Henry Co. commissioner trial set

NAPOLEON — A jury trial date of July 9 was set Monday in Henry County Common Pleas court for a former county commissioner charged with having an unlawful interest in a contract.

Visiting Judge Randall Basinger set the date for Richard Myers, 63, of Liberty Center. Mr. Myers, a Democrat who lost his bid for re-election in November, is accused of loaning $25,000 of his own money to a specialty-car company interested in moving to Henry County from Decatur, Ind., in 2009.

Mr. Myers allegedly convinced his fellow commissioners to award a $300,000 grant to the company but didn’t disclose his investment in the company. The company did not move to Henry County, and the county did not recoup the $300,000.
