3 months ago
The Adams County Board approved the annual motor fuel tax bids at Monday's meeting.
The bids, worth more than $1.2 million, will cover both the county and township highway monies. Les Post, Adams County Board Chairman, said the township will use the funds for mostly gravel and patching blacktops.
In other business, Finance Committee member John Heidbreder asked Steve Rowlands, director of the Quincy/Adams County 911 system, questions about the balance in the wireless fund. Rowlands explained where the money came from and that they plan to replace equipment in the 911 dispatch center in the upcoming years.
The board also approved a contract with Klingner and Associates for bridge improvements on County Highway 7 over Bear Creek.
The board requested that the Department of Agriculture hold a public meeting on the proposed confined animal feeding operation that applied
for a permit in the Lima area.
“Hopefully by the end of the week we’ll have a meeting date,” said Post. “We’re thinking maybe the first part of March.”
