Commission hosts brief meeting

Published 12:00 am Monday, January 23, 2023

The Lawrence County Commission hosted a brief meeting on Tuesday, dealing mostly with routine business.

The only item not on the agenda was when Commissioner Mike Finley put forward the idea of getting bids on a four-wheel drive truck for use by Cory Watson, who does IT and maintenance for the county.

Finley said this is necessary, as Watson’s work requires him to go to many remote locations.

Commissioners Colton Copley and DeAnna Holliday agreed to looking for a vehicle under $50,000.

“We can get something used, that still has life in it,” Finley said.
