The Dent County Commissioners held their regular meeting at the Dent County Courthouse Thursday morning.  At the meeting Commissioners Bobby Simpson and J.J. Tune both reported that due to roads repeatedly thawing and freezing limited grading is being done.  District 1 crews are spot grading in the Montauk and Gladden areas and hauling gravel to various roads throughout the district.  District 2 crews are also spot grading and hauling gravel to various roads and brush is being cut on Dent County Roads 429 and 430.  Presiding Commissioner Darrel Skiles reported that he would be attending a Community Development Workshop Friday in Jefferson City.  Dent County Clerk Angie Curley reported that a dedication ceremony for the JoAnn Barnes Memorial Highway will be held Thursday, March 14th; a time and location will be set at a later date.  Linda Harris stopped by the meeting to discuss the possibility of getting Dent County Road 651, which leads to Cedar Grove, chip and sealed.  Commissioner Simpson explained that part of the road is in the Ozark National Scenic Riverways jurisdiction and the Commission has to contact the National Park Service before the county can even touch that section of road.  Simpson said would be contacting the Park Service with this request within the next 30 days. Mary Faye Cook also stopped by the meeting to request that the county do more to maintain Dent County Road 667 that leads from Route YY to Montauk State Park. Commissioner Simpson explained that this is a similar situation as with the Cedar Grove Road. Part of DCR 667 is in the ONSR jurisdiction and the county has minimal access to what can be  done to that section of road. The next meeting of the Commissioners will be Monday morning at 9:00 and the meeting is open to the public.
