He anticipates the brush will burn for about a week, keeping smoke in the area. The asphalt overlay will take about a month to complete.
His department has another project on the horizon. The Commissioners unanimously approved a bid from Oden Enterprises in Wahoo, Nebraska. They will provide the steel materials needed to replace a bridge over a culvert at the intersection of Kaw and Taber Valley Roads. The bid came in under $167,000.
The Commission tabled granting the requested access for KDHE to the Fairmont Park area until Monday. The Health and Environment Department wants to monitor toxic plumes in the area. The two agencies are finalizing some details for their agreement.
