PULASKI COUNTY, Mo. (Oct. 19, 2015) — Meeting briefly Monday morning with one member absent, the Pulaski County commissioners approved a plan to maintain the road leading to the Weeks Hollow wastewater treatment facility and appointed two members to the Pulaski County Senior Citizens Board.

Sewer District Operations Manager Zach Shepherd planned to present the road maintenance agreement last Thursday but the item wasn’t on the posted agenda, so he returned today with the same plan. According to the terms of the intergovernmental cooperative agreement, the county will provide grading and maintenance on Hank Lane, which runs from Highway 28 to the treatment plant, with the county paying for labor and any necessary maintenance and repair of equipment while the sewer district will provide and pay for the gravel used in maintenance.

The agreement also specifies that the county road workers will maintain Hank Lane when they’re already in the area for maintenance of other roads.

In other business, the two commissioners present, Presiding Commissioner Gene Newkirk and Eastern District Commissioner Lynn Sharp, appointed Flora Adkison and Dottie Gilstrap to the Pulaski County Senior Citizens Board.

Sharp said he was glad the two women wanted to serve but regretted that more don’t volunteer.

“It’s not who wants to run; it’s who can you get to run. Lots of people don’t want to be involved anymore,” Sharp said.
