The Delaware County Board of Supervisors is preparing for a big year for the County.
The County will be moving some offices to the soon-to-be vacant Community Savings Bank building across the street and they’re hoping to have a new jail and Sheriff’s Office up and running by the end of the year.
Jeff Madlom, who has been elected as this year’s Board Chairperson, says they’re looking forward to everything to come in 2020.
For fellow Supervisor Pete Buschmann, 2020’s goals are personal. As he enters his fourth year on the board, Buschmann tells KMCH he’s finally feeling comfortable in the position.
Supervisor Shirley Helmrichs says 2019 was a tough year for a lot of people in Delaware County, so she’s reflecting on the good and looking forward to a promising year.
The Delaware County Board of Supervisors held their second meeting of the new year on Monday. The Board reviewed a petition to vacate streets and alleys on the west side of Highway 38 in Sand Springs – the County Secondary Roads Department will come back to the Board with a possible plan of moving forward with that action. The Board also heard a presentation from Solutions, Inc. regarding software services for the County. And the Board proclaimed January as National Mentoring Month after a request by Helping Services of Iowa.
