The Logan County Commission had a short meeting Tuesday afternoon, but the benefits to the county will be far reaching.
The commission presented a letter of commitment to the Big Harts Waterline Extension Project, Phase II. The commission granted $200,000 to assist the project. Commission President Danny Godby said that their aim is to see the whole county receive good, drinkable water.
Two community grants were issued to relieve sewer line issues across the county: one for Monaville ($850) and one for Holden road ($2,650). The projects are expected to help around 25 people each.
The commission also approved numerous requests from organizations around the county: $10,000 for the Logan County fire school, $112,000 to assist the Cora Fire Department in buying a new engine and paying off other debts, and travel expenses for many sports programs including Man High School’s tennis team that is playing in the state tournaments.
The commission approved the request to hire Rebecca Deskins as a full-time deputy with no increase in the budget.
Routine matters were disposed of quickly.
The next meeting will be held June 9 at 3 p.m.
