Kumpf said the district has various options for the stadium and needs to continue a dialogue as it works to hire a new athletic director this summer. “That need isn’t going to go away,” Kumpf said of a stadium project. NANCY BOWMAN, CONTRIBUTING WRITER
Commissioners see tech for poll workers
The Miami County commissioners Tuesday were introduced to the new electronic poll books purchased recently for the county Board of Elections.
The poll books are a tablet for use by poll workers to check in voters on Election Day. They first will be used locally in the special congressional election Tuesday, June 7. Elections Director Bev Kendall and Deputy Director Eric Morgan set up a tablet for each commissioner to try out the system.
The county commission March 29 approved the purchase and agreed to pay upfront for the 100 Express Poll Tablets for $169,665. The county will be reimbursed by the state for $119,013. NANCY BOWMAN, CONTRIBUTING WRITER
