Cass County Commissioners meet
By Bethany Bashioum
Two Cass County Commissioner meetings were held Nov. 13 and 14.
The Commissioners were expected to discuss in greater detail a possible contract with Finley Engineering for voice, video and data service Nov. 14.
Due to a technical computer mistake, Melissa Freeman, interim broadband director said, Cass County Attorney Paul Campo had not received adequate time to review the details of the proposal.
Commissioners decided to table the agenda item.
The Commission previously made a request for qualifications to discuss how much revenue can be made from the project.
In other Commissioner business during the Nov. 14 meeting, the board took the following action:
-Approved a budget transfer to pay the county’s final EATS bill to cover a $9,000 shortfall.
County Treasurer Steve Cheslik suggested to the commissioner to look at increasing the EATS budget from $675,000 to about $700,000-$750,000 in the upcoming budget year.
-The commission signed a letter of support for the ESG program grant for Hope Haven.
-Presiding Commissioner Terry Wilson signed an affidavit of work authorization, an annual renewal document for the county’s health department.
-Approved a list of 2013 holidays for county employees.
During the Nov. 13 meeting, the board approved a zoning application from Craig and Wanda Cox, requesting a zoning classification change from commercial to residential-rural, on the east side of State Rt. D in Belton within the Hel-Go Estates.
-Accepted paperwork from Coffelt Land Title from the sale of the old Harrisonville hospital property.
