The Cherokee County Commission held their regular meeting on Monday. Items approved included an excess land redemption for Coy Deaton in the amount on $590.39. The Commission also approved the East Central Alabama Highway Safety Office Traffic Enforcement agreement for October 1 – September 30, 2020.
Three individuals were reappointed to the Cherokee County Communications District Board to serve four-year terms, Shawn Rogers, Becky Smith and Gary Hopper.
The Commission also reappointed Doug Davis to serve a six-year term on the Cherokee County Public Building Authority. A motion to appoint a member to the Alabama Mountain Lakes Association Board for a two-year term was tabled.
A Resolution was adopted providing Tier I benefits to Tier II plan members; the Commission also adopted the employer plan to increase Tier I member contribution rates and authorized Chairman Tim Burgess to sign the necessary paperwork.
A change in polling place for Spring Creek voters in Precinct #17 was approved. The current polling place is the Spring Creek Fire Department on County 22 and is being moved to the Fellowship Hall at Noah Baptist Church because the facility at the fire station is too small to accommodate social distancing during the COVID019 pandemic.
The next regular meeting of the Cherokee County Commission meeting will be Monday, September 14th at 10:00 a.m. in the Commission Chambers at the Cherokee County Administrative Building.
