David Gentile of Morrow County Planning/zoning reported to Commissioners on progress with the addressing project. He said there are 500 addresses out of sequence in Morrow County. The 100 addresses at Candlewood and being handled independently.

Gentile said that the main problem is that when one number is out of sequence, a whole row or street needs changed to get homes back in sequence. Residents are given number signs to compensate for having to change. Now new residents can come to the planning office and purchase a green sign at cost.

Commissioner Tom Whiston said he has had only one resident come in from Perry Twp. and question the new assigned number. They couldn’t see where their number was out of sequence. Gentile said he would look at it to see what the reason for the change was.

There were also some differences between post office address numbers and the street or road address. Gentile said that the county assigns the number, but the post office can still dictate the mailing address.

Address maps are coordinated with zoning the Auditor and GIS mapping. Gentile said that data from past zoning permits is being entered into the data base.

Commissioners approved the cyber security policy recommended by the County Risk Sharing Authority (CORSA.) Protection was put in place already since the courts’ experience of being hacked last summer in a ransomware attack. Commissioners have also contracted with Trithium Solutions for repair and managed services.

Auditor Pat Davies commented that Morrow County had been 86th of the 88 Ohio counties in technology quality. The county is now in the top one percent in technology updates.

Commissioners approved the appointment of Jerry West by the Common Pleas Court as Park Commissioner for the county. It is for a three year term beginning Jan. 1, 2017. Dixie Shinaberry is appointed to a three year term on the Morrow County Park District Board of Commissioners beginning Jan. 1, 2017 and concluding Dec. 31, 2019.
