CASS COUNTY – Road projects in Cass County are being finished as well as starting around Cass County, Richard Hansen, Assistant to the Engineer, told the Cass County Board of Supervisors Tuesday.

Hansen said asphalt has been laid on Olive Street, and on Wednesday, lines were expected to be painted on the road. He said railroad approaches and bridge approaches, including at the Nishnabotna Bridge, need to be completed and there will also be some shoulder done on the street as well.

On Tuesday, workers were going to start laying asphalt on the Lewis Road, Hansen said, and a little rock would be added to the shoulder on places were it is needed.

In other news, the board also held a public hearing on disposing of property in Cumberland. There were no comments about the property, so the supervisors approved disposing it. Then had a quick auction for the property, which is located next to 207 Jackson Street. The individual who owns that property, Darrin Hardisty, agreed to a $100 bid during the auction.

Cass County Conservation Director Mica Lee reported about projects for the conservation department including the fact that some of the camping sites are being moved to allow more space to others.

He explain sites one through eight were “really tight and close to each other,” and many were not getting much use. So three are being moved to the northwest corner of the campground area, and they are waiting for inspection of the electricity there before they can be used.
