Cass County Supervisors to discuss future of the Public Safety Center


October 28th, 2011 by Ric Hanson

The Cass County Board of Supervisors will meet Monday morning at the Courthouse, in Atlantic. During the 9-a.m. session, the Board will hear a tourism report from Kenner Baxter, with the Western Iowa Tourism Council/Region 1. They’ll also discuss a Continuity of Government (COG) Plan , which would allow the local government to continue its essential operations, should a catastrophic event occur. And, a Continuity of Operations Plan (COOP).  COOP is a Federal initiative, required by Presidential directive, designed to ensure that agencies are able to continue performance of essential functions under a broad range of circumstances.

The Supervisors are also slated to discuss the future of the County’s Public Safety Communications Center, including a potential relocation of the Comm. Center. Other county business includes discussion and possible action on: a revision to the County government’s cell phone policy; a revision to the indigent burial policy; approving renewal of a third party administrative contract for partial self-funded health insurance, as it pertains to County employees, and a management contract for the courthouse boiler or boilers.
