The Traveling Kansas – Rooks County television show had shown on KOOD the previous night.  The board thought it turned out very well.

Hagan reported he would be on vacation between July 31st and August 15th

After finding out some information concerning the golf course, Ruder requested some discussion.  The County Attorney has found that the minerals are attached to the land, and Ruder would like to move forward with a decision.  Ruder made a motion to purchase the Rooks County Golf Course and Club with the understanding of clear title and the contract stipulations from County Attorney Danielle Muir.  Poore seconded the motion, and Hagan voted no because he and the people in his area are against this project.  Poore added that he hopes private parties may be willing to purchase the property from the County in the future.  Other discussions were about a plan to appoint an advisory board to get the project going and make some decisions and get membership letters out quickly. Part-time help may be employed as well.

With no further business to transact, Poore made a motion to adjourn.  Ruder seconded the motion, and Hagan agreed.

Adopted this 2nd day of July, 2018
