[FEB. 17, 2007]  Airport/Farm Committee chairman Bill Sahs announced Logan County will be receiving funding for drainage improvements at the local airport. Two projects totaling $484,779 are included that will replace an open drainage ditch on the south end of airport property with 60-inch tile. The north end of the airport will receive additional tiling to improve drainage in this area.

Rick Aylesworth announced the low bidder for mowing this year is Dan Hardin of Lincoln. The full board will likely approve this contract Tuesday at its regular voting session.

In other action, finance chairman Chuck Ruben announced the audit has resumed of 2005 financials as of Feb. 15.

Ruben also announced that an agreement had been worked out with the Tri-County Regional Planning Commission to oversee Logan County's GIS program. A voice vote indicated this would pass on Tuesday.

Law Enforcement/Emergency Management Committee chairman Michael McIntosh announced that the paramedic association will soon be acquiring a new ambulance. The trade-in value was only $3,000 on the old ambulance, so the committee is considering donating it to animal control. A decision will come later on this idea.

The furniture for the 911 emergency dispatch center has been ordered, and final specifications are being prepared for the remodeling of areas in the Lincoln-Logan County Safety Complex that are affected by the relocation of the dispatching functions.
