The White County Board met on Tuesday night for their October meeting. Following approval of the September meeting minutes and paying bills, States Attorney Denton Aud presented the Board with a letter of thanks from the Guardian Center in regards to the donation of a surplus printer. Director Sheryl Woodham said in the letter that the Guardian Center had helped 43 White County children in the past year.
Wes Trout was appointed to the White County Housing Authority Board by unanimous vote, filling the vacancy created by the resignation of Ezra Millspaugh, who had served on that Board for several years.
The Board approved the renewal of Guardian Insurance for county employees. The rates will remain the same this year, but some employees could see increases due to entering a new age bracket.
Three Federal Participation agreements were entered into by the Board by unanimous motion. Federal and State funds will be used to improve and repair bridges in the Phillips, Heralds Prairie, and Indian Creek township road districts. County Engineer Brian Ray said two of the bridges still had timber frames, and each would be made safer through the repairs and replacements.
Three parcels in Mill Shoals Township through the Trustees Program were approved for sale to Everett Stanley.
There was no Executive Session and the Board adjourned the meeting at 7:10 pm. The White County Board will meet again on Tuesday, November 15th at 7 pm at the White County Courthouse.
