Fiscal Court meeting recap
By Gale B. Cowan
Adair County Judge Executive
The Adair County Fiscal Court met in regular session on Tuesday, July 27, 2021 in the basement of the Adair Co. Annex Building.
The Fiscal Court approved normal business items such as approving of minutes, bills for payment, and budget transfers.
They heard from Bobby Morrison and Mark Dykes from the Economic Development Board who explained projects going on at the Industrial Park on Highway 55 and they also requested the next 3 years of TVA funds be allocated to the Economic Development Board. This is money that comes from the State to be allocated to an Industrial Authority. This request was approved by the court.
They approved a request from Jailer Richard on a CHIRP agreement.
This is a program that will allow inmates to go into an agreement with Combined Communications who already has the contract for the inmate telephone system. This will be at no cost to the county but the jail will receive a minimal revenue from the program. This will allow inmates to text and communicate with family members (all text will be monitored).
The fiscal court also gave permission for Judge Cowan to sign a COVID Utility Assistance Grant Award Letter. This is a $200,000 pass through CDBG grant that is being administered by the ADD District. Residents will be able to apply for funds to help pay past due utility bills due to COVID. If awarded, the money will go directly to the Utility Companies to pay on past due bills. (more info will be made available at a later date).
Hired 2 part time employees for the Adair Co. 911 Center...Kelsey Brizendine and Lori Rineholt.
