OTTAWA - On Thursday Jan. 17, the Putnam County Commissioners approved a resolution to authorize Putnam County Job and Family Services to pay both agency and employee's share of Health Insurance Premiums for the month of December. The county employees are required to meet all eligibility guidelines to receive this benefit. Part of the program involves going to various health and wellness programs offered in Putnam County.

Separately, the commissioners approved a resolution to advertise sealed bids for the sale of three vehicles no longer needed at Putnam Acres Care Center. A 2001 Ford station wagon, 2007 Chevrolet minivan and a 2002 Ford mini bus will be available for view by contacting Barb Verhoff on Jan. 30 and 31 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. each day.

The commissioners also adopted a resolution for two businesses located in Sewer District one that have turned ownership of the sewer line over to the commissioners.

Because the commissioners are the owners of Sewer District one located east of Ottawa, they are responsible to maintain and repair the line. Two businesses that have installed a sewer line to their businesses have turned the ownership over to the commissioners.

The Putnam County Commissioners will meet again on Tuesday at 10 a.m. for their regular agenda meeting located in the Putnam County Court House.
