Commissioners Commemorative Seal

Bates County Commissioners, in recognition of moving public offices to a new location in 2019, have commissioned this seal as a representation of events in Bates County history. The seal’s original concept design was developed by Lucille Mundey, Jennifer Bolling and Peggy Buhr, all from Bates County. Michael Lee of Butler took their thoughts and put together the graphic design. Afterwards the design was approved by the Commission and was printed by Billy Humble H3 Graphics. Production was paid for by Alvin Griffin Northern Commissioner.

This seal represents Bates County and the historical events this County has experienced. The light bulb represents the first city west of the Mississippi to have electricity, the Dough Boy soldier, WW1, the farm scene, Bates County as an agriculture county, the coal shovel, the strip mining throughout the county, the North and South soldiers, the Civil war and the log cabin, our frontier history.
