Adair County Fiscal Court Recap, August 10
By Gale B. Cowan
Adair County Judge Executive
The Adair County Fiscal Court met in a lengthy regular called fiscal court meeting on Tuesday night. Regular monthly items were addressed along with several Action Items on the agenda.
The Fiscal Court voted to amend the 2021 Sheriff's Salary Allotment and amended the Sheriff's budget to be able to hire 1 additional deputy to assist the Sheriff's Department
- Approved the Sheriff's 2020 Tax Settlement.
- Approved second reading and adopted an ordinance to amend the Jail Fees, raising the booking fees from $25.00 to $50.00
- Set the county tax rates... tax rates were left the same as last year... Real Property 14.5%, Personal Property 18.15%, water craft and motor vehicle at 11.20%
- The Court approved a $1.50 per hour raise for full time employees and $1.00 per hour raise for part time employees.
- A resolution was presented to pay employees "essential pay" from ARPA funds but was tabled until some further questions could be answered.
- The Animal Ordinance was brought up but after a long heated discussion the county attorney will make recommended changes and this will be brought up at a later date.
Some magistrates had brought up if we should consider moving our meetings back to the Jim Blair Center due to the rise in COVID cases. The court approved this recommendation and beginning with our next meeting on August 31, 2021, Adair County Fiscal Court meetings will be held back at the Jim Blair Center, 901 Hudson Street, Columbia. Some have said it's hard to hear everyone at this location, so we will see about moving microphones to the center.
