The Independence County Quorum will hold a special teleconference meeting on Tuesday, April 14.
The Independence County Clerk, in her message to Quorum Court members, said the agenda contains citizens’ public comments after the roll call and two resolutions.
Resolution number four of 2020 authorizes Judge Robert Griffin to submit an application to the Arkansas Economic Development Commission for a community development project.
Resolution number five of 2020 authorizes the County Judge to sign certain agreements prior to Quorum Court approval during the COVID-19 pandemic.
A resolution is an official expression of the opinion or will of a legislative body, in this case, the Independence County Quorum Court. Secondly, resolutions are passed for internal, administrative purposes.
Resolution number four says the Independence County government may apply to the State of Arkansas for a COVID-19 Response Program grant to provide assistance to the White River Health System.
The resolution says the county has conducted the required public hearing and has an active Citizens Participation Plan/Community Development Plan, and as part of the plan has received comments on community development and housing needs.
The resolution also says the county has, as a result of the public hearing, identified and prioritized community development and housing needs.
The resolution gives the County Judge the authority to apply for State of Arkansas grant funds, and to expend the funds.
A copy of resolution number five of 2020 has not yet been provided to the media.
