Osceola County commissioner Jack Nehmer of Marion was appointed by the Board of Commissioners at its recent monthly meeting to the Osceola County Land Bank Authority. He and Martin Nehmer were appointed for a term of one year starting on July 31.
The commissioners also approved the policy and agreement to participate with the Paramedic Tuition Program for up to four people annually.

“It’s Baker College that comes in and offers that training,” Elkins said. “We provide the equipment and it would be at the emergency management department, which has a classroom facility. It gives them a chance to do some additional training and increase their certification. Then you may move on to a job somewhere else.”

Aaron Mitchell was approved to the Osceola County Planning Commission representing small business to a term expiring July 18, 2020.

The board approved having the Department of Heath and Human Services board use $750 of their funding to send youth to Rose Lake Youth camp.

Elkins is also on the Health, Safety and Grounds Committee which has also been meeting.

“The Landmark Design group is the architect we have been working with, Elkins said.

“They had some drawings of things that maybe could be done possibly in the short term to end up with additional screening for people coming into the courthouse,” Elkins said. “We looked at those. It wasn’t anything final yet at this point, we’re just looking at some ideas they came up with.

“Previously, we had looked at maybe more expensive renovations to both buildings with the courthouse and courthouse annex. This would be an intermediate plan. We’re only in discussion at this point.”

Nehmer has also been on the committee and said the group has been more active than previous committees in looking for the issue of safety and grounds. A main effort has been enforcing more security at the entrance ways so individuals are checked effectively prior to going through the building.

Nehmer indicated the committee now is hoping to accomplish whatever might be possible in terms of improving security.
“We want to get basic things down,” he said.
