Financial decisions took center stage for Allen County commissioners Tuesday morning.
First, they spent $154,000 to place security cameras 28 total in and near the courthouse, including nearly $18,000 to erect security cameras at Humboldt Elementary School. Next, they agreed to fund operations at the Bowlus Fine Arts Center with a levy of 1 mill annually. For the 2018-2019 Bowlus budget that will amount to $141,000.
Kay Lewis, superintendent of USD 258 (Humboldt) schools told commissioners the elementary installation completed a photographic circle of security, with adequate camera coverage already in place at the middle and high schools.
