Webster County ADA Transition Plan
Webster County has contracted with the Southwest Missouri Council of Governments (SMCOG) to prepare an Americans with Disabilities Act Transition Plan in compliance with Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act.
The draft plan is available here and at www.smcog.org until Friday, February 16, 2019. The public is strongly encouraged to review and provide comments on the plan to Megan Clark, Senior Planner, Southwest Missouri Council of Governments at 417-836-6901 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

As a way to strengthen ties and support the Webster County community, the Missouri Job Center, Ozark Region, is hosting a Rural Outreach Initiative Town Hall on Thursday, August 30, 5:30-7:00 pm, at the Central Bank Community Room, 1197 Spur Dr., Marshfield.
“The purpose of this town hall is to identify any challenges the county may be facing, as well as address needs in the local workforce,” said Mary Ann Rojas, Director of the Missouri Job Center. We’ll be gleaning information from a panel discussion made up of 3-5 local employers, said Rojas.
Representatives from local employers, as well as Presiding Commissioner Paul Ipock and City Administrator John Benson, will be on hand to discuss current trends in employment and what resources are needed to develop or retain workers. The public is invited to attend this free event.
“The Missouri Job Center is focused on continually addressing workforce needs in the community by partnering with local companies to ensure workers are adequately trained,” said Sharon Walker, president of the Job Center’s Workforce Development Board.

On Wednesday, December 6, 2017, the Webster County Commission, Sheriff Roye Cole, and many other County and local representatives were present for an official ground breaking ceremony for the new Webster County Justice Center.
Phase One includes a much-needed new Jail, along with a Sheriff’s Office and one Courtroom for criminal proceedings. Eventually, Phase Two envisions more Courtrooms – along with court staff and Prosecutor offices, and other law enforcement related facilities to support them. For the time being, however, the majority of judicial activity will continue to take place in the current Courthouse.
The administrative portion of Phase One wraps around the west side of the new Jail. It resembles the former Robertson Hardware building in style and dimension – but gains valuable square footage by adding 40 feet in width.
The Jail itself is a formidable two story 120’ x 120’ concrete box. The facility is capable of holding 110 beds; 96 in the main (higher security) set of ‘pods’, with an additional 14 lighter security beds in the basement beneath the administrative wing.
The total budget for the project is $18.5 million. The County will fund a portion with of reserve funds saved over the past several years, and will issue $10 million in bonds for the remainder. The Commission intends to pay the debt service for the facility with existing revenues.
If the process continues to move smoothly, the County expects to have Phase Once completed by August 2019.
