During Thursday’s Lawrence County Commission meeting, the board:

– Signed a contract with the CAO for oversight of the Athalia Tire Pile cleanup. Special projects director Doug Cade said a letter is need from the EPA, then seeking contractors and other cleanup work can commence. It’s anticipated cleanup can be completed by September.

– Passed on a request from Sheriff Tim Sexton that the county pay for security door repairs. Commissioners did not favor payment from county funds but will ask about using the jail’s "pay for stay" funds, they said.

– Approved and signed a right of way permit for Duke Energy to enter County Road 1A.

– Decided to seek information from fuel companies about bulk fuel for the sheriff’s department, after reviewing specifications on an above ground tank from Sheriff Sexton.
