The Dent County Commissioners held their regular meeting at the Dent County Courthouse Monday morning. At the meeting, District 1 Commissioner Bobby Simpson reported that crews are still preparing the Cedar Grove Road and Dent County Road 424A for chip and seal.  District 2 Commissioner J.J. Tune reported that brush would be cut on Dent County Road 402 and grading would be done on Dent County Roads 233 and 234. Tune also said a crew is replacing a road pipe on the Golf Course Road to prepare it for the one mile extension of chip and seal. Presiding Commissioner Darrell Skiles reported that he would be meeting with Dent County’s Emergency Operation Review Committee Thursday to review and make changes if needed to the Local Emergency Operation Plan. Dent County Clerk Angie Clerk reported that she would be attending a South Central County Clerk’s meeting Wednesday in West Plains. Curley also reported that the total cost for April’s Municipal Election came to $13,410.88. The Clerk’s office also received the final bill from Platte County for housing Earl Forrest in their county jail. The total cost came to $9,000 and the Commission agreed to pay the bill. Red Cummings and Sharon English attended the meeting to inform the Commission of a public meeting that they attended in Phelps County last week. The meeting, which is held once a year, is called Phelps County Out Reach Night and it consists of all county officials meeting together in one room to allow citizens the chance to express any concerns or ask questions. Cummings and English both said they would like to see Dent County do something like this. Commissioner Skiles said he spoke with Phelps Counties Presiding Commissioner about this and how it was organized and he too would like to see this happen in Dent County.  Commissioner Simpson said it would not be a vote of the Commission, but a vote of all county officials. Commissioner Tune said he was not opposed to the idea, but he feels the Courthouse is very available for the public to come in and express any concerns or ask any questions. The Commission said they would discuss this topic more at a later date. The next meeting of the Commissioners will be Thursday morning at 9:00 and the meeting is open to the public.
