The Dent County Commissioners met Monday for their regular meeting at the Dent County Courthouse. Dent County Treasurer Denita Williams brought in the sales tax report for the money received in February and she said the county received $55,439.21, and year to date, the county is up over the first two months of 2013 by $5,827.97 with a total receipts of near $118,000.
