Commissioner
John R. Hamercheck


The Board of Lake County Commissioners has both quasi-legislative and quasi-administrative powers and through resolutions adopted during their regular weekly meeting, sets the administrative policy for county government. While the Commissioners have no power to initiate legislation, they do exercise powers granted to them by the Ohio General Assembly through state law.

The Commissioners are responsible for the appropriations of the county tax revenues through the adoption of the annual county budget. The County operates on a January 1 through December 31 fiscal year and must adopt the final budget no later than April 1 of each year. The budget includes appropriations for the numerous county offices, including those offices headed by other elected officials. The Commissioners have the power to levy taxes and to approve the placement of tax levies and bond issues on the ballot for consideration by county voters. The Commissioners also administer all federal grant monies.

The Commissioners hold title to all county owned property and are responsible for the upkeep. By law, they must provide office space for all county offices. They must build the facilities necessary to house various offices such as the Courtrooms, the Jail, Engineer's facilities and parking. The Commissioners award all contracts for purchase and construction projects.

    With the early snow fall this year, the Lake County Engineer's Office decided that it is a good time to remind residents living on County maintained roads of the mailbox replacement policy.  Many years ago, the Engineer's Office routinely repaired or replaced all mailboxes damaged during the winter snow removal process.  Unfortunately, this process proved to be costly when the time required for repairs combined with smaller work forces and increased prices for materials were examined. A revised policy was adopted in January of 2013.

    LAKE COUNTY GENERAL HEALTH DISTRICT HAS MOVED

     

    On December 1, 2014, Lake County General Health District (LCGHD) will have moved from the Lake County Administration Building to its temporary “permanent” location at Victoria Place located at One Victoria Square, Painesville, Ohio 44077. 

     

    Deputy Health Commissioner Ron H. Graham stated, “This move is the culmination of the hard work and charity of so many, including the Lake County Commissioners, the City of Painesville, our partners, and our dedicated staff.  The move represents a critical step in our ongoing recovery from the building fire and providing essential services to our public consumers.”

     

    LCGHD will begin to hold classes, clinics and other programs that were recently put on hold due to the devastating fire that took place at its facility located at 33 Mill Street in Painesville on August 20, 2014.  The most up to date programming information will be available on LCGHD’s Facebook (Lake County General Health District) and Twitter (LCHealthDist) social media sites and website (lcghd.org).  LCGHD may also be reached at the following telephone numbers:

    LAKE COUNTY ENGINEER SALT POLICY 2014-2015

    Salt costs are continuing to impact the County Engineer’s efforts to maintain roads this winter.  In fact, as recently reported in the media, the prices for salt have increased almost three times those of last year.  The Lake County Engineer’s Office is responsible for over 304 lane miles of County Roads and 110 lane miles along SR 2 from the Cuyahoga County line to the US 20/SR 2 split in Perry Township.  We also plow the roads for North Perry Village.  There are a maximum of thirteen snowplow trucks on the County Road system and five snowplow trucks on SR 2.  Our crews use a combination of treated and untreated salt, Beet Heet (an agricultural additive mixed with the salt) and/or cinder materials to maintain the freeway and County highway system.

    High salt costs require us to revise our salting and deicing procedures.
      When conditions are dry leading up to a storm event, the County will apply anti-icing material on all of the ramps and mainline of SR 2 in the County’s maintenance area.  The material is not effective and cannot be applied if the pavement is already wet or rain is expected prior to switching over to snow.
