The Miami County commissioners met with three companies April 11 and 12 to discuss design services for the proposed One Stop Shop Facility that would replace the existing leased space for services on Experiment Farm Road in Troy. 
The commissioners met with representatives of App Architecture, Garmann-Miller and Candace Goodall Architect.
Commission President John “Bud” O’Brien said that once renderings for a facility are obtained, a location can be sought.
The commissioners earlier this year met to discuss a proposed new facility for operations including the deputy registrar, the county auto tile department, the driver’s license exam station and the state salvage inspection station. The proposal is for a county owned building.
The commissioners last week also voted to reject a property donation to the county Animal Shelter and approved replacement of a bridge on the county’s reduced load list.
The commission voted April 12 to notify the attorney of the estate of one of two people who donated a Piqua property to the shelter through a transfer of death designation affidavit following their deaths as well as an attorney representing a mortgage company.
The commissioners, before their vote, said the rejection was due to amounts due on taxes, mortgage, foreclosure, sale and costs that likely would exceed the property value.
The commission April 10 agreed to receive bids May 3 on the replacement of the Greenville Falls-Clayton Road Bridge No. 02.03. The bridge needs replaced due to deterioration of its steel girders, the commissioners were told.
The estimated cost of replacement is $272,000 and will be paid through the county bridge levy funds.
Also approved were:
- The annual county roadside mowing contract with Quick Mow Inc. of Millersburg for $97,766.
- The hiring of two new telecommunicators for the county Communication Center. Destiny Brown and Stephanie Ruby were hired at a pay rate of $17.98 per hour.
