Morris, Inc.: Chad Hicks thanked the Commission for speaking to him regarding material needed for the new Missouri River Bridge. The project will need 30,000 yards, or 55,000 ton of ‘dirty screen’ gravel. Dirty screen gravel is a mixture of unwashed low grade crushed stone with shale, dirt, clay, fines, etc. It packs down very tightly and holds very well in place. Morris, Inc. would like to haul it from the county pit as it will be a short haul. Morris, Inc. is willing to pay the County royalties for the gravel. Chad and Lee Smith will check the pit and make sure there will be enough gravel for the bridge project before the details are finalized.

Chad Hicks informed the Commission that Morris, Inc. has two weeks left of crushing gravel at the Buffalo Pit.

Highway Department:  Lee Smith presented to the Commissioners a report of work performed by the Highway Department for the month of March 2021, which consists of plowing snow and ice, stripping gravel at the Buffalo Pit, blading roads, hauling blow dirt from Verendrye Road, stockpile gravel at Hayes Shop and working on equipment.

Gravel: No action was taken.
