Doniphan Co meals on wheels program resumes

(KNZA)--The Doniphan County meals on wheels program is back in operation after the kitchen where the meals are prepared was shut down for two weeks due to the coronavirus pandemic.

That's what County Aging Administrator Peggy Wood told Doniphan County Commissioners Monday.

Commissioners directed Wood to formulate a plan for continuing operations of the meals on wheels program in the event the kitchen is closed again or has a staffing shortage.

In a related matter, Commissioners were informed kitchen assistant Sherry Walton, who has worked for the county since 2001, will retire this Saturday. A reception in her honor is planned Friday afternoon from 12:30 to 1:30 at the Highland Senior Citizens Center.

In other business, the Commission voted to hire Jerry Wayne Carter as 2nd District road foreman, subject to a 90-day probationary period and pre-employment screening. His salary was set at $40,000 for the first 90 days. Upon successful completion of the probationary period, his pay will be comparable to the salary of the other two road foremen.

County Clerk/Election Officer Peggy Franken informed Commissioners that, as of Monday, over 900 voters have applied for advance mail ballots or voted in advance of the November 3rd general election. The County Clerk's Office, in addition to normal business hours, will be open for in-person advance voting this Saturday morning from 8:00 to 12 noon.
