Mr. Witte presented information from Mid-Kansas Tent & Awning concerning options for the awning for the west door of the Courthouse.  The possibility of an awning with a contrasting trim was discussed at last week’s meeting.  Mr. Witte reported that the vendor has suggested the trim be painted on with a commercial latex paint that would probably outlast the awning itself.  Extra cost for the painted trim is $275; this makes the total cost for the awning $4,065 including installation.  Commissioner Schroeder made a motion to approve the bid from Mid-Kansas Tent & Awning for an awning with second-color trim for the west courthouse entrance for a total cost of $4,065, including installation.  Commissioner Patrick seconded.  All voted aye.

 

Richard Nelson, Public Works Road & Bridge Supervisor, joined the meeting at 10:10 a.m.  Mr. Witte requested 10 minutes in executive session, from 10:12 to 10:22 a.m., to discuss non-elected personnel in the Public Works Department and to include himself and Mr. Nelson.  Commissioner Schroeder made a motion to go into executive session as requested.  Commissioner Patrick seconded.  All voted aye.  The Commissioners returned to open session at 10:22 a.m.  No action was taken during executive session.

 

Commissioner Schroeder made a motion to designate Commissioner Patrick as the McPherson County Voting Delegate at the Kansas Association of Counties (KAC) 28th Annual Conference in November.  Commissioners Schroeder and Terry voted aye.  Commissioner Patrick abstained.

 

Mr. Witte presented a revised copy of the software license/support agreement with KOMTEK Systems Corporation.  KOMTEK made changes in the contract as requested by County Counselor, John Klenda at last week’s meeting.  The contract was approved at last week’s meeting contingent upon the changes being made so the Chairman signed the contract as presented.

 

At 11:20 a.m. the Commissioners recessed and reconvened at 9:30 a.m. on Friday, October 10th.  Commissioner Patrick made a motion to go into executive session to discuss non-elected personnel in the Public Works Department.  Commissioner Schroeder seconded.
