Commissioners To Hear Courtroom Replacement Table Talk, Financing Program For Road/Bridge Repairs From March Floods

WAYNE – For the second time in April, the Wayne County Board of Commissioners will hold their regularly scheduled meeting.

On April 16 at 9 am., the Wayne County Board of Equalization will first open from the Wayne County Courthouse courtroom. The group will look to take action on acceleration of 2019 taxes for DV Frye Tech.

Moving into the commissioners meeting, both the District & County Judge will be in attendance to talk about replacement of tables in the courtroom.

Wayne County Emergency Manager Nic Kemnitz will then provide an update on emergency management.

The D.A. Davison financing program for road and bridge repairs needed due to the recent flooding will be another top of discussion. The program includes both short-term financing pending federal or state recovery funds as well as long-term financing that may be a requirement as a local match for recovery funds.

The board will also go over any additions and the language changes to the Road Haul Agreement for Plum Creek Wind project while opening and taking action on bids for a new tri-axle dump truck.

Along with road/bridge project updates from Highway Superintendent, Mark Casey will update the board on a request made to NEMA for improved project on 574th Ave at Spahr culvert, bridge inspections which are due in April/May, review EWP program information received from NRCS as well as reviewing and taking action on an utility line application.
