Pulaski County Council Approves Final Bridge Payment


The Pulaski County Council approved the purchase of a new truck for the highway department to replace a truck that was wrecked during the winter an additional  truck for the department.

Highway Superintendent Mark Fox also presented the council members with a transfer request of $20,724.91 from bridge repairs to Bridge 268, or Haschel Bridge.

“This bridge is now complete and has passed all of its final inspections,” explained Fox. “That amount of money is to pay the ten percent retainage. This is the final payment. Ten percent is left out of all of their payments to be paid after all of the final inspections are completed on the bridge. That is part of the original contract amount.”

That request was passed on a unanimous vote.
