GRADY COUNTY — Spring is just around the corner. Grady County can look forward to longer, sunnier days … and tornados.

Grady County Emergency Management Director, Dale Thompson, is staying informed on these twisted downfalls to spring. Thompson recently attended the National Tornado Summit at the Cox Convention Center in Oklahoma City to learn more about new weather products, technology and social media that can be used to keep the county informed. Thompson encouraged the Grady County Commissioners to attend the annual conference next year.

Aside from a few, small brush fires, Thompson said that things have been quiet on the fire department side.

There was no action taken on the discussion and possible approval of a new road crossing resolution.

In other business:

•    The monthly Grady County Health Department report was approved.
