13, 2012 Monday 9:00 am
- The Bourbon County Commission
met in open session with all commissioners and the county clerk present.
Minutes of the previous meeting were read and approved.
- Marty Pearson gave a road
- Mark Shead was present.
- Commissioners discussed the
fence viewing from last Friday. Harold Coleman made a motion to issue the
following decision on the fence viewing:
- The north portion of the
fence, beginning at the NW corner of Section 22, Township 25, Range 22,
traveling South approximately 1,320 feet, shall be the responsibility of
Cody J. Isaac. The south portion of the fence, beginning at the SW corner
of the NW ¼ of Section 22, Township 25, Range 22, traveling South
approximately 1,320 feet, shall be the responsibility of Richard K. and
Beverly J. Barr. Each individual shall be responsible for all costs incurred for
construction and repair to their portion of fence.
- Jingles Endicott seconded the
motion and both Coleman and Endicott voted in favor. Commissioner Warren
abstained, due to familial connections. Motion carried. Additional
information to add in the decision was: As no survey has been conducted
of the properties, we highly suggest that, prior to any fence
construction, a survey be made of the property lines, with the cost of the
survey shared equally between both parties.
- Allen Warren asked Joanne Long
to modify the agenda to list the types of executive sessions allowed.
- Joanne Long asked
commissioners how much money to transfer from the General Fund to the
Sewer Construction Fund. Commissioners don’t have a figure at this time.
- Terri Johnson met with
commissioners to discuss the Sewer District. She asked that the
commissioners request a list of those who have a grinder pump set, but are
NOT connected from the house to the grinder pump. She said that there are
a lot of lists going around, but that we need one official listing. The
commissioners can request that information from Tom McNeil and/or Mark
Houser. She also says we need to know who’s got a grinder pump set, and
will be paying debt repayment, but will not be paying sewer fees, as the
City will need that.
- Dan Meara here met with
commissioners with a tax sale update. Terri Johnson and Susan Quick were
present. Mr. Meara and Mrs. Johnson just met with the judge about those
cases that were contested. He’s preparing journal entries for those that
are ready to sell, and, once the judge signs off of them, they can be
published and then sold (once a week for three weeks, plus 10 days). That
will consist of about half of the properties on the list. Unfortunately,
that means we won’t be able to have a sale in February like we thought.
He can have the notice of sale printed in February. Mr. Meara apologized
to commissioners that he can’t have a sale in February. Allen Warren
asked Mr. Meara about the press release about the sale process, as was
discussed in January, explaining the process in layman’s terms, so the
public can understand. He will do that.
- Ann Gilmore-Hoffman stopped in
to introduce herself to the commissioners, if they don’t know her. She
explained that she’s heavily involved in the animal shelter. It will be
open soon. She asked commissioners about helping with signage for the
shelter. The commissioners explained that any signs on US 69 Hwy will
have to be approved through KDOT and advised her to speak with Norval
Schnichels about that. They did say that they would allow signs on
Jayhawk/Catt School Road, on County rights-of-way, and would place them,
if the animal shelter bought them.
- After routine business, the
meeting adjourned at noon.
