Gail Moore Gray requested permission from the Commission to place a memorial bench in the courthouse lawn in remembrance of the eighteen deceased classmates from the Class of 1967.  The Commission approved the request.

Amy Crawford, MoDOT Area Engineer, provided updates on the field inspection conducted on August 25, 2017.  The shoulders have been pulled up on Highway 15 South and Highway 136.  Highway 15 North needs to have material added to the shoulders.  The bridges on Highway 15 North have been reviewed for the possibility of becoming one-lane bridges.  The first bridge (closest to Memphis) and the third bridge (near Route EE) will become one-lane soon.  The middle bridge (near Route BB) will remain as is due to poor sight distance with the intersection.  This bridge is also included in the STIP and will be replaced in the future.  MoDOT will issue a press release in the near future.

Ryan Clark, Road and Bridge Supervisor, met with the Commission to discuss current projects.

Seeing no further business, Presiding Commissioner Ebeling adjourned the meeting at 12:00 p.m.
