The next meeting of the Osceola County Board of Commissioners will be on Wednesday, July 5, chairman Larry Emig said.

The regularly scheduled date of the first Tuesday falls on July 4 this year.

The most recent meeting of the commissioners was on June 20.

The commissioners approved a motion that all employees had to be wearing individual IDs as of July 31.

“The reason for having the badges is to identify our employees,” Emig said. “People come in and out of the building. We want to know who’s working there and who’s not working there. Even commissioners are getting ours [them.].”

Emig noted because the occupancy permit had been received for the new COA building in Marion, the facility started being used on June 19 and the county terminated its agreement with the Marion Eagles for use of the former site.

The county enters July with business as usual, Emig indicated.

“Obviously the last day or so, we’ve had issues with storm and flooding,” he said. “We didn’t get the other rain like Mount Pleasant and other areas. The issue for us is how much rain went to the area north of us. We may experience some of that flow when it comes down. I think we’re all right.”
