New County Commission Holds First Formal Meeting
KSAL Staff - Tue 11:32 AM 01/15/2013
The new Saline County Commission is set for 2013.
At their weekly formal meeting on Tuesday, the commission reorganized. Commissioners selected Randy Duncan as commission chair, Jim Gile as vice-chair, and John Price as secretary.
Gile and Price were both participating in their first formal meeting, after having been elected this past November.
The new commission then heard updates from Chris Rost of the Tri Rivers Fair Board, Community Corrections Director Annie Grevas, and Planning & Zoning Director David Neal.
Rost had questions regarding the 2013 fair. He said that contracts need to be signed, and he needed to know if commissioners envisioned any changes. The commission indicated that at some point there would be changes as the county makes plans to vacate the current livestock and expo center, but at least for 2013 the plan is to maintain the status quo. The commission indicated that their top priority for the near-future is finding a permanent facility with the city to use for the Salina Saline County Health Department.
