TROY — The Miami County Board of Commissioners voted Thursday to make two appointments to the Miami County Board of Developmental Disabilities (MCBDD).
Shawn McKinney, of Troy, was re-appointed to the MCBDD, and Joe Fulker, of Troy, was appointed. Both terms will begin Jan. 1, 2022, and expire Dec. 31, 2025.
Also during Thursday’s meeting, commissioners accepted a quote, authorizing an upgrade with Equivant for implementation of CourtView 3 Ohio DPS Standard E-Citation Interface, as requested by the Clerk of Court’s Office.
The e-citation allows law enforcement agencies to electronically transmit traffic citations to the Clerk’s Office. Currently, all citations have to be hand-delivered or left in a drop-box located in the Sheriff’s Office lobby.
This upgrade/purchase is sole-source. The total cost shall not exceed $29,484.
The board then authorized the submission of a grant application to the Supreme Court of Ohio requesting funding for the implementation of an electronic citation module (e-citations).
The requested grant amount is $29,484 to be used for licensing and installation costs for an e-citation module for the Municipal Court and the Clerk of Courts.
The commissioners will be attending an insurance committee meeting on Friday, Oct. 15, 2021, at 11 a.m., via Zoom.
