Crooked Lake resident Deb Englehardt again addressed Barry County Commissioners on the lake flooding, saying it seems that lake resident’s pleas for help have fallen on deaf ears. “What I have to say has not changed,” she said. For the last month the water has remained the same at five feet over the lake’s limit, she said. “We are not moving fast enough. I urge you to help…”
On the same topic, Deputy Drain Commissioner Tammy Berdecia said Thursday she was scheduled to talk later in the day to property owners who may provide land that will bring a permanent solution to Crooked Lake flooding.
In other business at Tuesday's meeting, commissioners approved:
*buying a commercial dishwasher and convection oven for the county jail kitchen for $23,743.30.
*form 2018L-4029 to allow the collection of winter taxes
*transferring the title of a 1989 truck utility/vehicle to Barry County at the request of the Law Enforcement Support Office, the agency that originally gave the vehicle to the county.
*an amendment to the airport budget that reduces expenditures by $6,300 to reflect the terms in the revised airport management service agreement.
