The Dent County Commissioners held their regular meeting at the Dent County Courthouse Thursday morning.  At the meeting District 1 Commissioner Bobby Simpson reported that conditions are too wet for grading, so District 1 crews would be hauling white rock to the Cedar Grove Road and Dent County Road 424A, which are being chip and sealed. Simpson said each road is between 60% and 70% complete.  District 2 Commissioner J.J. Tune also reported that conditions are too wet for grading, so District 2 crews are hauling white rock to the Golf Course Road and checking road signs.  Tune said that brush would be cut on Dent County Road 402 and a tree would be removed from Dent County Road 333. Presiding Commissioner Darrell Skiles reported that he attended the Local Emergency Operations Review Committee meeting on Tuesday.
