Also during their regular meeting on Monday, commissioners approved an agreement with Herrman Lumber Company for the purchase of materials for construction of a new maintenance building at the Taney County Transfer Station, at a cost not to exceed 7-thousand 80-dollars.

They also approved a bid from AmeriGas for the purchase of propane at 1-dollar and 39-cents per gallon, and an agreement with Terminix for pest control at the animal control facility for 672-dollars.

Commissioners also discussed the possibility of providing another vehicle to the county coroner’s office, which currently employs three deputy coroners. Coroner Tony Mullen is not asking for a new vehicle, but a used one, possibly from the sheriff’s office.
