Please make these three calls!
The Crawford County Commissioners are scheduled to vote to approve a $1.2 million dollar bid to renovate a building located at 409 S. Franklin St. Cuba, MO, to house a Coroner’s facility at their next meeting, Tuesday, February 14, at 9:00 AM.
While we understand the need for and support a coroner’s office, we cannot support the building or the location as suitable for a coroner’s office.
The building is located next door to a strip mall that houses the Cuba license office. This is a high-traffic, congested area with limited parking available and unsuitable to house a Coroner’s office.
The bid of 1.2 million dollars for remodeling and expanding this building is excessive and an unacceptable amount of taxpayer money to be spent for such a facility.
The Commissioners should reject this bid and continue to search for a more appropriate location and a lower-cost building to house the coroner’s office.
CALL TO ACTION:
Attend the County Commissioner’s Meeting on February 14, 2023. The Commission meets every Tuesday at 9:00 AM at the County Courthouse.
If you are unable to attend, please call or email your commissioner and request that the commission rejects this current bid and continue to search for a better facility before the February 14th meeting.
