BOCC update

BOCC highlights from July 2019

Here are some highlights of the Board of County Commissioners actions and activities in July 2019. More information including official minutes, votes and videos on all items is available at boccmeetings.jocogov.org.

On Monday July 29, the Board of County Commissioners and county staff welcomed the public to an evening hearing on the FY 2020 budget. The BOCC chambers were standing room only and eleven members of the public shared their feedback.  We invite you to view video of the public hearing or read about the proposed 2020 budget. The BOCC is scheduled to vote on the proposed budget at its regular business session on Thursday, Aug. 8 at 9:30 a.m.

Earlier in the month, on July 18, the Board and community attended a study session on how the county is supporting vulnerable populations. Leadership from the Department of Health and Environment, Developmental Supports, Mental Health and Human Services share information about the clients they serve, programs and services, innovations and key outcomes.

The Board took the following action in July:

  • accepted a grant from the Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) not to exceed $155,000, focused on advancing understanding of the current opioid overdose epidemic across the United States. The equipment and software purchased with these grant funds will be used in Johnson County’s Medical Examiner’s Office which is scheduled to begin operation in the second quarter of 2020.
  • authorized service agreement renewals for Mental Health for respite care services with KidsTLC, Inc. and DCCCA, Inc., and psychosocial rehabilitation and crisis intervention services with FosterAdopt Connect
  • (sitting as the governing board of Fire District Number Two) approved the District’s FY 2020 budget and authorized a property tax levy to support that budget.

Information on additional policy decisions made in July is available at boccmeetings.jocogov.org.
