The Christian County Board met on Tuesday evening for their regular board meeting and talked about many issues including COVID, the budget, and a good-bye to all the outgoing Board members. Chris-Mont EMA Director Greg Nimmo was on hand to give a COVID-19 update.
The board approved the Comprehensive Economic Development for the County. The motion carried 9-6. This has been an ongoing issue for a while and there was quite a bit of discussion on this one but it was approved and will go into effect for the county in December.
The board adopted the FY2021 final budget and the tax levy ordinance unanimously. The board also extended the emergency declaration proclamation and recognized outgoing County Board members Charles DeClerck, Becky Edwards, Brian Wilbur, Phil Schneider, and Molly Alaria.
Charles DeClerck has been a County Board Member since 1988. Prior to being on the board, he was on the County Board of Appeals. Chairwoman Becky Edwards praised Charles DeClerck for his time on the Board.
Chairwoman Becky Edwards, who held her last board meeting this month, also gave a statement saying that she was proud of her time on the board.
Edwards also had a message for the incoming Board President and the members of the County Board.
The next County Board meeting is set for December 7th for the re-organizational meeting.
