Board of Equalization acts on protests, commissioners discuss road salaries
Chase County Commissioners Dave Hogsett and Chuck Vette accepted Don Weiss, Jr.’s resignation from his commissioner’s position at the July 10 commissioners’ meeting.
The move was followed by Dennis Kunnemann taking the oath of office allowing him to assume Weiss’ position.
Weiss had chosen not to run for reelection in May’s primary. Out of the three Republican candidates, Kunnemann was elected commissioner.
Kunnemann had been attending commissioners’ meetings to help prepare for taking office in January.
At the July 10 meeting, Kunnemann said he had expected more time to learn.
Board of Equalization
After adjourning their regular meeting, the commissioners acted on several protests they heard July 2.
Because he hadn’t taken part in the protest hearings, Kunnemann abstained from voting on the protests.
Hogsett and Vette went with Chase County Assessor Dotty Bartels’ recommendations on all protests acted on during the meeting..
Bartels suggested no change to two of the protests.
One adjustment was accepted after house owners accepted an interior inspection.
