Cass Co. Supervisors to act on temporary road closure


August 30th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

The Cass County Board of Supervisors will meet Friday morning, in Atlantic. During their 9-a.m. session at the courthouse, the Board will receive a report from Public Safety Committee Chair Steve Livengood, with regard to relocation of the Public Safety/Communications Center. Last October, the Supervisors gave permission for Livengood to begin a fact-finding mission in advance of a possible, future expansion and/or relocation of the County Communications Center.

Livengood said the reason the Commission wants to explore all the options, is because the Comm Center…located in the basement of the Courthouse, is beginning to run out of room, and future equipment needs are likely to press the space to the limit. In other business, the Cass County Board of Supervisors will discuss and possibly act on the temporary closure of roads near the Atlantic Municipal Airport, in preparation for the September 15th “Fly Iowa Heritage and Homecoming Show.”

The Board will also act on authoring Board Chair Duane McFadden to sign the final Iowa DOT contract construction voucher with Henningsen Construction, as it pertains to a resurfacing project on County road M-56, north of Marne. They’ll also act on a resolution for a public hearing on the vacating of a portion of 662nd Lane (Benton Township/Section 7), and, act on appointing a member and alternate to the Southwest Iowa Mental Health Planning Committee.

At 10:30-a.m., the Board will discuss an economic development project in the Amaizing Energy Urban Renewal Area, with guest Kathy Schowalter, from Planscape Partners.
