TECUMSEH – Doing business with the Johnson County courthouse will soon be convenient for citizens after hours.
County Treasurer Nadine Beethe suggested establishing a drop box to receive registrations, payments or any courthouse paperwork.
Beethe: “I’d like to thank the Johnson County Board for approving the purchase of the drop box. It’s more of a convenience for the county. It’s just something that has been on the back of my mind anyway, that would have something for the community to drop off.”
Johnson county commissioners agreed Tuesday to install the drop box at the end of the sidewalk on the north side of the courthouse.
Beethe: “We’re not exactly sure where it’s going to go, but we’ll try to put it where it’s convenient. Where you can at least get pretty close to it with your car and drop things off.”
In other action, Emergency Management Director Amanda Burki told commissioners that recent FEMA reimbursement funds would go directly into the road fund.
Highway Superintendent Matt Schardt said work has recently been completed at the fair grounds and said work should begin soon on the Lovitt bridge near Crab Orchard. He said a bridge near Armknechts at Cook may be closed after an inspection.
