Saline County Commission receive good numbers in November for C.A.R.T. funds

Thursday, November 20, 2014

The Saline County Commission convened for a short meeting Thursday, Nov. 20, taking care of a few items of business.

"(County Treasurer Marty Smith) has brought in the summary of the C.A.R.T. funds, which go into the road and bridge department and for the month of November, those dollars were $66,925.83 compared with $59,558.24 last year in November, so up about $7,000," Presiding Commissioner Tom Stallings said, about the County Aid Road Trust funds. "Our average this year so far for C.A.R.T. funds is running at $63,137.69 as compared to $60,613.07 last year, so we're up about $2,500 a month in C.A.R.T. funds. Which I guess means people are driving more."

Southern Commissioner Monte Fenner announced they did receive their employee handbooks, and they will receive a proof of the county's new plat book Tuesday, Nov. 25.

"We'll proofread those and proceed from there and hopefully have our new plat books by the end of December," Fenner said.

Fenner also reported the road and bridge department will be pouring concrete for the bridge west of Fairville over the next few days hoping to get it completed by Monday before frigid weather continues. He said steel will also be put on the bridge east of Fairville.

The commission also approved payroll, a payment schedule and an extension of vacation time for Pam Doane, deputy clerk in the county clerk's office.

The next meeting is scheduled for 9 a.m. Wednesday, Nov. 26, in commission chambers.
