County Commission makes repairs at the 4-H grounds
Tyler County Commission handled a light agenda on Tuesday morning as they met to discuss the ongoing projects at the Tyler County 4-H grounds.
Vice President John Stender informed the commission the new well drilled on the site is now complete. “The well is better than we anticipated,” stated Stender.
Stender also informed the other commissioners of the replacement of the water heaters in the dorms. He said that the old units will be replaced with electric water heaters.
But the renovation was not without problems. It was discovered that the gas lines running to the main building were made of plastic. A leak in the plastic line has cost the county approximately $150 per month. The lines will be replaced.
Stender also reported that dirt was brought in for fill on both sides of the sidewalk.
A total of $20,000 was received through a grant for capital improvements on the 4-H grounds.
“We are trying to make it as nice as possible for the people who want to use it,” stated Stender. “
The 4-H building has been used for wedding receptions, church camps, 4-H camps and reunions in the past, and Stender is diligent in his efforts to restore the grounds and make it a better setting for community functions.
In other business, Linda Jensen attended the meeting about the Cow House and Adonis Road name change. She attended the meeting on Sept. 7 asking for the name change.
At that time, the commissioners told her to get names of neighbors who were in agreement with the proposed change.
She informed them on Tuesday that the neighbors she spoke with do not want the name change.
In light of this, Jensen instead requested that the commissioners requisition a sign to be posted at the beginning of the road as there is currently no sign there. According to Jensen, Adonis Road starts at Anna Stewart’s house.
Commissioner Robert Wable agreed to send a letter asking for the sign to be posted.
