The Dallas County Board of Supervisors will be holding three more informational meetings on the proposed county administration and jail/jail administration move to east Adel.
The next meeting will be held July 9 at the Woodward-Granger High School cafeteria, 306 W. Third St. in Woodward at 7 p.m.
The following public meetings will be held at the Perry High School library, 1200 18th St. in Perry on July 16 and at the Waukee Community District Central Administration Office, 580 SE University in Waukee. Both will be held at 7 p.m.
Last week, the board met with residents in Adel.
Chairman Mark Hanson commented on some resistance to the proposed site.
“This is not an overnight project,” he said. “Some at the meeting said that moving the jail was a last minute decision, but we’ve been dealing with this for years. Time is money, and if this does fail, I don’t know what the next best option is.”
County residents will decide on Aug. 6 whether or not a $16,850,000 bond referendum passes.
Also at the board’s weekly meeting, they recognized 12 county employees for their service including: Marty Kuhel, five years of service at Central Service; Michael Beele, 10 years with Dallas County Conservation; Eric Weber, 10 years with Operations Administration; Steve Bandy, 15 years with the Sheriff’s Office, and Jackie Orton, 35 years with the Treasurer’s Office.
