THE BEACON 17 SEPTEMBER 26, 2018 Commissioners hear concerns from Soil and Water District By Beth Scott COSHOCTON – Th e Coshocton County Commissioners met with representatives from the Coshocton Soil and Water Con- servation District (SWCD) at their regular Wednesday meeting on Sept. 19. Th e SWCD have concerns about the Farm Service Administration (FSA), which is currently housed in the SWCD offi ce, and their possible move to another location in Coshocton. “It’s a concern with the clients that we both serve and all of the benefi ts that we off er our clients to be there together,” said Deb Bigelow, director of SWCD. “It would make things a lot diff erent if that [the move] would come to fruition. It would aff ect the number of people coming through the door.” Th e FSA has considered moving from the county services building for over a year and a space in Coshocton has been off ered to them. If they would leave the county services building, the county would lose money in rental income. Th e commissioners would then look for another agency to fi ll the offi ce space, which shares an offi ce with the SWCD. In 2017, the commissioners sent a letter asking the FSA to stay in their current location. However, the FSA responded with a list of requirements that the com- missioners said are not feasible includ- ing more parking spaces for trucks and trailers, a locked air-conditioned server room, and a 2,800 square foot offi ce. Th ey currently have 1,899 square feet. Th e SWCD said that currently, they use the fairgrounds for parking if clientele come to their offi ce with a trailer hitched to a truck and wondered if the FSA could do the same for their parking situation. Th e SWCD said they just wanted to approach the commissioners with their concerns if the FSA decides to move to another location. Th e commissioners said they would like to review the list of requests from the FSA to see if they can meet some of those needs. Th e commissioners also approved and reviewed: • Received the dog warden’s report for the week ending Sept. 17 with 11 dogs picked up by the warden, two dogs destroyed, 15 dog licenses sold, 17 dogs sold, 10 dogs redeemed, 14 dogs per owner surrender, $240 in boarding fees collected, fi ve citations issued, and 37 calls handled for a total of $1,025 in fees collected • A motion to sign a letter of support for the Coshocton County Sheriff ’s Offi ce 2019 Grant Funding Request to the Coshocton Fairfi eld Licking Perry Solid Waste District for their Litter Law Enforcement Program in the amount of $55,000.
