Stegall following the presentation of the Commissioners Proclamation to Corynna Strawser.

Due to the girl’s inability to visit the Commissioner’s Office, the Commissioners went to her. Each of the commissioners – Diane Delaplane, Mike Rhoades and Stegall - had comments about their visit with the Darke County teen who has been afflicted with Mitochondrial Disease.

“It takes a lot of courage… she put herself out there; if that isn’t courage, what is?”

Rhoades said it was a humbling experience.

The Proclamation was presented at 1 p.m.; the regular public meeting began on time at 1:30 p.m. Nov. 20 in the Darke County Commissioners Office.

In addition to multiple transfers of appropriations ranging from $ .20 to $14,800 to balance budgets by year’s end, commissioners approved unpaid ‘False Alarm’ charges to be placed on the tax bill of Gary Richards of Hollansburg.

The cumulative fee was $450 for seven false alarms occurring in January, February, May and June. The first three were no charge, the fourth $50, the fifth $100 and the last two, $150 each.

The fees were for Darke County Sheriff’s Deputies responses to alarms.

According to the commissioners, letters have been sent as well as verbal notices given.
