Cass Supervisors to hold final hearing on gun range-related ordinance


February 19th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

The second of two public hearings and votes on a change to the Cass County Zoning Ordinance will be held Wednesday morning, in Atlantic. The action takes place during a regular meeting of the Cass County Board of Supervisors, and would allow an indoor shooting range and/or a gun sales and service shop to be located within the County. The amended ordinance was unanimously approved during the first reading held during the Supervisor’s meeting, last week. Kevin McCunn, of Massena says he plans to open an indoor shooting range and gun sales/service shop near Massena this Spring, if the ordinance is adopted.

In other business, the Board will act on approving four applications:  Two for Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Multi-family Unit Production-New Construction Program, Round 5 grants; One for a CDBG Multi-family Unit Production- Round 5 grant; and one for a CDBG Multi-family Housing Application project Round 5 grant. The grants are being made available through 2008 Disaster Recovery Funding, and if approved, be administered through the Southwest Iowa Planning Council (SWIPCO).

The Cass County Supervisors will also act on a Resolution to approve an application for establishment of an enterprise zone, and on appointing a member to the Cass County Local Food Policy Council. Their meeting begins at 9-a.m., Wednesday.
