Adair Fiscal Court first February 2021 meeting report
Coverage by Vicky Pike
Nine people were in the audience at the first Adair County Fiscal Court meeting in February. Revenue options were on the agenda for the second time. The public had assumed taxes would be added but after hearing from constituents the Magistrates said they'd decided not to do so at this time.
As a way to begin cutting costs, they voted to close the Adair County Recycling Center after reportedly having lost $10,000 this budget year. They will move one of the employees from there to the road department where the road fund is in good shape. The position will be for litter pick up.
The costly lease for the transfer station is being compared to the possibility of the County locating the station on its own land when it comes up for renewal.
Fiscal Court meetings will continue to be held in the Jim Blair Center which allows for plenty of space to hold meetings open to the public during the pandemic. The decision was to hold it there at least through June. Meeting times and dates will continue to be the same, second Tuesday and last Tuesday of each month.
Those present included AC Judge Executive Cowan; and Magistrates Reeder, Flatt, Burton, Baker, Coffey, and Hadley. Greg Caldwell was absent due to the death of his mother. Also present were the Sheriff, Jailor, County Attorney, Fiscal Court Clerk, Treasurer, and Green River Animal Shelter Director.
Emergency Management Director Mike Keltner came in on call to fix technical problems which prevented hearing over the internet for the first part of the meeting. He repaired the sound and posted that he'd been at work preparing for the coming storm. The sound worked so the public comments time could be heard as well as comments posted on the screen.
The meeting is available on the Adair Fiscal Court's Facebook page.
