Alfalfa County commissioners appropriate funds


Spring was in the air Monday morning when commissioners in Alfalfa County met for their weekly meeting. With a pretty easy agenda in front of them, Jay Hague, Stan Tucker and Marvin Woodall began by deviating slightly from the usual orders of business to approve a new account for Alfalfa County Treasurer Valerie Vetter (who was present as well). The account is to be called 2019 Protest Tax with Vetter, Donna Irvin, and Melissa Colvin designated as signers. After that, the guys got back on schedule and approved maintenance and operation payment warrants, monthly officer reports, previous meeting minutes, monthly highway expenditures, and blanket purchase orders. Commissioners declared surplus on a John Deere CX15 Flex-Wing mower (Inv. no. 441-319, Serial no. 1POCX15ETGD046506) and a John Deere 6135E tractor (Invoice no. 304-318, Serial no. 1PO6135EAG0001186) and voted to take them to Sturgeon's Tractor and Truck Sales for an Apr. 6 public auction.

A document transfer from District 2 to the fairgrounds was made on a '04 International dump truck (Invoice no. D2 302-219, Serial no. 1HTWDAAN74JO85372), before the group moved on to talk about the savings they've incurred with Troy & Banks (a professional cost management and consulting firm that specializes in reducing utility and telecommunication expenses). Commissioners had to decide which account the savings could be paid from. Finally, the interlocal cooperation agreement between the City of Cherokee and Alfalfa County was signed off on and passed through.
