Commissioners accept Lindloff resignation during meeting

By Austin Schmidt -

EATON —The Preble County Commissioners noted receipt of an official letter of retirement from Preble County Coroner’s Investigator David Lindloff during a meeting on Monday, Oct. 26.

Lindloff retired after many years of service to Preble County with a letter which reads, “For the most part I enjoyed working with everyone the past 21 years, thank you very much for all your help throughout the years.”

He also expressed confidence in his replacements, Andy Borgwardt and Pam Boyd, who will split the duties of investigative coroner for Preble County.

“I feel very comfortable having Andy Borgwardt as a chief investigator,” the letter stated. “Andy has a BA from the University of Dayton in Criminal Justice with a minor psychology and Boyd spent her career as a military police officer and 15 years working in the Texas Department of Corrections system.”

Lindloff’s resignation was official on Oct. 9, and he received a proclamation from the commissioners during their meeting on Monday, Nov. 2.

“He’s probably gone above and beyond over the years, and that is a job I totally respect and would not want to do,” Commissioner Chris Day said after reading the letter of resignation.

Commissioners also met with representatives from Job and Family Services.

Becky Sorrell reported an unemployment rate of 4.1 percent in the month of September for Preble County.

The county assisted 270 people with cash assistance, 1585 for food assistance and had 23 new applicants for programs in the month of September.

Commissioners also approved a resolution for the transfer of funds to Job and Family Services salaries and PERS for the salary of Children Services head Jeff Centers, who was hired after approval of the 2015 budget was already made.

In other business:

Commissioners approved a resolution authorizing the expenditure of $2,425.25 for the purchase of a MARCS radio for security at courthouse.

Commissioners approved travel requests for the commissioners and Clerk Connie Crowell to attend a conference at a price not to exceed $3,000.

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