After a few weeks of general bashing from Platte County staff, the Platte County Commission released the following statement last Thursday:
"In response to the Platte County Prosecutor’s proposed plan to rescind the Platte County Park’s tax in favor of a law enforcement tax, the Platte County Commission has stopped all work on the planned expansions at both Platte County YMCA Centers.
"During Tuesday’s Commission Meeting, Platte County Prosecutor, Eric Zahnd, proposed rescinding the current Parks and Recreation Tax, advocated against expansion of the community centers and said the tax should be replaced with a law enforcement tax.
"After the budget hearing Tuesday, the Platte County Commission has decided to issue a stop work order until this budget debate is resolved. The construction management firm, J.E.Dunn, has been notified that all work and planning on the Community Centers is to be stopped until further notice. The Commissioners are in discussion with office holders to look at all possible options."
