Cass/Adair Board of Supervisor’s meeting previews


October 4th, 2011 by Ric Hanson

The Adair and Cass County Board of Supervisors will meet Wednesday, in Greenfield and Atlantic, respectively. In Adair County, the Board will hear from Sheriff Brad Newton, with regard to the Public Safety Center, which is currently under construction. And, they hear from County Custodian Rich Wallace, with regard to correspondence from the City of Greenfield, pertaining to sidewalk issues.

In Atlantic, the Cass County Supervisors will receive a 1934 lithograph of the U-S Constitution, which the board approved at a meeting in mid-August. The framed and matted lithograph will be presented by Gary Stephenson, of Fort Dodge, and local sponsors, for display on the second floor of the courthouse. Stephenson is traveling through each of Iowa’s 99 Counties in hopes local officials will express an interest in having the lithographs displayed in the various 100 county courthouses in the state.

The Board will also act on awarding a bid and contract to Gus Construction for full-depth Portland Cement Concrete patching work on County Road G-61, east of Highway 148, as well as approval of plans for a Hot Melt Asphalt resurfacing project on Route M-56, from Marne to the Shelby County line. And, they’ll hear from a representative with the CAM Community School District, with regard to tax changes resulting from the construction of wind turbines in the district.

Both Board of Supervisor’s meetings begin at 9-a.m.
