Board hears from CRMC/Public Health

Tuesday, May 13, 2008

The Cherokee County Board of Supervisors met at the lower level of the Cherokee County Courthouse for their regular meeting on Tuesday April 28.

The Board had a shortened agenda and first met with LeAnn Hammer and Connie Mohn of the Cherokee Regional Medical Center's Public Health, who presented the Board with their 2009 Local Health Service contract. They informed the Board that they applied for the same service and grants as last year and there would be no change in the agency or change of services.

The Board inquired if the agency had any needs or if there have been any complaints. Hammer and Mohn said there weren't.

Aimee Barritt, the county's Emergency Management Director, was scheduled to address the Board regarding sirens for county camping area, but canceled her meeting. It was reported that information that she was gathering on grant money was not available at the time of the Supervisors meeting.

Larry Clark, County Engineer, met with the Board and received approval of underground construction permits and discussed general county business with the Board.

There was no other business.

Prior to the start of the Supervisors meeting, the board had an informal discussion on the possibility of building a new county jail. Within the last year the Board has been doing preliminary work on a new jail. Last week the Board traveled to Denison to look at the new jail in Crawford County and the Board discussed what the jail needs of Cherokee County are and what type of designs would be prudent for the county.
