The Dent County Commissioners regular meeting was held Thursday morning at the Dent County Courthouse. In the road report, both districts road crews will be repairing and replacing road signs. In District 1, Commissioner Dennis Purcell reported that a tree will be cut on the county right-of-way on Dent County Road 5630, and brush will be cut on Dent County Road 5520. He also said that the county crews would be out patch grading washouts. In District 2, Commissioner Gary Larson said that dead trees are going to be removed from the county right-of-way on Dent County Roads 2530 and 3290. He stated that workers were checking for washouts, repairing the chip and sealed Dent County Road 3260, and the road crew will grade Dent County Road 2320 if it is not too wet.
