The Dent County Commissioners met Thursday morning at the Dent County Courthouse for their regular meeting. In the road report, District 1 Commissioner Dennis Purcell said that workers are repairing or replacing downed or stolen road signs. He also said that grading was being done on Dent County Road 6080 and 6110, and brush was going to be cut on 6630 and 6670. He went on to say that one of the workers would be screening gravel. In District 2, Commissioner Gary Larson said that brush was going to be cut on Dent County Roads 4290 and 4300, and the workers will be servicing brush cutter #6 as well as other equipment during the rain. Larson stated that the gravel plant is running so that MSHA can do their inspections on the operations and machinery. Larson wanted to let the public know that the county is doing their best at getting brush cut on the county roads. With over 700 miles of roads to maintain, the county has four brush cutters that can each cut about three miles of road per day, and most of this summer one of the brush cutters has been down for repairs slowing up the process. He asks that the public be patient, as the road crews will be getting to the roads as soon as they possibly can. Presiding Commissioner Darrell Skiles said that he attended the MRPC meeting Thursday night in St. James. Dent County Clerk Angie Curley said that the bills were ready for the commissioners to sign, and that she and the county treasurer balanced last week. The next meeting of the Dent County Commissioners will be Monday morning at 9:00 at the Dent County Courthouse and the meeting will be open to the public.

A representative from U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill’s staff will be at the Salem Public Library in Salem, from 10:00 to 11:00 this morning to talk with local residents.

At the meetings, the staff reports all feedback they receive directly to McCaskill. The Kitchen Table Talks also serve, in part, to inform area residents of the services that are available to them when they contact one of her regional offices. McCaskill’s staff can assist constituents on a range of federal government issues.
