Supervisors to review next step

On the agenda for the Washington County Supervisors meeting Tuesday morning is a resolution to begin the process of levying taxes to purchase the new equipment for the Washington County Communications Center.

“This is just one more step in the overall process,” Washington County auditor Dan Widmer said.

There will probably be a discussion about the tax levy process at the meeting tomorrow, but a tax levy won’t be set until a later date, he added. The county is waiting for the Requests For Proposals (RFPs) to be turned in. They are due March 22.

Widmer said he expects there to be more discussion about the tax levy process at the meeting tomorrow, but a tax levy won’t be set.

“We’re just working through this process and it’s not definite how it’s going to work,” he added. “There are a lot of details that still need to be worked out.”

Also on the agenda for Tuesday’s meeting is the county-owned property located at 302 West Main Street in Washington.

At the meeting on Feb. 6, the supervisors discussed whether or not to get bids to have a fence installed on the west side of the property and whether or not to have it paved or gravel laid for use as a parking lot. A motion was made to get bids for the fencing and for gravel.

Supervisor Jack Seward Jr. said he preferred leaving that lot as a green space and voted no on the motion.

He added there was a potential for the county to purchase the land to the north of this property in the future and the county had other projects they needed the money for.
