The recommendation of a 50-foot variance along the Western property line for construction of a new wastewater lagoon system to bring this property into compliance with the Callaway County Ordinance 701.
Marriages in the Courthouse
Mrs. Kleindienst discussed marriages in the Courthouse with the Commissioner’s. There are no longer any judges willing to perform marriages in the Courthouse. The judge that was performing marriages did 40 marriages in 2016, which brought in $440.00, there is the potential loss of that revenue for the County. Also, it would be nice to be able to provide this service to anyone who wants to use it. The Callaway County Assessor is licensed to perform marriages and is willing to do so in the Courthouse with approval from the County Commission, but he charges a fee. Presiding Commissioner Jungermann would like to see if a Boone County Judge that comes over for Court would be willing to perform marriages.
