The Cherokee County Board of Supervisors meet for their regular meeting on October 14th.
Barb Staver of the Cherokee County Sheriff's Department gave the Sheriff's Department's quarterly revenue statement. The Sheriff's Department collected and handed over to the county treasures office $15,944.
The Board heard the request of property owner Tim Carlson to have his property de-annexed from the Cherokee City limits. Carlson informed the Board that four years earlier his neighbors were annexed from the city and his property wasn't part of that annexation.
Carlson felt that his property must have "fallen through the cracks." His request for annexation is due to lack of services such as water, sewer and garbage from the City. The Board supported Carlson's request for de-annexation. Carlson now has to go through the City to have his property de-annexed, but he wanted to give the County a "heads up" on the situation.
Other business on the Board's agenda was the approval of Resolution #2008-06, a tax abatement in one of the 32 enterprise zones in the county for the proposed expansion of the Hy-Vee Distribution Center.
Mary Jenness, Assistant to the County Engineer, brought forth a final payment voucher to the Board to sign for the C-16 road project. Chairman Simonsen signed the voucher.
