County Commission alters staffing plan


In other business, the commission:

• Appropriated up to $12,500 in matching funds to the city of Athens for construction of a preliminary access road into the Killen property north of the Elm Street Industrial Park;

• Hired Justin Brown as an equipment operator II in the paving crew under the direction of County Engineer Richard Sanders; and

• Awarded a three-month contract to low bidder W.H. Thomas Oil Company of Decatur at 17 cents over the rack rate — which is lower than the retail rate — for gas and diesel. The rack rate is derived from adding the cost of fuel transportation, overhead and profit to the fuel market price.

The commission will hold a work session at 10 a.m. Wednesday, Jan. 16, at the Washington Street annex and a regular meeting at 10 a.m. Monday, Jan. 21, at the Clinton Street annex.
