Adair County Fiscal Court meeting, Tue 11 Apr 2017 - 4-3 vote sewer project
Court votes 4-3 to fund bores for GRCP sewer project after spirited debate. Magistrate Daryl Flatt, court's most outspoken spending critic, receives support from only two more court members, and measure to fund additional costs at the industrial park is approved.
By Ed Waggener
By a narrow vote, the Adair County Fiscal Court, in its April 11, 2017 regular session, voted to fund its share of an additional cost for the Green River Commerce Park sewer project, completing the approval of the four participating funders: The Columbia/Adair County Economic Development Authority (CACEDA), The City of Columbia, Asssisted Transportation Systems/Rob Wilkerson, and Fiscal Court.
The cost of the bore project has been estimated by Columbia/Adair Utilities District as $10,000-$12,000. It will involve three bores under the entrance street rather than have three open trenches dug. The original contract was to have included open trenches, fills, and road patches.
CACEDA chair Mark Dykes presented the request.
Magistrate Daryl Flatt opposed paying the addition, and asked how much cash CACEDA has on hand. Mr. Dykes told him that the balance is in excess of $160,000. Mr. Flatt gave the opinion that cash strapped county government should not be asked for more.
Magistrate Sammy Baker, agreed with the budget situation, but said that the relatively small amount was worth it.
Magistrate Flatt asked, "Where will the money come from"? and Magistrate Baker answered, "We'll find the money." On a roll call vote, Magistrate Baker (District 30 was joined by Magistrates Harold Burton (1), Perry Reeder (4), and Greg Caldwell (6), for four yes votes. Magistrate Flatt (2) was joined by Terry Hadley (7) and session presiding officer Magistrate Billy Dean Coffey (5).
