CONGRESSMAN WENSTRUP VISITS GREENFIELD, TOURS JOHNSON CONTROLS PLANT
Congressman Brad Wenstrup is a busy man, serving as a medical doctor and member of U.S. Army Reserves in addition to representing Ohio's Second Congressional District. He has made several visit to Greenfield in an effort to learn more about the needs of the community and to see what can be done to help bring jobs and economic development to southern Ohio.
In February 2014 Congressman Wenstrup and staff members visited Greenfield to meet with City Manager Ron Coffey and Councilwoman Brenda Losey about economic development and other issues. Rep. Wenstrup also took time to visit one of Greenfield's leading employers, Johnson Controls, where he learned about their busy seat-making operation for several popular models of vehicles. In the photo here, Congressman Wenstrup tours Johnson Controls with Plant Manager Dave Johnson.
In 2013 the Congressman toured McClain High School and learned about the legacy of Edward Lee McClain, enjoying the murals, statues, paintings and friezes that make McClain one of the most remarkable public schools in the nation.
"It is always a pleasure to spend time with our elected officials and show off some unique aspects of our community," said City Manager Coffey. "We look forward to continuing the dialogue and pursuing projects, such as our Greenfield Rail Line Improvement Project, that will help to create and preserve jobs in the region. We thank Rep. Wenstrup and his staff for their continuing interest in our 'Greene Countrie Towne.'"

COUNTY COURT ACCEPTING CREDIT CARD PAYMENTS
The Highland County Court in Greenfield is now accepting credit card payments as a convenience to the public. Traffic tickets and minor misdemeanor citations can be paid online by visiting www.greenfieldohtickets.com and entering the required information, including the ticket number or citation number, so that the money is applied to the proper case.
If there are questions about the amount due, of if someone wishes to make a payment on older cases, the clerk’s office can be contacted at 937-981-2139.
The court has a waiver schedule for many traffic offenses and most minor misdemeanors, and a call to the clerk’s office is the easiest way to confirm the waiver amount. If the full amount is not paid, a guilty waiver cannot be accepted and the Defendant is to appear in court.
In order for payments to be applied to older cases, the Defendant needs to provide identifying information so that the money is applied to the proper person and case(s).
There is also an 800 number that allows credit card payments to be made by phone: 1-800-701-8560.
Many courts around the country use the nCourt system. There is no cost to the courts using the system; the person making the payment is charged a convenience fee.
