Adair Fiscal Court Meeting March, 2021 - Report

Adair County Fiscal Court met March 9, 2021 at the Jim Blair Center instead of the Courthouse Annex in order to allow extra space for social distancing and avoid crowding.

Recycling and roadside cleanup were on the agenda. Bridget Compton, Solid Waste Coordinator, asked the Magistrates to decide whether to apply for either of two grants available - the Hazardous Household Waste and E-scrap Grant which the court granted permission to go ahead and apply for, and a recycling grant which they declined due to the uncertain future of the Recycling Center.

Will non-profit organizations clean roadsides for $50 per mile?


Thatís what ACJE Cowan proposed and the court approved completing details and dates to be announced for cleanup in March and April. The money would come from litter abatement, already set aside. The county will provide trash bags and plastic gloves. Preregistration is required.

Sheriff Josh Brockman gave his report. He had asked to be able to keep a portion of the taxes his office collected to be designated for his office and had been granted that request, however, that is not going to happen. After giving its approval at the last meeting the court had to rescind the offer due to state regulations.

Neal Gold, Board Chair, provided an update on the Hospital District tax at the first Adair County Fiscal Court meeting of March 2021. He shared the progress, stating that the board bids the money amount to get the best interest as they manage tax receipts and make payments on the debt. He projects the debt will be paid off in the year 2026 at which time the court may want to abolish the tax or reassign it to pay for other needs of the county. Board appointments approved were David Herbst and Neal Gold.

At Terry Partinís resignation, the Court appointed Jason Grider to fill his position on the Adair County Extension Board.

The 911 Dispatcher age qualification was lowered from 21 to 20.

An update was provided on the historic Adair County Courthouse damaged in February and information is being gathered along with bids for repairs. The company that owns the truck which hit the building has asked to pay for the damage outright rather than running it through their insurance.
