As Lerch returned to her seat, after urging commissioners to move meeting times back to evening, she was met by loud and long round applause from the audience.

Bryan and McDaniel each later thanked the public for the large turnout.

“I appreciate everyone being here and I also appreciate the support for open, accountable and representative government and I hope we will have that this year,” Bryan said.

Americus Ditch

The lone bone of contention during the meeting arose over the issue of the Americus Ditch and a letter from Ralph Rish of Preble Rish Engineers outlining a suggested path of action to address the project and its chronic problems.

Rish wrote that his company would fix, at its cost, five locations along the ditch to assess the best method of fixing drainage issues along the entire length. Preble Rish would also pay for materials the county would need to fix additional areas.

Bryan said she was pleased to see the response from Preble Rish, who engineered and inspected the original project, and thanked Rish for the information.
