Tough Talk As Steuben Council Approves $25K Transfer

(ANGOLA) - A request to transfer over $25,500 to pay for design work on a proposed building and storm shelter at the Steuben County 4-H Fairgrounds was approved on Tuesday by the Steuben County Council but not before a deadlocked 3-3 vote led to some tough talk between Council members and Commission Chair Ron Smith.

The transfer was requested to pay a bill from the engineering firm of Donohue and Herceg.

The County Council earlier approved $3 million in Major Moves funds for improvements at the County Park but there has been some uneasiness about the scope of the building project in recent Council meetings.

The County should find out by the end of the year if a F.E.M.A. grant application will be approved which would allow the building to be used as a storm shelter in case of severe weather.

Council member Dan Caruso felt the county was in the process of putting in a building it could not afford while fellow Council member Sara Tubergan told Smith he has not convinced her the building would be good for the county.

Council President Rick Shipe said he did not see how the Council could deny the transfer when the funding has already been approved. Council member Ruth Beer felt the Council was being irresponsible.

Shipe pointed out the County Park has generated almost $411,000 for the general fund over the last couple of years.

Eventually, Beer motioned that the transfer be approved and it passed 5-0.
