|Written by Darci Tomky|
Phillips County Commissioners approved the purchase of security cameras for the Phillips County Event Center, as reported at their April 26 meeting.
Eleven cameras were purchased from Super Circuits in Texas for approximately $3,600.
Commissioners reported the second phase of the Homesteaders Park project was scheduled to begin this week. The enhancement project includes sprinklers, fencing, curb/gutter, parking lot and electrical lights.
Phillips County recreation department has $30,000 for use within the county. The funds will be split evenly with the Phillips County Fairgrounds, the east side of the county and the west side of the county each receiving $10,000 for improvements as they see fit. Commissioners will make the final approval on the projects.
Also in April, the county received its roll-off truck with 10 containers for use in the county. The cost to use the roll-off containers is $200 a box with a $50 initial delivery fee and $20 for each additional container needed, plus whatever it costs to take the materials to the landfill.
Commissioners reported Centennial Ag had applied for a conditional use permit to put large fertilizer storage tanks on Rusty Triplette’s property east of town. At the commissioners’ concern that the area is in a flood plane, Centennial Ag decided not to store the tanks there, but will just be using the quonset (currently Jake’s Feed) for a storefront and to house some products.
Judy Weimer was recently appointed Phillips County deputy coroner.
