County Board meeting

A number of St. Joseph County residents expressed concerns over a variety of subjects during Tuesday’s St. Joseph County Board of Commissioners meeting.

The focus of most comments revolved around potential plans to build a senior center in Sturgis and a proposal to market St. Joseph County as a retirement destination to retirees in the Chicago market.

Points were made by Florence Township resident Tim Carls, Rebecca Shank and Andrew Grant of Fabius Township, Lois Ware of Sturgis, Constantine’s Dan Lucas and Dennis Bohm of Nottawa Township, who said more candidates should have been interviewed before the job of county administrator was given to Pat Yoder.
