A landscaping bid was awarded to Fix-It-Nix ($32,000 with Jim Minor Garden Homes, $24,000 without). January budget revisions and County levies for alcohol licensing were also approved.

Dallas County Attorney John Kelly had three resolutions approved, including a $7,400 refund to Vaughan Regional Medical Center (VRMC) for sales taxes wrongfully paid on durable medical equipment. Tanya Miles was approved for appointment to the Dallas County E-911 Communications Board  Amendment I , which the Alabama County Commission Association (ACCA) wanted in its laws in the March 5 election, was also approved.

Dallas County Engineer Anthony Crear’s resolution to accept an auction proposal from E-Wood was approved. Five dump trucks bought in 2022 were sold for the March 19-22 auction for $1 million, with 7% interest. The county will receive $988,000 of that amount, which Nunn said is slightly more than what they bought for. They were purchased at over $800,000.

The entire commission was present: Probate Judge Jimmy Nunn, Commissioners Curtis Williams, Jan Justice, Vivian Rogers and Connel Towns.
