The Cherokee County Board of Supervisors approved the purchase of $8,000 worth of computer software for the county attorney's office, with 80 percent of the cost to be paid for by a federal grant.
Ryan Kolpin, county attorney, urged the supervisors to act quickly on the matter since the deadline for receiving the supporting grant money is Sept. 30.
Kolpin explained that the software is designed to save staff time, particularly the document creating feature, that incorporates input data into standard documents.
Kolpin went over details with the supervisors of the lease of county property by an ATV group.
The supervisors approved hog confinements at two properties -- one on section 12 in Tilden Township and one in section 13 of Diamond Township. The properties met the point requirements of the state's matrix formula that deals with environmental requirements.
The supervisors are now in their regular year meeting schedule which means weekly meetings rather than the twice monthly meetings of the summer schedule.
