The Clay County Redevelopment Commission conducted its first meeting of the New Year Wednesday night and took care of positional nominations and a contract.
The first order of business was to swear in the members and nominate positions.
Charlie Brown, the Clay County Commissioners president, was on hand to perform the swearing in duties.
The commission nominated Tom Ames to the position of president, Bill Sisson to vice president and Jan Howell to secretary. All nominations were seconded and passed unanimously.
The next order of business was to set the meeting dates and times.
Ames asked the commission how it felt about keeping the date the same, but moving the meeting time back to 6 p.m., instead of 6:30.
The commission agreed it will meet the third Wednesday of every month, and it will try out the new 6 p.m. meeting time.
Meanwhile, the commission reviewed a contract between the county and West Central Indiana Economic Development that was presented at the last meeting.
Ames took the contract to County Attorney Eric Somheil who found an addition had to be made pertaining to labor practice compliance, which was verbiage, stating that all workers had to be documented legal residents.
Before making the motion to accept the contract and amendments, Ames touched on a few highlights of the contract.
"Ten-thousand dollars is what we pay West Central (Indiana Economic Development), which amounts to about $51.36 an hour as their hourly rate," Ames said.
Ames made the motion to accept the contract, which was seconded and passed unanimously.
The next scheduled meeting will be Wednesday, Feb. 15, at 6 p.m., in the Clay County Courthouse Commissioner's Courtroom.
