Tuesday Supervisors Meeting

Written by on January 22, 2013 in News

The Tuesday morning Henry County Supervisors meeting started at 9 am this morning with Engineer Bill Belzer providing a secondary roads update.  He reported of a bridge closure on Quaker Avenue northeast of Winfield.  It is due to damaged pilings that weaken the structural integrity.  Work should begin in the next month to make the repairs and the bridge should be open again this year.  Belzer also brought before the Board a 28E agreement for the Iowa Avenue project.  The project includes an asphalt overlay and new bridge approaches.  Henry County is in charge of the design and inspection with the city of Mt. Pleasant responsible for their portion of construction.  Henry County will be responsible for around $659,000 with Mt. Pleasant’s tab in the $60,000 mark.  The joint agreement was approved by the Supervisors and the project has been sent to the state who will have bid letting in April.  Ron Osborne approved before the board with some concerns regarding the Jewel Avenue project.  He feels that the seal coating project will not be beneficial to the road and also had concerns about transparency documenting and discussing the issue on agendas.  The Henry County Public Health and Recorder budget were presented.  A lease agreement was signed on the land the county leases to Alan Settles.  A change had to be made after a portion was sold.  The Supervisors also approved the purchase an AED system that will be mounted on the second floor of the court house.  Employees can voluntarily train for the system.
