Cass County Commissioners announce delay of ‘Charters of Freedom’ project

Foundation Forward, the foundation that created and awards the Charters of Freedom and the Cass County Board of Commissioners wish to announce: We have run into a good problem.

That is, we cannot complete the Charters of Freedom project using local contractors this year. They are all booked with county, city, business, and citizen projects. This is a local project and we would have to go out of the area for the contracted concrete and masonry work, which would increase the cost significantly.

For this reason it was Foundation Forward’s and my decision, to push the project into next year. The good news is that our local contractors are all at their maximum in contracts.

I am sorry for any inconvenience the delay may cause.

Ralph R. Anderson DVM
Commissioner
