Pottawatomie County Commission Looks at Justice Center and Department Updates

Monday saw another regular business meeting for the Pottawatomie County Commission and with November closing out last week they were looking at another round of monthly updates from their departments.

Scott Schwinn, county transfer station landfill supervisor and county sanitarian, Leslie Campbell, Pottawatomie County Heath Director, and Gregg Webster, zoning administrator, all gave their reports for the month of November.

Schwinn mentioned that numbers were a little lower than expected, but compared to last year, still doing rather well. 

Campbell said she would be bringing back, after the new year, a new mission statement for the health department.  She also mentioned that there were still pertussis and flu shots available for those who many still need them. 

Webster also brought forth the list of permits for November.  This year there was 28, compared to 11 last year.  This made the total cost about three times as much as November 2012 sat at $6,451,764.00 compared to $1,801,000.00 last November.

The commission also had their full Justice Center update with Dan Rowe, Vice President of Treanor Architects, during their meeting.   Rowe brought up an issue concerning mansary, but the issue has been dealt with and Rowe says that “everything is on schedule.”  They are looking to, hopefully, have the building enclosed for winter by late December or early January.
