HUTCHINSON, Kan. — The Reno County Commission appears to have a mostly routine agenda for Tuesday’s meeting.
The highlight would have to be one study item where the commission will consider backing the food policy council in Reno County.
Previously, the city of South Hutchinson passed a resolution establishing the Reno County Food Policy Council, but has since dissolved its involvement. Now, the Reno County Commission will consider backing it.
The council addresses food disparities and food access issues in the county. Officials say the council is still active, but is not formally recognized by a governing body at this time.
They say food security is a necessity of life, recognized as a condition in which all county residents must be able to obtain a safe, culturally acceptable, nutritionally-adequate diet through a sustainable food system.
The county commission will also discuss an environmental health proposal to create an environmental engineer evaluation policy.
The Reno County Commission meeting is at 9 a.m. Tuesday in the Reno County Courthouse.
