The Dent County Commissioners held their regular meeting at the Dent County Courthouse. In the road report, District 1 Commissioner Dennis Purcell stated brush would be cut on Dent County Road 5680. He stated that two crossover pipes would be installed: one on county road 5680 and one on county road 5615, and materials would be added to both roads.  Purcell said a truck would be hauling brown rock. District 2 Commissioner Gary Larson stated that brush would be cut on county road 4290, and a man would be hauling brown rock from the creek. Larson indicated that the road crew would be putting in a pipe on county road 2330 and adding materials to that road. Presiding Commissioner Darrell Skiles is asking citizens to please check their Centurylink phone bill to make sure that Dent County citizens are paying sales taxes and the 9-1-1 surcharge to Dent County. Last year, Dent County lost $8,021.43 in 9-1-1 surcharges compared to 2012 figures. If your phone bill indicates that your paying sales tax to Phelps County, please contact Centurylink at 1-800-786-6272 and tell them to change the sales tax from Phelps to Dent County. If a citizen is told that can’t be done, hang up and call back and speak to someone else. The commissioners then approved a contract for services from the Salem Area Chamber of Commerce for $750 for the 2014 year. The commission also approved a contract for services from Lowenbaum Partnership, LLC and attorney Ivan Schrader for legal advise on state statues that deal with county commissions. Known as the County Commission Legal Services, the commissioners approved the $1,200 annual fee to be paid in four equal installments of $300 each. Sandie Hogan from the SB40 Board submitted the board recommendation to re-appoint three board members: Ron Hudson, A.J. Seay, and Chris McGuirt. The commissioners approved the re-appointments. Hogan said that one board position is still unfilled and they are looking for a new member. The next meeting of the Dent County Commissioners will be Monday morning at 9:00 and it will be open to the public.
