Pulaski Commissioners Approve Salt Shed Repairs, Pickup Truck Purchase for Highway Department

Pulaski County Commissioners: Bud Krohn Jr., Jerry Locke, Kenny Becker

The Pulaski County Commissioners have selected a contractor to repair the highway department’s salt shed. On Monday, they chose Button Construction to do the work, which includes the installation of a metal roof.

The company submitted the low bid of just under $4,000. To pay for the upgrades, the highway department is using leftover funds from this year’s salt budget. The budget transfer was approved by the county council last week.

On Monday, the commissioners also authorized the highway department to purchase a used pickup truck for $10,500. Funding arrangements will be considered by the county council next month.
