POMEROY — The Meigs County Commissioners approved changes to the dog license fees for 2014.

A resolution established a fee for one year, three years or a permanent fee as stipulated through Ohio House Bill 59.

The new structure goes into effect on Dec. 1, 2013.

A one year fee will cost $12 per dog, with a three year fee costing $36. A permanent license would cost $120 per dog. A kennel license fee would be $60.

Previously, the fee for a one year license had been $8 one of the lowest in the state.

Bids/cost proposals were opened for the Rutland basketball court project. A bid for materials and labor was received from PSI Construction in the amount of $8,500. A proposal for equipment only was received from BSN Sports Inc. in the amount of $1,389.92.

The commissioners approved a letter of support for the Hocking County EB-5 program. The purpose of the program is to establish a targeted area designation from the State of Ohio which may include all or a portion of Meigs County. It is believed that this will enhance efforts to bring jobs and investment to southeast Ohio.

Bills were approved in the amount of $314,785.40, with $29,681.74 from county general. Minutes of last week’s meeting were also approved.
