Pulaski Commissioners Send Several Requests to Council

Pulaski County Commissioners Larry Brady, Vice President Terry Young, and President Tracey Shorter

The Pulaski County Commissioners last week approved a number of requests pending council approval, including a lease for rental of a copier for the surveyor’s office.

Kris Smith of Copiers Plus addressed the commissioners to explain what the company does and go over the equipment currently located in the surveyor’s office. Smith explained he was called a few years ago to provide copiers, printers and other equipment, as well as maintenance of those items. Smith presented a proposal for the rental of a machine capable of printing 11-by-17-inch pages, a necessity for the office.

The commissioners approved a motion to approve the rental of the copier pending council approval.

County Commissioner Terry Young also made a motion to allow the Recycling Center to once again purchase aluminum cans, pending council approval. Last year, the commissioners tried to do the same but the council rejected a $20,000 request to fund the hire of a part-time employee to assist with the increased amount of work. Recycling Center Director Ed Clark said he doesn’t know why the council rejected the request, but they did, and they’re returning again this year with the same request.

A motion was made and passed to allow the Recycling Center to once again purchase aluminum cans, but the county council will once again have the final say in the matter.
