RPC Issues

10:00am

The Callaway County Commission met with Ed Siegmund, Mid-Missouri RPC Director, and Michelle Kidwell, County Emergency Management Director, to discuss RPC (Regional Planning Commission) issues. Deborah Goldman was also present for this meeting to represent the County Clerk’s office. Eastern District Commissioner Randy Kleindienst joined the meeting at 10:30am.

First, the group discussed a Hazard Mitigation Plan between Callaway County, Mid-Missouri RPC, and SEMA (State Emergency Management Agency). Mr. Siegmund explained that FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) mandates that counties prepare Hazard Mitigation Plans for their jurisdictions in order to develop guidelines for naturally occurring hazards. In Missouri, SEMA manages the Hazard Mitigation Plan program. Mid-Missouri RPC helps counties, such as Callaway, put their plans together.

Mr. Siegmund presented the Commission with a Memorandum of Agreement between Callaway County, Mid-Missouri RPC, and SEMA regarding the development of Callaway County’s Hazard Mitigation Plan. The plan is due in October.

Western District Commissioner Roger Fischer made a motion to enter into a Memorandum of Agreement with Mid-Missouri Regional Planning Commission and SEMA to develop a Hazard Mitigation Plan and to authorize Presiding Commissioner Gary Jungermann to sign the Agreement on behalf of the County.

Presiding Commissioner Gary Jungermann seconded the motion.

All in favor… ayes have it. Court Order #68 — signed.

Next, the group discussed the Cedar Creek watershed. Mr. Siegmund informed the Commission that he has met with the Missouri Department of Natural Resources to discuss the close-out of the Cedar Creek watershed feasibility study. He stated that the Callaway County now needs to meet with Boone County Sewer District to discuss the potential opportunity of tying this area into the Boone County sewer district. Mr. Siegmund also said that DNR can help Callaway County determine what its options are for the sewer issues in this area. He insisted that

Callaway County should make these preparations in the next couple of months in order to apply for 604B grant funding for the project.

Commissioner Jungermann added that he has spoken with a former DNR head who now is involved with the Boone County Sewer District. He has also been in touch with Cape County, who has dealt with a similar issue in the past; Cape County is sending Commissioner Jungermann some information that may be helpful. He informed Mr. Siegmund that the County is now working on scheduling a meeting with the Boone County Sewer District.

Finally, the group discussed the progress of a FLAP grant application. Callaway County, in conjunction with Boone County, has applied for FLAP grant funding to help cover the cost of replacing the Burnett School Road Bridge. Mr. Siegmund stated that he will follow-up with the application to verify its status, but the last he knew Callaway County’s and MoDOT’s applications were the only two under consideration for the grant at this point.

Court Order #68 — MOA for Hazard Mitigation Plan

Now on this day, the Callaway County Commission does hereby into a Memorandum of Agreement with the Mid-Missouri Regional Planning Commission and the State Emergency Management Agency (SEMA) regarding the development of a Hazard Mitigation Plan for Callaway County. The Commission does also hereby authorize Presiding Commissioner Gary Jungermann to sign the Agreement on behalf of the County.
