POMEROY — The Meigs County County Commissioners unanimously approved a half million dollar paving project during Thursday’s weekly meeting.
The bid was awarded to Shelly Company with a bid of $525,523.80 for the project which will pave three county roads.
Roads to be resurfaced are County Road 26 — Flatwoods Road, County Road 82 — Texas Road, and County Road 122 — Roy Jones Road.
The projects are to begin on or before July 23 and be completed within 90 days or approximately October 21.
The commissioners approved a request from Morgan Tucker concerning his Eagle Scout project. Tucker is proposing building a shelter/picnic area behind the Meigs County Courthouse.
The letter submitted by Tucker stated that he would also be asking for approval from the Boy Scouts of America office and then would be getting blue prints for the project.
The blue prints would then require approval from the commissioners before the project could proceed.
The commissioners approved appointments to the Workforce Investment Board as presented by Chris Shank, Director of Meigs County Job and Family Services.
Appointments were Martha Waddell, who was reappointed, Donald Vaughan, Jr, and Kim Payne, who was reappointed. Terms run from July 1, 2012 to June 30, 2014.
Present at the meeting were commissioners Tom Anderson, Tim Ihle, and Michael Bartrum, clerk Gloria Kloes, Randy Hart and County Engineer Eugene Triplett.
