In other recent news from the commissioners’ office, a bid was received from the 3C Cab Company for Medicaid transportation services for the Fayette County Department of Job and Family Services (FCDJFS). That bid was rejected per the request of the director of the FCDJFS, Faye Williamson.

A resolution was adopted to show a committed partnering of Fayette County with both the U.S. Census Bureau and the State of Ohio. This partnering signifies the intent that Fayette County will support goals and ideals for the 2020 census, will share information in relation to the 2020 census to help increase participation, will encourage all county residents to participate in awareness of the census, assist and support census takers in fulfilling an accurate count of the local population, etc.
