With no one scheduled to appear, the Marion County Commission heard updates on work being done on roads and in the courthouse.
Mike Schaefer, highway supervisor, reported black-topping has begun throughout the county, but work had been suspended on Monday because a load of oil had not arrived as scheduled.
Black-top work on County Road 266, south of Palmyra, has been started, but Schaefer said he figured it will be sometime next week before it is finished.
Other black-top work includes a lot of patching throughout the county, Schaefer said.
In her report, Teya Stice, county improvement coordinator, noted she had received a call from Allen’s Carpet, and the carpet for the two offices off the courtroom in the Palmyra Courthouse has arrived.
Work is expected to begin on the judge’s office and the lawyers’ office once items have been removed from those locations, Stice said, adding J.T. Brown Moving will be moving out items this week.
She also reported the chairs were taken last week from the courtroom and various places in the courthouse by MVE (Missouri Vocational Enterprises) to their facility in Charleston, Mo. to be repaired.
Thirty-one chairs are being re-caned, and 25 barrel-back chairs are being repaired, Stice said.
Stice also presented Presiding Commissioner David Lomax with some paperwork on the county’s new storage facility to sign, including the contract with Bleigh Construction and the Notice to Proceed.
Lomax also signed some final closeout paperwork on the County Road 402 bridge project.
