Tax Dollar Request, Courthouse Hours Discussed

WAYNE – Several items of discussion took place Tuesday morning during the Wayne County Commissioners Meeting.

From the Courthouse Meeting Room, a potential increase in the Wayne Rural Fire District tax dollars request for ambulance services was talked about. Commissioner Randy Larson will attend City Council Tuesday evening listen in on the topic.

The Commissioners agreed they don’t need to be in the middle of the discussion, but if the Rural Fire District would bring forward a tax increase they would ok or deny the request.

At the end of the meeting, several courthouse employees brought up the subject of hours of operation. Currently, the Wayne County Courthouse is open from 8:30 a.m. until 5 p.m. and stated during the meeting, only Wayne and Madison Courthouses are open until 5 p.m.

Options were brought up of 8 a.m. – 4:30 p.m., a split shift between office employees from 8 a.m. –  5 p.m. or just have each office decide. No action was taken due to the fact it was not an agenda item.

Action was taken on during one of the public hearings to vacate the road of 573rd Avenue for an approximate distance of 1,110 feet. The section would be from 853rd Rd and South Logan Creek.

The other public hearing was moved until the next regularly scheduled meeting. The Logan Valley Golf Course is having their management transferred and need to receive public input on a Class C Retail Liquor License application.

The next Wayne County Board of Commissioners meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, May 2 at 9 a.m.
