Hancock County Board to Consider Numerous Road Projects and Leases

The Hancock County Board of Supervisors will meet on Monday morning beginning at 9 am. The major portion of the meeting will deal with roads, leases, and approval of final plans.

Hancock County Engineer Jeremy Purvis will address the board with his delivery of the County Engineer’s Report on Secondary Roads. In it, he will recommend the signing of lease agreements for secondary roads ground. This will include grounds in Klemme, Crystal Township, and Grant Township.

Purvis will also have the board consider an Iowa DOT Agreement for Surface Transportation Block Grant Program Federal Aid Swap Project.

The board will also review three proposed Farm to Market routes which will be funded through Farm to Market, Federal, and State Aid. Three routes are planned using the available funding.

Supervisors will also address issues regarding the courthouse which is in need of repair.

The board will discuss options for repairing the damage done by weathering and time.
