Pott County Examines Transportation Numbers

Pottawatomie County commissionersBesides the normal Justice Center update Monday morning, which included the approval of a few change orders, the Pottawatomie County Commission looked at a few other items as well.

Tim Eisenbarth, Noxious Weed Director, brought forth a permit application which would allow for the expansion of the household hazardous waste facility.

The commission also approved the department to hire on summer help as part of a Kansas Department of Transportation contract and to help with the recycling portion of the department.

Though snow has been causing some delays, the Transportation department has been doing rather well.

Dustin Trego, Management Assistant of Operations, explained during his monthly update February had a little lower than normal numbers, but that was expected due to the lack of days and the snow.

Overall there were 225 riders and a total of 783 trips made during the month of February.

The commission’s next meeting will be Monday, April 1.
