January 4, 1992


Like people who make New Year's resolutions, the Douglas County Commission on Monday will open its 1992 business by discussing the county's legislative goals for the year.

The county will discuss the goals, which it will present to the county's legislative delegation on Wednesday. The county has developed a list of eight legislative goals to consider. Having the state retain its funding for several county projects and programs is the thrust of several goals.

The county wants to maintain the state's 90 percent funding for building a juvenile detention center this year. State funding also is needed to keep community corrections' juvenile intensive supervised probation program intact and keep reappraisal efforts on track. The county also does not want the state to dilute its comprehensive highway plan.

The meeting will begin at 9 a.m. in the county courthouse, 11th and Massachusetts streets.

HERE IS Monday's agenda:

Consider Dec. 30, 1991, minutes.

Consent agenda:

Consider commission orders.

Consider a contract for 1992 office supplies.

Consider a contract for physical fitness site use for public safety employees.

Regular agenda:

Discuss 1992 Legislative priorities.

Convene in executive session to discuss land acquisition for the regional juvenile detention center.

Consider accounts payable and appointments; receive comment from the commission, county administrator and the public.


Leave for tour of proposed Palmyra Township minimum maintenance roads. The commission decided Dec. 18 to get a firsthand look at the 10 township roads in the southeastern part of the county to see if they should be declared as minimum maintenance, which means the township would grade the roads and repair potholes less frequently than normal.
