Hagan said he had attended the NWKS Planning & Development meeting the night before.  There were eleven present plus the officers.  Their discussion was mainly about the housing projects.  Some schools are building homes (Goodland, Beloit, and Hays).  The tax credits have been diverted from NWKS P & D to Bainter Construction which makes the costs of the houses much higher.  DG Hansen will not give more grants because they waiting to see how the monies they have invested in the project are being used. 

Hagan had received requests from tax payers in Alcona Township about getting out of the Logan Fire District.  The County Clerk was instructed to look into this. 

t, Ruder made a motion to adjourn the meeting.  Hagan seconded the motion, and Balthazor agreed. 

Adopted this 5th day of February, 2019
