Presiding Commissioner Bob Huston opened the ceremony with an introduction of county elected officials and representatives from the City of Belton. “While other counties around defund their law enforcement, Cass County will continue to fund and support all of our law enforcement entities. We will continually make Cass County a great place to live, work, and play!” stated Commissioner Huston.
“I would like to thank our County Commissioners; Bob Huston, Monty Kisner and Ryan Johnson, for investing in our plans to bring county services to Northern Cass County. I watched during my law enforcement career, as this site deteriorated and became a drain on public services. I am excited about the next step in this process. The construction of a North Sheriff and County Annex here at the I-49 corridor and gateway to Cass County is where we will stop the drain of resources and bring county services to this community,” said Sheriff Jeff Weber.
Demolition is expected to take approximately 9 weeks. County officials will meet to discuss the community needs and facility design, however no timeline has been established at this stage.
