Pulaski County Commissioners Discuss Maintenance Items

The Pulaski County Commissioners this week discussed a number of maintenance items for the county with Maintenance Director Morry Demarco. According to Demarco, the old county highway garage is in need of being cleaned out and boarded up, but a number of gas heaters remain in the building. He asked the commissioners if they would like the heaters to be moved to other county buildings where they could be used.

Commissioner Michael Tiede told Demarco to ask the new county garage if they have any need for the heaters, and if not, he told Demarco to try to sell the heaters.

Demarco also told the commissioners that he was approached by County EMA Director Larry Hoover regarding the possibility of installing a new fence around the county’s EMA generator. He says the grant they received for the work was only $3000, but the fence is expected to cost at least $3800. Demarco asked the commissioners if they would be willing to cover the remaining $800 to install a chain-link fence around the generator.

Because the generator currently has a wooden fence around it, EMA is looking to have a chain-link fence installed for additional security, but the commissioners felt that because it’s already fenced, that money could be spent on something else for the department.
