County approves sharing graders with District 1

Then after some discussion Parish resented his vote to have the matter tabled until the next meeting and was approved with a vote of three to two, with Williams and Merchant voting “no.”

Board then approved of Parish’s idea that the rest of the districts lend District 1 support until a decision could be made at the next meeting after resolving that one day of overtime for a grader operator would be cheaper than leasing equipment.

“Personally I believe our entire system isn’t efficient,” said Parish. “We’ve got an abundance of equipment unevenly placed within districts and this mentality of each district only supporting itself is ridiculous, however we have neither the resources nor the man power to resolve the issue now.”

Williams’ findings also showed that District 3 grader’s GPS hadn’t been activated yet and board approved to have it activated as soon as possible.

Board agreed to have the matter tabled until the next meeting, which is scheduled for 6 p.m. on Sept. 24.
