The meeting was brief. Commissioners voted to send a thank you letter to Linda Morse for her years of service on the Manhattan Urban Area Planning Board. John Ball was appointed to the position formerly held by Morse.
Community Corrections Director Shelly Williams presented the County’s FY 2016 Kansas Department of Corrections Adult and Juvenile Services Comprehensive Plan Grant Applications. The Plans contain cuts in staffing and services in anticipation of funding reductions.
Counselor Clancy Holeman mentioned a bill dealing with a county’s requirements in seeking competitive bids. The measure would set the requirement to request bids for projects costing $15,000 or more. That bill, however, reportedly has been amended into a controversial measure dealing with annexation that may run into trouble gaining legislative approval.
