Shelby County board members Wednesday appointed Marlene Waggoner as the next County Supervisor of Assessments.

Waggoner, a longtime employee of the Supervisor office, will succeed Diana Wagner who is retiring as of April 1.

Shelby board members approved an automation fee to be assessed on any transactions handled by the County Treasurer's office.  The funds will help pay for computerizing the County tax sale.  The Board also agreed to changes recommended by the Sheriff's Merit Commission and reinstated the sergeant's position in the sheriff's department.  The position was eliminated in 2006, but Sheriff Mike Miller said he now sees the need for the position to help accomplish supervisory duties.

The Shelby board approved a bridge replacement on the road leading out of Sigel to the cemetery.  The Board and the Village will go halves on the cost of the project.  Board members also rezoned property owned by Joshua Porter in Big Spring Township from agriculture to general business for an auto repair shop.

Board members also approved appointments of Fred Killan to the Board of Appeals and Dave Young to the Sheriff's Merit Commission.
