Cutting the number of county commission meetings from four to two Tuesdays a month isn’t something that’s high, or even on, Davison County’s list of priorities, the commissioners said recently.
That means Davison County will remain the only county in The Daily Republic’s 17-county readership area that meets on a weekly basis. Other counties meet once or twice a month.
There were three piles of warrants sitting on a table outside Grace Murphy’s office Friday.
The 50 or 60 warrants in the piles are just a small portion of the approximately 2,900 waiting to be processed in Davison County.
A warrant is an order from a judge requiring a sheriff or other officer to arrest someone and bring them to court to answer a charge.
The Davison County commissioners continued fine-tuning the 2011 budget Tuesday during their regular meeting at the courthouse in Mitchell.
With the assistance of Sheriff David Miles and Jail Administrator Don Radel, the commissioners made some snips that were satisfactory to both offices.
Burt Wilson says he’s feeling calmer these days.
Wilson, treasurer of the Mitchell Rural Fire Association, says he has accepted the fact that his organization will have to borrow money to finance about 20 percent of a new $55,000 grass rig.
He was expecting approximately $17,000 from Davison County but has collected only $5,990. Now, the group will borrow money from a local bank at 6 percent interest.
