Barton Community College’s Science and Math building will no longer be a voting site for residents of Barton County Township-A. The Barton County Commission has approved a plan for the Road and Bridge Department to pave the parking lot at the Sheriff’s Firing Range located east of the college on NE 30 Road and that will allow the building on that site to be used as a voting site.
County Clerk/Election Officer Donna Zimmerman told the commissioners last Monday that the parking lot is covered with loose rock and must be paved to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act. “The Sheriff’s Firing Range is a county-owned property and will work well for voting,” she said.
“And during the time of voting it would not be used as a firing range,” Commission Chairwoman Jennifer Schartz commented. “Exactly right,” Zimmerman said.
