BOCC Nov. 18 meeting time adjusted

The Board of County Commissioners will hold its regular business meeting at 9:30 a.m., on Nov. 18, to address a single item. While sitting as the Governing Body of Fire District No. 2, the board will consider authorizing Resolution No. 2021-4 and the issuance and delivery of general obligation bonds, Series 2021-A. The board will recess and then reconvene at 1:30 p.m., to continue its agenda.

The adjustment in schedule is being made so commissioners may pay their respects during a memorial service for former U.S. Rep. Dennis Moore, a Johnson County resident, who passed away on Nov. 2. A public service to celebrate his life will be held at 11 a.m., at Johnson County Community College, Yardley Hall, 12345 College Blvd., Overland Park.

“Dennis Moore touched many lives in the Johnson County community, from his time as a long-time district attorney to his service as a federal lawmaker and beyond,” said Chairman Ed Eilert. “He was a wonderful friend.”  

Taking action on the Fire District No. 2 item of authorizing the issuance and delivery of general obligation of bonds is required at 9:30 a.m., because bids for the purchase of the bonds will be opened at 11 a.m., on Wednesday Nov. 17, and best practices recommend official action by the governing body take place within 24 hours of opening the bids to allow the winning bidder to process the offer. 

At 1:30 p.m., on Nov. 18, the rest of the BOCC meeting will be held, beginning with public comments, which would ordinarily be received in the morning. The process to pre-register for public comment will be the same. Pre-registration will become available the evening of Tuesday, Nov. 16, and close at noon, on Nov. 17. However, on Nov. 18, those wishing to provide public comment may also register in person until 1:20 p.m., that day. 

On Nov. 18, there will be no Agenda Review, due to there being no BOCC meeting the following week, Nov. 25, in observance of the Thanksgiving holiday.
