Pulaski County Commissioners to Discuss Upcoming Community Crossings Projects Tonight

Pulaski County Commissioners: Mike McClure, Jerry Locke, Kenny Becker

The Pulaski County Commissioners will continue making arrangements for summer paving work tonight. Highway Superintendent Terry Ruff is expected to discuss the county’s Community Crossings projects.

The county was recently awarded just over $877,000 through the state program. Plans call for hot mix asphalt work on County Road 550 South west of State Road 39 and County Road 600 South from State Road 119 to Base Road.

The commissioners still have to choose a contractor. They had initially awarded a $1.18 million bid to Town & Country Paving, but the work had to be rebid to meet the grant specifications. Town & County remained the lowest bidder the second time around.

The removal of a large ash tree by the Annex Building will also be revisited tonight. Last month, the commissioners decided to hold off on approving the lone bid they’d received, to see whether the Highway Department could handle the work instead.

In other business tonight, Dr. Natalie Daily-Federer and Superior Court Judge Crystal Brucker Kocher will discuss a grant opportunity. The commissioners are also scheduled to hear from EMS Director Brandon DeLorenzo, Director of Environmental Health Terri Hansen, Clerk JoLynn Behny, and Sheriff Jeff Richwine.

Tonight’s Pulaski County Commissioners meeting starts at 6:00 EDT in the Pulaski County Courthouse.
