County Approves Their 1% Allocations

Johnson County's Commissioners approved their allocations for funding from the optional one-percent sales tax to local organizations, after making some minor adjustments to the recommendations from the One-Percent Committee.

The commissioners allocated $663,000 which was under the amount set by the committee that was just shy of $669,000.

Commission Chair Bill Novotny explained the main change commissioners made from the committee's recommendations.

Some of the organizations that requested funding this year weren't funded or withdrew their applications due to the county discovering unused funds that had been allocated to them in past years that they could then use this year.

Funds allocated by the county were:

$20,000 for Critical Air Service Team (CAST).
$50,000 for County Road & Bridge.
$12,000 for the Mikesell-Potts Recreation Area.

$36,000 for the County Fair Board.
$17,000 for the Kaycee Health Forum.
$5,200 for the Hoofprints of the Past Museum.
$49,000 for the Town of Kaycee.
$4,000 for Child Development, Region 2.
