Commissioners table resolution to set fees for special events
by Dennis Sharkey
Jefferson County Commissioners tabled the only item of new business brought before them on Monday.
It was a county resolution that would set the fee for cereal malt beverage licenses for special events.
County Clerk Linda Buttron said the fee could be set anywhere between $25 and $100 per event.
Commissioners briefly considered a $50 fee but then opted to table the matter to see what other counties are setting their fees at.
• County Road and Bridge Director Francis Hubbard reported that the bridge on 154th Street just east of Ferguson Road is now open for traffic.
• Second District Commissioner Roy Dunnaway asked Hubbard to inquire about installing rumble strips on south Ferguson Road approaching U.S. 24 Highway. Dunnaway wanted to know about if something similar to what was recently installed on both sides of the Ferguson Road approach to K-92 Highway.
• Commissioners talked with Planning and Zoning Director Bill Noll about conditional use permits for home day-care operators.
Noll said some of the Planning and Zoning Commissioners do not think it is necessary for the county to issue the permits because day-care operators are inspected by the state.
However, First District Commissioner Lynn Luck said she would like to leave the process in place because it alerts neighbors.
• Commissioners signed the papers for the financing of the new ambulance substation in Meriden.
• Commissioners will not meet this Monday because of the Memorial Day holiday.
