LAGRANGE - A showdown between the LaGrange County Council and County Prosecutor Jeff Wible over the use of infraction deferral funds may be sidetracked.

The LaGrange County Commissioners agreed to finance to technology projects from remaining funds in the last technology bond.

That decision came Monday morning when IT Director Bob Murphy told the commissioners the auditor reported some unspent funds remaining in the tech bond account.

Those projects are an expansion of the county network’s storage capability for $20,505 and an interview recording system at the county jail for $23,875.

Commissioners chose not to discuss a land dispute in the Indian Lakes area this morning. Real estate agent Penny Miller came before the commissioners wishing to talk about the issue saying she wanted to talk about a common sense solution.

But Commission President Jac Price said they would not talk about the issue in an open session because the LaGrange County Regional Utility District is in litigation over the matter.

County Attorney Kurt Bachman suggested that Miller make her request to meet with the commissioners in executive session in writing and specify exactly what she wished to discuss.

In other business, the commissioners approved an increase in the supervision fees paid by prisoners on work release. They also approved the vacation of a platted road at Pretty Lake and a three year trash removal agreement with Republic Sanitation for the county parks and buildings.

Also, the commissioners learned the cost of road salt is going up. The bid opening revealed an apparent low bid of $72.87 per ton. Last year’s price for salt was $63.87 per ton.
