ROAD BUSINESS ~ Highway Commissioner:

Denny stated they are moving equipment out of Edwards plant, and they were having issues getting the $10,000 bond sent to the Township but finally have received it.

Denny had the Township trucks help the semis leaving Edwards plant since the County never showed up. They started at 7 am and the Township employees held signs to get the trailer out onto the highway since they had to stop traffic to get onto Route 24. They asked for help again today, but after reviewing information, Denny declined to help as there could be a liability issue since they are leaving Township roads but turning onto County roads.

They were having problems with the hot-patcher and the closest company is in St. Louis. They were able to get some parts and fix it themselves. Denny feels it is working now.
