MARION — The Osceola County Board of Commissioners voted to approve the USDA Grant for Rescue Task Force Equipment at its meeting on Tuesday.
“It’s standard equipment we’re updating and we have a grant to do almost all of it,” commission chairman Jack Nehmer said.

The commission approved the youth attention center services agreement.
“That had to be updated,” Nehmer said. “They used to be supported by the two counties, Mecosta and Osceola. They went off and now they stand alone. We still support them but we don’t run it anymore. They’re their own entity. So we had to do a different agreement.”

The board approved a motion that the Board of Commissioners concurred with any decision by Chief Judge HilI-Kennedy to have the Court join the Northern Michigan Regional Assignment list and adopt the Michigan Appellate Assigned Counsel System Standard Attorney Fee and Expense Policy.

“He brought that to us on May 7,” Nehmer said. “He pretty much explained it and laid it out and said he was in favor of it and Mecosta County already agreed to it.

The board approved the payment for loss of livestock to Kenneth Major for $105 and Floyd Ankney for $182.

The board also approved the purchase of a 2019 F-150 XL 4×4 Pickup in the amount of $25,841.00 for Animal Control.

“The one they had is 10 years old,” Nehmer said. “It’s in good shape and they’ve had good luck with. It has 138,000 miles. We’ll keep it as a spare and perhaps use it in other departments and we’ll get a new one.”
