The Christian County board met on Tuesday evening to discuss minutes, old business, new business, and other orders of business at their monthly meeting.  The board presented in writing a resolution to send out opposing eminent domain for CO2 pipelines. Matt Wells talked a little about what the resolution said.

 

 

The board discussed whether or not to submit the resolution.  County Board member Mike Specha spoke about feeling that the board wasn’t doing enough discussing on the issue itself.

 

 

The board voted to send it back to the personnel, policy, and procedure committee. The board voted on bringing zoning business back to the courthouse. The board announced they would continue appointing a zoning officer. 

 

In new business, Craig Paulek spoke about some new projects for the Christian County Ag Fair.  Dick Adams spoke about the Christian County Economic Development Corporation, Shelby Electric’s Josh Shallenberger spoke out for broadband from Shelby Electric.  The board approved the Sheriff’s Office using the old EMA car. The board also heard from the public, many of who spoke out in support of the Christian County Health Department for their hard work during the pandemic and a disconnect that has been seen between the Health Board and the Christian County Board. 

 

The next County Board meeting is set for September 20th, 2022.
