The Cass County Board of Supervisors Wednesday, are expected to act on a handful of matters to come before them. One is approval of a flow-through application for a Multi-Family New Construction Project in Woodbine, whereby Cass County is the Local Government Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Disaster Recovery Recipient.

Other action items include approval of an office equipment item for the County Recorder’s Office, and revisions to the County’s burial and cell phone policies. During their meeting last week, the Board opted to take under consideration, proposals for changing the County’s Indigent Burial Policy. The proposals included: adding a cremation alternative with a maximum contribution by the County of $1,500; Changing the maximum payable amount for a burial to $2,000; and, setting the maximum costs for a grave opening, at $550.

The Supervisor’s meeting begins at 9-a.m., in their board room at the Cass County Courthouse in Atlantic.
