The Platte County Commission has announced three reappointments to the planning and zoning commission and the board of zoning adjustment.

Leo Hayden was appointed as the representative for the Kickapoo Township to the planning and zoning commission. Dennis Stanton was also named the representative of the Marshall Township. Both men will serve a four-year term, to be effective Dec. 18, 2001 and expire Dec. 17, 2005.

Tina Zubeck was appointed as the representative to the Board of Zoning Adjustment for a four-year term, to take effect Dec. 19, 2001 and expire Dec. 18, 2005.

The commission approved a $100,000 bond to ensure the satisfactory completion of a bridge on Brush Creek on Old Waldron Road. The bridge must be completed within one year.

Commissioners heard recommendations to release a $8,375 bond for a maintenance guarantee for storm sewer improvements in Timber Park 3rd Plat. The other recommendation was for the release of a $68,262.50 bond for street improvements to Dulin Acres. The commission also approved a maintenance bond for Dulin Acres for 25 percent of the original bond amount. The $17,065 amount will extend over three years to ensure the maintenance of those streets.

A previous request for bids for commercial cleaning of the administration building was rejected at the meeting, after deciding to have the cleaning done in-house. The commission decided to accept bids for six months, and in July of 2002 begin the cleaning in-house.

The commission also approved an agreement between Platte County and Ed Pate and Associates for professional environmental assessment services. The company will be assessing land the county is considering for parks services including the Clay/Platte Sports Complex Property and the Green Hills Wildlife Preserve.
