Article in January 14th South Cass Tribune

There are several misstatements in the article, “Garden City makes arrangements with Belton to house prisoners”, which appears on page 2 of the January 14, 2021 edition of The South Cass Tribune.

First, the cost to fix the cameras in the police cars is $1,100 for both cars, not each.

Second, Laurie Oakes is the City Clerk and not an Alderman.

Third, the bill passed for the waiving of fees for use of the Community Building for funerals was a Resolution, not an Ordinance.  Ordinances are laws where resolutions are used for policy.

Most importantly, the Board DID NOT vote to allow the Mayor to have a gas card.   The Board DID vote to allow the Mayor to enter into an agreement for fuel card services with Wex Bank and The National Joint Powers Alliance under Missouri Contract #C16089001.  Only City employees will be authorized to purchase fuel for City owned vehicles and equipment.

Are you interested in receiving the COVID-19 Vaccine?

The Cass County Health Department has developed a vaccine survey tool to inform residents when and where they might qualify to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. The survey asks for contact information, occupation, and pre-existing medical conditions. Responses from the survey will help us determine which phase of the state’s vaccination plan residents fall under. All individuals who live, work, or go to school in Cass County and are interested in receiving the vaccine are encouraged to fill out the survey here.

Once the vaccine is made available for your tier, the Cass County Health Department will use your information from the survey below to contact you with further instructions on how to schedule an appointment to receive your vaccination. 

Per the guidance provided by the CDC, COVID-19 vaccinations will not be provided to those under the age of 16.

Survey can be found on the Cass County Health Department Website
