Fiscal Court recap of October 12, 2021 meeting
By Adair County Judge Executive Gale Cowan
The Adair County Fiscal Court met in regular session on Tuesday night at the Jim Blair Recreation Center. Normal business items were discussed with several action items brought up as well.
Approved two Extension District Appointments: Amy Thompson-Wells was reappointed for another three year term to begin in January 2022 and Barry Smith was appointed to a three year term beginning January 2022 to replace Ben Loy who had served his maximum term limit.
Approved two Library Board Appointments: Mary Knight was reappointed for a four year term beginning October 2021 and Betty Knifley was appointed to a four year term beginning October 2021 to replace J.D. Zornes who has served his maximum term limit.
Fiscal Court approved the purchase of two cars for the Adair County Sheriff's Office.
Approved applying for the 2022 Litter Abatement Grant.
Approved using $166,000 of the federal ARPA funds for a Duo Broadband Project. This project is an $11M project that will include portions of Adair, Casey, and Taylor. This will be contingent on Duo County receiving a grant for the project.
Judge Cowan asked the fiscal court for approval to proceed with trying to obtain state funding for renovations to the Adair County Courthouse. State Representative John "Bam" Carney had worked with Judge Cowan to begin this process before he became sick. This request has to be presented by our Representative so it was put on hold. If you talk to members of the community, you get different views on should we try to restore or should we tear it down. The original building is on the National Historic Registry and can not be torn down. It is my goal to try and obtain state funding to remove the additions that was added on in the '70s, renovate the original building, and make the Courthouse useable again.
