Departmental Reports:

County Clerk’s June Report was presented to the Commissioners. To date, 15 absentee ballots have been mailed out to Permanent Absentee Voters.

            Sheriff Bonham informed the Commissioners that they have upgraded to Leeds on line and the invoice will be $1300.00 when it comes in. He has received complaints that the train has been stopped on the tracks blocking CR 433 and CR 432.  He reported that the Department is ready for the Fair this coming week, it will be lowered key, more of a walking and talking approach.  He informed the Commissioners that new employee Ricky Jarvis who is familiar with the Meta area, will be moving to Meta.


Public Comments: 

Jerry Bryan reported that Purple Wave was difficult to contact, but he has placed a bid on the safe that is listed on their auction site.  He stated that it would have been better for the County if they would have accepted his bid prior to listing on Purple Wave. So far, he has the winning bid.


Commissioner Glavin asked to speak about CR 738.  He reported that people in Belle wanted to have CR 378 extended across the railroad tracks to connect with HWY 28.  It will take about 250 of new road, Railroad and Highway Permits to get approval.  He will attend a meeting to see just what is wanted.  It is unclear where the road actually lies within the City limits of Belle.


With no further business, Commissioner Glavin made the motion to adjourn and the meeting was adjourned at 9:45 AM.
