Road bonds released

Wednesday, January 25, 2012

During the Clay County Commissioners special meeting Tuesday morning, the commissioners released two road bonds.

Ed Hartzburge of Peabody Midwest Mine spoke at the regular meeting in the beginning of January.

He discussed with the commissioners the release of bonds for County Road 200 S., CR 950 S. and CR 100 W.

Hartzburge wrote a document that was sent to County Attorney Eric Somheil, who approved the document.

"I've read these and looked them over," Commissioner Paul Sinders said. "As far as I can determine, the coal company has done everything that is required of them in the agreement and in the requirements for the bond."

The commissioners approved the release of bonds for CR 950 S., CR 200 S. and CR 100 W.

The agreements for CR 950 S. and CR 200 S. both call for work to be done, including ditching and adding gravel after the bonds are released.

However, for CR 100 S., all work is already finished.

Meanwhile, the commissioners accepted the not-for-profit contract with 4-H, including funding of $14,500 to pay for fair expenses in 2012.

The Clay County Commissioners meet the first Monday of each month at 9 a.m., in the Commissioner's Courtroom of the Clay County Courthouse.

The next meeting is scheduled for Monday, Feb. 6, at 9 a.m. All meetings are open to the public.
