Christian County Board Meets For September Meeting

The Christian County Board met on Tuesday evening for their monthly board meeting. Appointments were made including the Solid Waste and Zoning positions. Board Chairman Matt Wells says that he received five applications. Shawn Hammers was given the job for Solid Waste.

 

 

Hammers is set to start on October 1st. Zoning Board will get Blake Tarr as the new Zoning Administrator.  Both motions passed. The board discussed green energy project updates. The board approved a motion to send a letter in opposition to the grain belt transmission line project. 

 

 

A motion was approved to put a 6-month moratorium on the project. The motion was approved. The board than discussed whether or not they should support the Citizens Against Heartland Greenway Pipeline.  Attorney Wes Poggenpohl cautioned against joining as a group.

 

 

The motion to publicly support the group failed 7-3. The City of Taylorville requested a letter of support from the county concerning phase II of the downtown revitalization program. Many of the board members wanted to hold off support until they heard from the businesses if this was something they wanted to do. The board tabled the motion until next month. 

 

The next county board meeting is set for October 18th.
