The Chautauqua County Commission met once again this Monday, taking care of several items on the agenda and reorganizing for the new year. Parker Massey was unanimously selected as the chairman of the board, nominated by commissioner Jack Carpenter and seconded by Rodney Shaw. The board also selected the Prairie Star as the official newspaper of the county. Mark McCall provided another update on roads and bridges throughout the county.
After an executive session involving the continued annual review of employees, the board received a report from Sue Kill and passed a resolution to change the names on all signature cards from Shaw to Massey to reflect the changing of the chairman. Also passed was a resolution to remain a member of the Cedar Vale Chamber of Commerce.
