The Adair County Fiscal Court, meeting in a special session, moved ahead with approval of an amended ABC Ordinance, voted to approve the Administrative Office of the Courts Blue Form, authorized the County Judge Executive to advertise for bids for air conditioning for the Courthouse Annex and Green River Animal Shelter, and to advertise for bids for a 10 ton dump truck and to purchase a 7-ft Bushhog for the Road Department.
The court took no action on the 2016-2017 proposed County Budget, however, pending a called Budget Committee Meeting scheduled for next week.
Sunday Sales nixed in Alcoholic Beverage Sales Ordinance
The Alcoholic Beverage Sales ordinance had been drafted with provisions for Sunday sales. However, that draft was amended to eliminate Sunday Sales and then passed, 7-0, with all Magistrates, Harold Burton (District 1) Daryl Flatt (2), Sammy Baker (3), Perry Reeder (4), Billy Dean Coffey (5), Greg Caldwell (6), and Terry Hadley (7), voting to approve the first reading.
Two copies of the ABC ordinance were presented. The first, to allow Sunday sales from 1pm-5pmCT, was recommended on a motion by Judge Stephens, with a second by Terry Hadley (7), and received a third vote from Greg Caldwell on the vote, but lost 5-3 as Harold Burton (1), Daryl Flatt (2), Sammy Baker (3), Perry Reeder (4), and Billy Dean Cofffey (5) voted against Sunday Sales.
Daryl Flatt said Friday morning that he is still willing to consider Sunday sales, if that is what the people want. "I want people to call me and tell me their preference. I would like for my vote to reflect what the majority in my district think on the subject."
CJE Mike Stephens said, before the meeting, that he expects malt beverage sales to begin as early as May 22, 2016, and that at least three, as yet unnamed vendors are ready to apply for malt beverage sales as soon as the ordinances are approved.
County will advertise for air conditioning units
The court unanimously agreed to have the CJE's office advertise for air conditioning units for the Adair Annex and for the Green River Animal Shelter. The court was told that the estimated cost of the Annex unit is $5,000 and for the animal shelter, $4,000. Judge Stephens said, after the meeting, that the amounts were small enough that bids were not necessary. "However," he said, "we have a number of qualified HVAC vendors, and we felt it would be fair for all to take bids.:
Court authorizes advertising for bids for truck
The court unanimously agreed to have Judge Executive Michael Stephens advertise for bids for a 10 ton dump truck.
Court votes to buy Rotary Cutter (Bushhog like equipment)
The court voted to buy a Landpride Rotary cutter from Hobdy, Dye, and Read, Columbia, whose bid was $5,695. The only other quote was from G & G Motors, for a Rhino HD 7 ft rotary cutter, for $6,100.
Meeting well attended
The meeting was well attended with members of the media present (CM report from post meeting interviews), all members of Fiscal Court, the Adair County Attorney, Jennifer Hutchison-Corbin, County Treasurer Barry Corbin, Adair County Jailer Joey White, and at least six citizens in the audience.
