The board then approved a Notice of Award for a Demolition & Site Revitalization Program – Project #2 (two properties). The award was given to Dirt X Construction Excavating, of Arcanum. The price of the awarded contract is $13,950.

Lastly, the board discussed the County Commissioner’s Conference that they attended last week.

All said that the conference was a successful weekend.

“It was a good three days,” Commissioner Holmes said. “They had one of their larger attendance. It was good time for us to find out what other counties are doing. I brought back a couple of resolutions for us to maybe consider for our use.”

Commissioner Stegall added that Commissioner-Elect Marshall Combs attended the conference.

“He was surprised at how many of the county commissioners around us, how we all talk and get a long together,” Commissioner Stegall said. “He really enjoyed it. I think it will work out best for him. He was there for almost two full days, took all the new commissioner stuff. He’s gearing up, and I think the county should be very happy with what you’re going to see from him.”
