Fiscal Court second November meeting - REPORT

The second Adair County fiscal court meeting of the month, held Tuesday, November 26, 2019, was a brief one according to Judge Executive Gale Cowan.

A final decision was made on the question of who will maintain the LBN Parkway overpasses and underpasses - the State will continue to maintain these areas.

She said the court voted to sell the two present Mack trucks, pay off any debt on them, and then buy one.

Panhandling was a topic of concern at this meeting.

Both Judge Cowan and Sheriff Josh Brockman reported experiencing multiple calls requesting something be done about people trying to get money from them in public places.

The magistrates discussed options and decided to gather information about what the County can legally do. Attorney Jennifer Hutchison-Corbin was not at the meeting so they will follow up by asking her to advise them before action is taken.

All Magistrates were present except for Chris Reeder.

Adair County Fiscal Court meets each second Tuesday at 6pmCT and also on the last Tuesday of each month at 4pmCT in the Adair County Annex Basement, 424 Public Square, Columbia. All meetings are open to the public.
