The Barton County Commission will hold its organizational meeting at 9 a.m. Monday in its Courthouse chambers. As part of the agenda, the meeting will adjourn to the main 20th Judicial District courtroom where newly elected commissioners will be sworn in by County Clerk Bev Schmeidler.

After this, the reconstituted commission will meet in the commission chambers for re-organizational matters.

The electees include: First District, Duane Reif, Republican, Great Bend, replacing Kirby Krier; Fourth District, Tricia Schlessiger, Republican, Ellinwood, replacing Jon Prescott; and Fifth District, Donna Zimmerman, Republican, Great Bend, replacing Jennifer Schartz.

The first full agenda meeting with the newly seated commission will take place at 9 a.m. Wednesday, Jan. 18, in the commission chambers.
