County News # 1The Marshall County Commissioners had a full agenda for their meeting Monday morning.

County Highway Superintendent Jason Peters gave the commissioners a map pin-pointing the roads he suggests they mark with NO THRU TRUCK signs.  The commissioners will review his recommendations and make a final decision at their next meeting.

Commissioner Mike Delp suggested adding a smaller sign at the bottom of the NO THRU TRUCK sign indicating the maximum violation fine $300.  Commissioner Stan Klotz agreed with the recommendation.

In other Highway business, Peters said notice to bidders for the 2019 Community Crossing paving projects will be advertised very soon and bid packets will be available at the highway department.

The highway department will be selling an 821 Case Loader and the notice of selling will be sent out with the request for sealed bids.  Peters said he plans to purchase a newer used loader so he will also consider the trade–in value and whichever is greater is the way he will go.  He commented that the specs for the newer loader are general enough for several different brands.

The Commissioners also approved 6 road cuts for directional bores for REMC fiber-optic; 3 for Precision Utility Group and 1 for BSM Group.
