Funding request tabled

by Kim Fickett

An item to request federal funds for the Humphrey's Access Bridge at the county commission meeting Thursday had to be tabled regarding a stipulation, according to Dale Thomas, director of public works.

The Missouri Department of Transportation, which approves federal funding for projects like the Humphrey's Access Bridge and the Sharp Station Bridge, approved $600,000 in funds for the Sharp Station Bridge Project.

According to Thomas, that approval came before the new figures totaling $830,000 were submitted to MoDOT regarding that project.

In order for the county to request federal funds for a new project (the Humphrey's Access Bridge), they must await a new approval from MoDOT regarding the $830,000 request of funds for the Sharp Station Bridge project.

Thomas stated that the item would need to be tabled until a later date, waiting upon the approval from MoDOT.

In other business, Cheryl Thorpe, director of tourism, announced a contract for services between the county and Kansas City Adventures for step-on tour guide program development services. The contracted services will provide two main objectives: provide step-on tours of Platte County, as well as the production of brochures and etc. for trade shows regarding Platte County. The contract is for Feb. 15-Dec. 31 of 2002. The services are a budgeted expenditure and will not exceed $6,500.
