The Christian County Board is starting the process of getting a new air conditioning system after a motion was passed for the County Buildings Supervisor to seek bids for replacing the aging system. That was among the items covered at the Christian County Board meeting Tuesday night.
Becky Edwards is the Audit, Finance, and Purchasing Committee chairperson in Christian County. She says the County’s Buildings Supervisor is going to take it on himself to replace the 3rd floor air conditioner, and that the time to replace it is now.
She said because County Buildings Supervisor Zach Hicks is doing the project himself, they don’t have a clear idea what the project will cost at this point.
Another motion taken at the meeting was a stand against the federal prevailing wage law. Although it is required to pass under federal law, Edwards says the 8-6 vote is a way of showing the board’s displeasure for the law.
The next county board meeting is scheduled for July 18th at 6:30 p.m. in the county board room at the Christian County Courthouse.
