Next meeting: March 7

I give up.

Roads are still bad. Folks in Marshall could probably make it to a meeting fine, but I fear our members out in the county would not have any easy time of it.

Let's meet next at our regular day and time: 6:30 p.m. Thursday, March 7, at Wood & Huston Community Room.

Michelle Dietrich from the State Historic Preservation Office will join us to provide information on how we go about updating our surveys.

The only other items on the agenda are to recommend a new member of the commission and elect a new chairman.

Sorry about the meeting-schedule-runaround this week!

Special meeting re-re-reschedule

The weather is out to get us.

We had looked at Monday night for a special meeting. But not only is it possible some of our members out in the county will still be digging out from Thursday's little snow kerfuffle, but it appears we could get hit with more bad stuff Monday night (and Tuesday).

If it works for most folks, let's move the meeting to Thursday, 6:30 p.m. at the courthouse (I'll double check with Bill and Monte, but that should work).

It appears Punxsutawney Phil was slightly off in his prognostications this year.


Special meeting re-reschedule

OK. The forecast for Thursday looks grim. Snow. Sleet. Freezing rain. Could we move the special meeting to 6:30 p.m. Monday, Feb. 25?

Let me know if that works.


Special meeting reschedule

At the February commission meeting, we planned to hold a special meeting Friday, Feb. 15, to consider the question of electing a new chairman and making a recommendation for a new member.

I apologize for the late notice, but I'm afraid I can't make it Friday.

I would like to suggest we meet at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 21, in the county commission office (assuming it's available -- I'll check.)

I hope that will work for most everybody.


Arrow Rock Landing nomination approved | HPC continues to study historic district options

For immediate release

MARSHALL, MO -- Rich Lawson believes he has conclusive evidence that 8.21 acres he owns on the north edge of Arrow Rock is the place where the distinctive rock the village was named for once served as a landmark for pioneer travelers.

The spot is also where a ferry service was located for much of the 19th century and was the crossing point for the Santa Fe Trail, a trade route that had significant influence on the early development of Saline County.
