The Christian County Board Tuesday night acted on a number of motions made by various board committees.

Motions that the full board passed from the Audit, Finance and Purchase Committee included OK'ing the issuance of some 7-million dollars of bonds for construction at Pana Community Hospital, with the county as the pass-thru agent; they paid from their contingency fund, a nearly 2-thousand dollar bill for bond consultant work; and the board transferred funds to cover the 911 staff payroll while awaiting their monthly surcharge revenue from the state.

The board Tuesday night also appointed Daniel Bland of Pana and Andy Goodall of Taylorville, to the County's 911 Board.

The board will hold a special meeting December 27th at 6:30 in the evening in the Christian County Board room, to OK the payment of unemployment taxes for 2015 and 2016 before the end of this year.  This is a requirement for the county to go with a new unemployment insurance carrier, that will save the county some 24-percent in future unemployment insurance premiums.
