County approves roads department building
LEXINGTON—The Dawson County roads department will soon have shelter for two large pieces of expensive equipment.
Commissioners voted Friday to accept a bid for $41,898 from T.L. Sund Co. of Lexington to construct a building for storing two county road graders.
Roads department employees have been parking the machines on land the county owns approximately eight miles north of Lexington.
The two-stall, 40x60 aluminum-sided building on that site will allow the graders to be parked inside as well as provide room for regular maintenance and blade storage.
One other bid of $56,980 was received from Cleary Buildings of Wellfleet.
In other business, commissioners:
- approved an annual value statement and crime report for liability insurance through Barney Insurance.
