Barton County citizens are being asked to help with current hazard mitigation planning efforts by taking a survey that asks for participants’ opinions about hazards, funding and the current Hazard Mitigation Plan. Local participation is important in the development of emergency plans. Completion of the survey should only take five minutes. Below you will find the link for the SurveyMonkey public input survey (in both English and Spanish).
Hazard mitigation is a sustained action taken to reduce or eliminate long-term risk to people and their property from hazards.
Thank you for taking time to participate and encourage others to complete the survey!
Individuals may contact Amy Miller, Emergency Management Director, at 620-793-1919 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information concerning the Regional Hazard Mitigation Plan as well as the survey.
The construction of two new concrete drainage structures on SW 70 Road approximately two miles west of Pawnee Rock started on Sept. 3rd. SW 70 Road will be closed between SW 130 Avenue and SW 140 Avenue during construction, with the work anticipated to be completed in late November. SW 70 Road is located on the Barton/Pawnee County line and the cost of the project is being split between the two counties. L&M Contractors, Inc., from Great Bend was awarded the construction project at a bid price of $128,641.00. Local traffic will need to find alternate routes during construction due to the removal of the roadway at both construction sites.
