The Hardin County Commissioners heard from Sheriff Keith Everhart concerning a school resource officer.

 

The Sheriff said there are four school wanting an officer. Ada, Upper Scioto Valley, Ridgemont and Hardin Northern are asking for contracts. The school would pay 75%, or approximately $30,000 each. He said the Sheriff's Office would cover the rest.

 

He said he is reviewing other counties contracts and has some ideas on personnel. The sheriff also noted there could be some one time funds coming from the state.

 

Also at the recent commissioners meeting, Elaine Roynon was hired as the Hardin Hills Administrator effective April 16. Her salary of $75,000 with a one year probationary period was approved. After six months, a salary review will be held for a possible increase to $78,000.
