Pavement projects approved

By Martin Graham -

The Fayette County Commissioners recently authorized Steve Luebbe, county engineer, to begin work on county road pavement marking projects.

It was moved by commissioner Jack DeWeese and seconded by commissioner Dan Dean that Luebbe be authorized to advertise to receive bids on Monday, July 18 at 11 a.m. in the Commissioners’ Office for the 2016 Fayette County Pavement Marking Project. The engineer’s estimate for this project is $35,940.16.

Additionally, it was moved by Dean and seconded by DeWeese to adopt a resolution authorizing Luebbe to enter into an agreement with the Ohio Department of Transportation for local public agency Federal Project Funds. The project proposes to install pavement markings on various county roads in the county and declares the project to be an emergency measure to expedite the transportation project and to promote transportation safety.

The commissioners also approved three other contracts during the meeting. Per the request of Faye Williamson, director of the Fayette County Department of Job and Family Services (JFS), the commissioners approved a contract between JFS and Workforce Services Unlimited Inc. The contract will provide comprehensive case management to eligible youth 16 to 24 years-old under the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act and Comprehensive Case Management Employment Program. The period will be from July 1 to June 30 of next year. The second contract was established between the same two parties, but seeks to provide consulting and professional services for the same time frame

Finally, it was moved by Dean and seconded by DeWeese to accept the proposal and approve the contract with AT&T Mobility for the use of two Sonim XP7 Ultra-Rugged Smartphones for the Information Technology Department personnel.
