$12K 'Yard' expense raises road questions
Thursday, April 10, 2014 1:00 PM
Madison County supervisors did not approve the monthly Road Department report on Monday after District 2 Supervisor Ronny Lott questioned nearly $12,000 worth of work labeled "Yard."
"I don't know what yard this refers to," Lott said at the meeting.
According to the report, there were 120.5 man hours and the total cost was $11,756.07.
He said he didn't want to approve the report because of the vague listing.
On Wednesday morning, Andrew Grant, Road Department business manager, said the yard in question referred to a county stockyard and the time was spent unloading materials such as pea gravel.
He said it just wasn't documented as well as it should have been.
