The Dent County Commissioners met for their regular meeting at the Dent County Courthouse Thursday morning. At the meeting, Commissioners Bobby Simpson and J.J. Tune both reported that there was minor to moderate flooding in both districts. In District 1, Simpson said that crews would be out assessing roads for damage and the major area of concern would be in the Bunker and Montauk areas. In District 2, Commissioner Tune said that there was some flooding in the Sligo area and there was a report of a tree being lodged in a low water bridge in the Short Bend area. He said that he would be sending a crew out to look at the bridge, but they would probably have to wait till the water receded to remove the tree. Presiding Commissioner Darrell Skiles reported that Ed Hess from MODOT had contacted him and stated that the bridge over the Huzzah Creek in Boss would have the safety rails along the side of the bridge worked on this fall then a team would be down in January to inspect the bridge. Skiles also said that he spoke with Susan Cunningham from Spatial Data Research about where the county is with rural addressing and she told him that it’s now up to the post office to start sending out the address change notices. Dent County Clerk Angie Curley wanted to remind everyone that the last day to register to vote for the November 8th
General Election is October 8th
and if anyone has had an address change to please contact the clerks office. The Clerk’s office also held the statewide recount of the Democratic Attorney General’s race yesterday at 1:00. Shirley Hobson came by the meeting to read a letter from the Young Community Center Board. It is requesting that the polling location be moved from Dent Phelps R-3 to the Young Community Center, which was formerly the Anutt School House. The letter stated that it’s a distraction to the school and a distraction to the poll workers to be at the school. County Clerk Angie Curley said she would get in contact with Ms Hobson so she could go look at the community center. At the previous meeting, Dent County Deputy Collector, Jaquetta Noakes informed the Commission that no one redeemed the 2007 tax sale properties, so the Collector will be issuing collector deeds. The next meeting of the Commissioners will be Monday morning at 9:00 and the meeting is open to the public.
