Cass Co. Board of Supervisors to meet Wed.


May 24th, 2011 by Ric Hanson

The Cass County Board of Supervisors are expected to act on several matters to be brought before them during their meeting Wednesday morning, here in Atlantic. During their 9-a.m. session, the board will receive and act on a funding request for an improvement project at the Cumberland Library.

They’re also expected to act on: approving funding for the County’s portion of sidewalk repairs in the Atlantic City Park; an integrated roadside vegetation management plan; and, a temporary suspension and/or abatement of taxes on parcels of land in or near Anita, with the stipulation the taxes will be payable when the property is transferred.

The board will also discuss funding for the northwest sewer and water extension project. During their meeting May 16th, the board approved the awarding of a contract for the project, which involves the laying of 3,200-feet of water and sewer lines from Highway 83 to the Amaizing Energy Industrial area, along Glacier Road, and underneath a railroad spur line.

The project, which it’s hoped will spark economic development in the areas, is expected to cost around $534,650. Atlantic Municipal Utilities will act as the flow-through agency for the funds.
