November County Board Meeting Tonight

The White County Board will meet at 7 this (Tuesday) evening at the White County Courthouse for its November meeting, which looks to be a busy one.

The tax levy for Fiscal Year 2023-2024 for the county, Coleman Rehab and Egyptian Health Department will be covered along with the possible approval of the annual budget and appropriations for the three entities just mentioned.

The late James “Jim” Totten will be recognized for his service as White County EMA director from 2009 to 2019.

John Stockton, who is running for County Board District Three, will address the board concerning road conditions in Burnt Prairie Township due to the Boomtown Solar Farm Project. It should be noted, Stockton has been a vocal opponent of the solar project and while he has legitimate concerns, most of those concerns, including road conditions have been addressed by Invergy, parent company of the solar project. Invergy has pointed out roads will be “repaired better than original” once the project is complete.

Boomtown Solar is also the subject of another agenda item; this one replacing a bond with a letter of credit.

White County Sheriff Jordan Weiss will ask for another deputy for his force. That would bring the total to six deputy sheriffs.

Consideration and likely approval of a resolution to defray the expenses of the General Fund, the County Board may require the treasurer’s office to impose a non-refundable “sale in error fee” of up to $60 for each parcel sold during the annual tax sale auction.

Two new wells at the closed landfill will be discussed.

A number of appointments to drainage districts will be presented to the board for approval. They include John Campbell for Granny Tweedle Levee District; Albert “Rusty” Walsh for Half Moon Drainage District; Gary Morris for Mill Shoals District 3; David Brown for Hawthorne Drainage District; and Cully Jones for Mud Creek District. All of the terms expire September 1, 2026.

Other matters include the resolution appropriating funds for the payment of the county engineer’s salary; discussion of purging excess equipment.

The final county board meeting of the year will be held at 7 p.m. Dec. 19.
