BOCC clarifies position, disaster declaration continues

Johnson County Board of County Commissioners held their regularly scheduled meeting on Thursday, May 28.

Among other items discussed, commissioners took up the following topics:

  • Authorized the submission of a ballot question for the November general election about the proposition to allow the sale of alcohol by the drink without a requirement to sell food. 
  • Authorized staff to develop a plan to increase support of Johnson County’s aging population.
  • Amended the BOCC’s official 2020 meeting calendar.

The BOCC received updates regarding COVID-19 and took action to renew our local disaster emergency declaration, required for the county to request emergency assistance from the state and federal government. The BOCC also voted to support a message from Johnson County Local Health Director Dr. Joseph LeMaster and Johnson County Department of Health and Environment Director Dr. Sanmi Areola strongly recommending that Johnson County residents and businesses continue to adhere to the Ad Astra plan, plus approved the creation of a Johnson County guidance plan (effective today and lasting through June 11), which is reflective of the guidance in Phase 3 of the state’s plan.
