The Mitchell County Commissioners conducted their weekly meeting at the Courthouse Monday morning, March 13. All Commissioners were present for the business session.
First on the agenda was Kristin Kadel, assistant to Cortney Murrow, County Health Official. She presented the Commissioners with completed Regional Preparedness grant applications. This is annual activity. The total of the grant request was $49,000. Kadel commented, "We never get the requested amount. We will be lucky if we get half of the requested total, but half is better than none." The Commissioners expressed their appreciation for all the County Health Department contributes to the County and signed the grant applications.
Jenny Pechta, representing North Central Kansas CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate), was scheduled to appear and speak to the Commissioner regarding Child Abuse. She was not able to attend. She was expected to ask the Commissioners to declare the month of March as Child Abuse Awareness Month. She will be rescheduled for a later meeting.
Marty Hernandez, Superintendent of Public Works, was on hand to update the Commissioners on the status on things in his department. He told the Commissioners that the transition from the old County shop building to the new one was time consuming because of the volume to things to transport and put away in the new building in a way they can be found when needed.
A Neighborhood Revitalization Grant application was approved for Dalton Rothchild in the amount of $35,000 for a building remodel.
Having addressed all the items on the printed agenda, the meeting was adjourned.
