The Cherokee County Board of Supervisors held a roll call vote on Tuesday to adopt resolution #2009-10.
With all 'ayes' votes, a special election was called for the public to authorize Cherokee County to construct, equip and furnish a new County Jail and County Law Enforcement Center, including Sheriff's offices and a 911 emergency communication facility, at a total cost not exceeding $3,750,000, and issue its General Obligation Capital Loan Notes in an amount not exceeding $3,500,000 for that purpose.
That election will be held on Aug. 4.
In other business, the Board met with Tom Rutter and Scot Weber of Central Insurance for the county insurance renewal. Premiums cost for the county insurance was down due to the fact of workman comp claims in the county were down. The Board attributed this fact to all the safety meetings that have been conducted for and by county department heads.
Also, the Board approved the request of County Engineer Dave Shanahan on two driveway permits and then discussed road maintenance for the county, including different ways to do crack filling on county roads.
The Board also accepted the resignation of Jim Warrender, Cherokee County Veteran Affairs Commissioner after 20 years of services.
The Board also set a date for the annual public Supervisors picnic for July 7 at the main shelter house at Koser-Spring Lake Park from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
