Overton County Commission held the regular monthly meeting Monday, Nov. 18, with Commissioner Robbie Melton absent. The meeting had been moved back from the usual second Monday of the month to allow for a government day off in observance of Veterans Day.
Resolution #2019-1118-01 was adopted to apply for federal assistance to buy two ambulances in an amount not to exceed $308,000.
Transferring an old ambulance from Overton County Sheriff’s Department to Hardy’s Chapel Volunteer Fire Department, at Sheriff John Garrett’s request, was approved.
Library Board member Jimmy Thompson was approved to be the Regional Board representative from Overton County in place of Elmo Garrett, whose term expired.
Approval was given for Overton County Highway Department to add the following subdivision roads to the official county road list: Cobblestone Drive, Walter Trace Drive, and Iris Lane in Walter Trace Subdivision; Golden Circle Road in Golden Meadow Subdivision; and Eagle Landing Drive, Fawn Trail, and Falcon Trail in Eagle Point Subdivision.
The following were approved as notaries at-large: Amy Beaty, Chris Masiongale, Sarah McLeod, and Sharon Halliburton.
Minutes of the October 21, 2019 County Commission meeting were approved.
Before the meeting adjourned, County Executive Ben Danner announced that the County Commission may not meet in December, unless needed for a grant approval or such.
He also gave an update on the county services building.
“Maybe Friday, they’re going to pour the second floor concrete,” Executive Danner said.
He said everything is coming along for completion by next August.
