Commissioners approve zoning cases


EATON — Preble County Commissioners heard two different zoning cases during their meeting on Wednesday, July 5. The first was Case 1428, for John and Beverly Van Hook. The second was Case 1429, for Elizabeth and Brooke Schumm Jr. The board approved both.

During the meeting, the checks from the Commissioners’ Ball were distributed to the chosen charities.

Administrative Assistant Kim Keller discussed the Critical Infrastructure projects the county has open. She noted, because they are proposing to have three open at one time, she must send in a waiver, since that is technically against the rules for Critical Infrastructure grants.

“As you know we are applying for two critical infrastructure projects this year and they said they were going to allow it this year and that they were going to be more lenient, since they changed their funding cycles and so forth,” she said. “We still have to officially request a waiver to be allowed to have more than two critical infrastructure grants open to Preble County at one time. Since we already have one open and it will be open next year, if these go in this year that will be two, and if we’re successful that will be a Preble County three, and we’re only allowed to have two. I sent in a letter with one of the applications asking them to waive that requirement.”

The Preble County Commissioners meet every Monday and Wednesday at 9 a.m. in commission chambers at the Preble County Courthouse.
