The sudden downpour of rain on Friday night amounted to about a half inch of rain.
“Every little bit helps,” Dale Thompson, Grady County Emergency Management Director, said at the Grady County Commissioners meeting on Monday.
Still, the forecast over the next several days looks dry and Wednesday is expected to be windy, with gusts around 30 mph.
Winds above 15 mph are considered potentially dangerous days for controlled burns.
Thompson advised that anyone doing a control burn call the fire department to let them know and to take the weather into account. For instance, the high winds on Wednesday may make it a bad day to burn.
Chris Brown of Brown’s Plumbing discussed the plumbing issues with the courthouse. Windle Hardy, Grady County Commissioner told Brown to look at the problems and schedule a time to do it.
The board decided to fix the various problems with the plumbing in phases to prevent further flooding.
In other business:
Request for bids for the Pocasset Fire Station on a new brush unit was approved.
No action was taken on the approval of letter of choice for county bridge inspection contracts.
The Memorandum of Understanding/Lease for the Tuttle Probation and Parole office was approved. Irene Kelley and Roy Koerner were approved as receiving officers for the Minco Senior Citizens Center.
