Cass County BOS Meeting
September 28th, 2012 by Doug Evans
The Cass County Board of Supervisors had their final September meeting Friday morning at the Cass County Courthouse.
The Board heard from Cass County Attorney Dan Feistner and unanimously approved hiring Deb Church as a temporary office assistant for a few weeks until they get a final hire done. Feistner explained that she’s been a tremendous help and typically comes in a couple of days each week.
The Supervisors then heard from Cass County Engineer Charles Marker. He provided the Board with an update on the various projects the Secondary Roads Department is handling. He says they recently sent out proposals to construct a bridge at the intersection of G43 and N28 just north of Cumberland. They hope to have a bid on that project from a contractor soon.
Marker also says they have begun spraying weeds on county roads. He says they’re trying to cover as much ground as possible but they do have 750 miles of road left to spray in the county. According to Marker, they used to be able to hire a contractor to do the work about 10 years ago but because of finances they are no longer able to hire contractors, which is why the County is seeing 10 years worth of growth on the roads. He says they hopefully might be able to have some of the farmers take up the responsibility.
