QC Amends Personnel Policy at Meeting

Members of the Clay County Quorum Court amended the county's personnel policy at Monday night's regular meeting at Corning. The JPs also approved a resolution of willingness to partner with ArDOT on a rail project in the western district, discussed lease agreements for road graders and were informed the county would be moving to a directdeposit system in the months to come. They also voted to submit Rhonda Ahrent, of Corning, to the governor for consideration of being named to fill out the unexpired term of her husband, Greg, and were introduced to the newest staff member.

With Justice Jody Henderson absent from the gathering, the meeting was called to order by Judge Mike Patterson. After dispensing with the usual agenda matters, they turned their attention to Resolution 2019-04. It establishes an agreement between the county and state concerning work along the rail crossing on CR 419/ CR 142 which is earmarked for improvements.

“They'll be coming in there and installing lights and straightening it up some,” Patterson explained. “They're estimating the cost at $290,000 to $300,000 and 10 percent of that would be our part.”
