After the budget was presented, District 1Commissioner Dennis Purcell made a motion to accept the budget, but with a change to the Road and Bridge Department budget. Purcell noted that chip and seal roads were not done last year and he and District 2 Commissioner Gary Larson felt that chip and seal roads needed to be maintained this year. Although no new chip and seal roads may be added, there are several current chip and seal roads that if not maintained this year, the county could lose those roads due to extreme weather conditions. Purcell made a motion to add $30,000.00 to the Road and Bridge Department budget from General Revenue for chip and seal, and both Commissioners noted another $10,000.00 would come from somewhere within their own budget for a total of $40,000.00 for chip and seal maintenance this year. Another addition was made to the General Revenue through the Recorder of Deeds office for the buyout of copiers that totaled $9,100.00. The information on the copier buyout came in after budgets had been prepared and submitted. After approval of the amendments to the budget, the Commission voted 3-0 to accept the 2014 budget for Dent County. The meeting was then adjourned.
