Cass County Road Commission experiences COVID-19 related funding cuts
CASSOPOLIS — The Cass County Road Commission has adjusted some services this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the reduction in funding. Roadside mowing, pothole patching and tree trimming/tree removal services have been reduced. The temporary and seasonal part time employees hired to help with these services have been eliminated this year.
In order to complete paving projects, all current full-time employees are needed. Once projects are complete, or as time becomes available, these other services will be done.
“Many in the farming community and county residents already take care of roadside mowing within the right-of-way, and this does not go unnoticed,” said Terri Wyman, executive assistant and board clerk. “We thank you for that. If you own property or have an area that needs to be mowed and can help; please do so.”
If residents have any questions or concerns, they may reach out to the Cass County Road Commission at (269) 445-8611 or email@example.com.
